Deke Sharon : Pop Classics

"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
