Looking for good songs for a new jazz warm up cd the use after the christmas break. Any ideas?
I'm waiting to hear this too. I really need some updating in the music dept.!
chirp chirp.... i can hear crickets
really doesnt matter any age..
I don't know if any of these will work for you, but I thought I'd toss them out. I have a subscription to Rhapsody, and they have a channel called Party Kids. I update that frequently, just to see what's on there, and these are a few songs I've pulled to use for various classes:
"Like Whoa" - Aly and A. J.
"One in a Million" - Herman Kenin
"Walking on Sunshine" - Jennifer Lopez
"I Turn to You" - Melanie C
"Larger than Life" - Backstreet Boys
"Say it Again" - Melanie Digby
"I'll do Anything" - The Naked Brothers Band
"(Hey You) Free Up Your Mind" - Emma Bunton
"Here We Go" - NSYNC
"You Gotta Be" - Des'ree
"Party Up" - Hillary Duff
"Give A Little Love" - Ziggy Marley
"Good Times" - Slumber Party Girls
"It's Not Just Make Believe" - Anne Hathaway
"Step by Step" - New Kids on the Block
"California Sun" - Brett Anderson
"School's Out for Summer" - yoomii (ok - that's to use later in the year! :) )
"Volcano" and "Party, Party, Party" - Madagascar Soundtrack
Yep, most of these are for younger kids, and a lot of them are old tunes - but hey, they're probably new to the 8-10 year olds! I love my Rhapsody!
Couldn't agree more Shannon. My teens are the same. I like the good old hits of the
80's? There were some great hits and descent lyrics too.
I hate having to skip a song part way through due to explicits.
Most of my songs are old classics and not top 40. I let my hip hop / funk teacher take care of the cool stuff. Hey, maybe that's why her classes are larger than mine.
Whip My Hair- WIllow
Who's that Chick
We no Speak Americano
Monster- Michael Jackson and 50 cent
Blame it on the Boogie- Jackson 5
These are all fun and keep the class going!
