Children love this....have a listen
Thanks for these. Any ideas, anyone, for good 'pop' songs that go down well in assembly, singable, with a relevant kind of theme eg. environment, friends, getting on together, you know the sort of thing. Timeless tunes, rather than flash in pan!
Saltwater by Julian Lennon is lovely.
are you using Sing Up?
AIn't no Mountain, Make Someone Happy, Life is what you make it, I can see Clearly ... all great choices from there. Plus you can search for themes, links etc. Plenty of positive ethos songs.
Yes, that's the sort, thanks, Mr Bronson.
From a Distance
Both popular when I introduced them into assembly (Middle school)
Do you know the Voiceworks series?
It might be worth having a look. There is a book called Popular Voiceworks. Even if you don't want to buy the books you could have a look at the titles included in the books for ideas.
BTW in Voiceworks 1 there's a great arrangement of Saints Go Marching (I know this isn't pop, but I thought I'd mention it as it is a real favourite)
There's also Junior Voiceworks:
For instance mine liked Dreamer from Junior Voiceworks 1.
Have you tried any Pop Connections CDs? Fab. Samples on You Tube.
Again, this is a long time after the original post but I use several books by Fischy music. Build Up is particularly good and has given my schools some new favourites.
'Three little birds' and 'I can see clearly' are two of our school's favourites...although they have been a little to the death now. Their favourite praise song is 'Father God I wonder'
I know it's an old post but if anyone's still interested - Hall of Fame Will i am and The script. Really inspirational
