Enjoy the first edition of Sheet Music Direct Staff Picks.
Arthur’s Theme - Christopher Cross
"This movie theme song from the film Arthur won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981. This is one of my favorite movie/tv theme songs to play on piano."
Berlin Song - Ludovico Einaudi
"Not many traditional composers have managed to cross over into 'popular' music the way that Ludovico Einaudi has, and with his ability to produce the sort of simple but beautiful melodies you hear in 'Berlin Song', it's easy to see why."
Jump - Van Halen
"Many consider this song to be one of the greatest keyboard rock songs of all time. Featuring Eddie Van Halen on keyboard, “Jump” is definitely one of my all-time favorites to play with my cover band, solely because of the great keyboard solo."
Just - Radiohead
"Towering builds, a punchy chorus and off-the-neck string bends make this 1995 Radiohead single a stone cold classic."
Isaac C.Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles
"The intro is unmistakable and the switch between 3/4 and 4/4 time reinforces the idea that you're being taken to a magical place."
