Deke Sharon : Pop Classics for Female Voices

"Feel the Earth Move" is one of rock's most iconic women's songs (from Carole King's Tapestry), this pulsing, rhythmic arrangement incorporates elements of doo-wop and contemporary a cappella beneath a barn-burning solo. Vocal or other percussion optional. The Beatles greatest modern folk/pop song "Blackbird" is finally available for SSA groups, with the melody moving between vocal parts and interspersed elements of counterpoint and 3-part harmony. The number #1 song from the Footloose soundtrack "Holding Out For A Hero", sung by Bonnie Tyler, was one of the biggest songs of the 1980s. Bombastic and fun, it's a great feature for a female soloist, and makes a great show closer or encore. he Andrew Sisters had a hit in 1947 with the lighthearted, playful ditty "Too Fat Polka" that's more relevant now than ever!

Songlist: Holding Out For A Hero, Too Fat Polka, I Feel The Earth Move, Blackbird

The Andrews Sisters : Hidden Gems

It's 1943 and the war news on the radio isn't great, so you fiddle with the dial on the huge RCA Victor radio, and there are the Andrews Sisters, singing "I'm Getting Corns for My Country," a song about the painful joys of dancing at the USO. You chuckle and start tapping your feet, and think that a country that could produce a group like the plucky Sisters might win this war after all. "Now Is The Time" is a rare, 2-CD for the price of one collection of Andrews Sisters classics, many of which have not been heard since the end of the war. There are 23 songs, not in total but on each CD! Joining the Sisters are stars like Carmen Miranda on two Samba songs, Danny Kaye on three songs, Bing Crosby on two songs, Burl Ives, Nat King Cole, Dick Hayme, Ernest Tubb and Dan Dailey. All songs are swing band accompanied. Picking favorites isn't easy - all the songs are hip, swinging, and funny and/or poignant: "The Turntable Song," "The Wedding Samba," "He Rides The Range For Republic," "Gimme Some Skin, My Friend," "Choo'n Gum," "Amelia Cordelia McHugh-McWho?" and "Big Brass Band from Brazil" with Danny Kaye, and "Too Fat Polka." Of course you've heard "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar" on all the other Andrews recordings, but have you heard "Bounce Me Brother With A Solid Four?" If you love the AS, swing music, American history or musical humor, this CD is for you!
