Staff Picks: January 2021

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. Each month, we're sharing some of the favorite songs we're currently playing and why we think you'll love them too.

Annie's Pick
The Place Where Lost Things Go (from Mary Poppins Returns), Emily Blunt

When I'm in the mood to play some Disney songs, "The Place Where Lost Things Go" from Mary Poppins Returns is now at the top of my list. The sentiment of the song is very simple and sweet, but there is so much depth to the actual music. Two of my favorite things, dissonance and suspensions, are sprinkled throughout.

Bill's Pick
You Never Give Me Your Money, The Beatles

From an incredible catalog of hits and taken from the iconic Abbey Road album, this has always been one of my favorite Beatles songs to play on the piano. Even better if you happen to have a musical partner handy who can take care of the arpeggiated guitar section.

Chris' Pick
Sogno di Volare ("The Dream of Flight") (Civilization VI Main Theme), Christopher Tin

If you are a gamer you know all about the Civilization series. Here is the theme for Sid Meier's Civilization VI. This is epic music scored for big chorus, full of drama and ready for the concert stage.

Will's Pick
Help Me Stranger, The Raconteurs

Having confounded some listeners with the adventurous "Boarding House Reach," Jack White returned to more familiar territory for the third Raconteurs album. The semi-titular single score is arranged here for Guitar Tab.

Dan's Pick
Wellerman, New Zealand Folksong

This traditional New Zealand whaling song from the 1900s has single-handedly brought sea shanties into mainstream pop culture, thanks to a new viral TikTok video. If you (like me) can't seem to get it out of your head, playing it yourself might just do the trick!

Sam's Pick
Someday We'll Know, New Radicals

Whilst New Radicals are considered a one-hit wonder by many courtesy of their huge 1998 hit "You Get What You Give," their second (and only other) single is a beautiful piano ballad which is a treat to play, even if you can't sing as high as Gregg Alexander.
