Staff Picks: February 2020

February Staff Picks 2020

Our Sheet Music Direct team plays, strums and sings just as much as you do! We’re a team of musicians who love music of various styles and, when we're not busy with all things Sheet Music Direct, play at home, church, and gigs.

With that, we’d like to introduce Staff Picks. Each month, we'll share some of the favorite songs we're currently playing and why we think you'll love them too. Check out our latest staff picks below or head over to our Staff Picks page which we updated regularly with the latest picks.

Find something you love? Let us know in the comments, or share it with the rest of the Sheet Music Direct community over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Annie's Pick
Lose You to Love Me, Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez's first Billboard Hot 100 number one single from her recent album Rare is a beautiful lyrics-focused piano ballad. Among the co-writing credits is fellow pop star and friend Julia Michaels.

Becca's Pick
Right Now, Van Halen

Combining Sammy Hagar's vocals and Eddie Van Halen's keyboard riff, this song has been deemed one of Van Halen's more adventurous pieces, and is a fun challenge to master on the keys.

Chris' Pick
Return to the Heart, David Lanz

Before there was Yiruma, there was David Lanz. A Grammy-nominated pianist and prolific New Age composer, David Lanz's "Return to the Heart" is a beautiful solo piano piece every pianist should know. A great fit for wedding ceremonies.

Dan's Pick
Toss a Coin to Your Witcher, Joey Batey

This catchy tune comes from the popular new Netflix series The Witcher. Written by composers Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli, "Toss a Coin to Your Witcher" tells of the adventures between the main character Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and a humble bard named Jaskier (Joey Batey). It's one of the standout songs from the show and a fun one to play – even if you don't play the lute!

Sam's Pick
Slide, James Bay

Best known for his 2014 single "Hold Back the River," English singer-songwriter James Bay released his second studio album Electric Light in 2018. Bay puts down his guitar for "Slide" which is a moving gospel-tinged piano & vocal ballad. The song closes with the recital of an Allen Ginsberg poem underpinned by a serene piano outro. A lesser-known gem well worth learning!

Will's Pick
Black Math, The White Stripes

Stand well back, for the fireworks are about to go off. This is incendiary garage/blues rock from the ragged outset, through the soaring solo to the stuttering coda. Detroit's favorite son and his "sister" were rarely in finer form.
