Pick Up the Pieces

Music by Malcolm Duncan

Originally Performed by Average White Band

"Pick Up the Pieces" is a 1974 song by the Average White Band from their second album, AWB. On the single, songwriting credit was given to founding member and saxophonist Roger Ball and guitarist Hamish Stuart individually and the entire band collectively. It is essentially an instrumental, apart from the song's title being shouted at several points in the song.

    Release Date: 1974

Average White Band

The 1970's group Average White Band was anything but average. They were full of funk and R&B soul. This hit from their second album is stylish and this new arrangement captures that style perfectly. This is a show stopper.

Voicing: SATBB

Various Arrangers : Pop Classics for Mixed Voices

Thie Olivia Newton-John hit from the '70s "Let Me Be There" translates perfectly as a gospel-edged pop piece for today's choirs. There's a little hint of Elvis, too. Well-crafted choral writing combines with rhythmic drive to make your group come alive. There's a brief hand clapping a cappella section as the piece builds toward the big finish. "Build Me Up Buttercup" - Think collegiate-style a cappella with a street corner, doo-wop twist! Great individual vocal lines layer to make this a full-sounding choral from start to finish. An excellent change of pace in any concert. Scat your way to success with this inventive vocal setting of the '70s favorite "Pick Up the Pieces", a soul classic by the Average White Band. "Your Smiling Face" - A show stopper, for sure! Arranged in a collegiate, street-corner a cappella-style, with a featured Tenor solo. A fantastic change of pace. Considered to be their farewell single, the 1983 ABBA hit "Thank You For The Music" gently grooves in this contemporary a cappella setting from Kirby Shaw. A great choice for smaller ensembles or concert groups. "Without a song or a dance, what are we?"

Songlist: Build Me Up, Buttercup, Pick Up the Pieces, Let Me Be There, Your Smiling Face, Thank You For The Music
