Pop Music for Spring for Middle School Choirs Thursday, February 24, 2011

Stanton's Sheet Music suggests that you welcome summer in style by closing out your school year with some of these great popular music choices for middle school choirs.  Whether you're looking for a nostalgic pop song, a jazzy standard or a choreography feature, we'll help you find the perfect fit for your ensemble!

Originally released by The Jackson 5 in 1978, the funk-fueled pop classic Blame It on the Boogie has a freshness that still resonates!  With a sunny lead line and energetic harmonies, this is a perfect dance showcase for pop and show groups!

The smooth sounds of Brazilian jazz great Antonio Carlos Jobim are set here in a sensational Discovery Jazz chart of One Note Samba.  This song topped the charts in 1963 and will be an excellent selection for young singers to develop a feel for bossa nova style!

From the hit animated film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” where food rains down from the clouds, the upbeat and cheerful song Raining Sunshine, performed by Miranda Cosgrove, is a delightful choice that’s especially good for younger choirs and audiences.

Don’t worry about a thing!  Bob Marley‘s reggae hit Three Little Birds will make it all right!  With influences from African, Caribbean, and American Rhythm and Blues music, it all combines with a cheerful lyric for an awesome showcase for younger groups.

We Love the ‘60s is seven minutes full of nonstop fun - and perhaps some fun memories for folks in your audience!  This medley offers wonderful variety for concert or show choirs.  Includes “He's a Rebel,” “Sealed with a Kiss,” “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “Turn Around, Look at Me,” and “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher.”
