Pop Music for Spring 2014 for Men’s & Women’s Choirs Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Stanton’s Sheet Music suggests that you make your students the stars this spring with some of these great popular music choices for women’s and men’s choirs.  Whether you’re looking for current pop, an inspirational ballad or a fun novelty number, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!

Now available for choral groups, here is MTV’s Song of the Year for 2012! Call Me Maybe by singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen is infectious, upbeat and fun.

The gospel-style showstopper Here’s Where I Stand from the movie musical “Camp” builds from a soulful opening to a powerful final chorus. Featuring a strong soloist and a self-affirming message, this arrangement would be stirring as a concert or graduation finale.

The Rodgers and Hart classic My Romance is arranged by Greg Jasperse with a rolling rhythmic feel, creating a contemporary sound for this timeless song. Easy jazz harmonies infuse the vocal lines and the ballad performs well with either piano alone or the full rhythm accompaniment.

First introduced in the Broadway musical “Lady Be Good,” the Gershwin hit Fascinating Rhythm has been covered by Rosemary Clooney, Michael Feinstein, The Four Tops, and many more. Mark Hayes’ exciting arrangement effectively includes everything from Latin rhythm to swing!

It Only Takes a Moment is a beautiful song from “Hello Dolly!,” and this lush a cappella ballad setting truly does it justice.  With heartfelt lyrics, rubato phrases, and rich choral harmonies, this will be a wonderful feature for jazz, pop and concert choirs.

From Michael Jackson’s 1987 album “Bad” and featured on almost all of his concert tours, the funk-inspired hit The Way You Make Me Feel will make a great feature for guys’ groups with its steady shuffle and R&B style vocals.
