Laura's Pick
Stone Cold Crazy, Queen

2021 marks 50 years of Queen as a band! This fast tempo song is a favorite of mine from Queen. I love the contrast of this song to "Killer Queen" which was also a single off this same album. The high energy of "Stone Cold Crazy" makes it a fun song to return to time and time again.

Sam's Pick
Daft Punk (Choral Medley), Pentatonix (arr. Mark Brymer)

One of the most influential electronic acts of all time, French duo Daft Punk recently announced their retirement after nearly 30 years in the music industry. For choral ensembles out there, Pentatonix's clever 2013 medley of their hits—expertly arranged by Mark Brymer—might just be the perfect tribute to an iconic act.

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, The Police

Not a lot of The Police's songs feature piano, but this one definitely does. Released in 1981, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" has a fun piano part to play, and remains one of my favorite songs from my cover band's set list!

Bill's Pick
Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd

One of the most well-known songs from Pink Floyd, and written by the duo of Gilmour and Waters, "Wish You Were Here" showcases the band at the height of its career. Amazingly beautiful guitar work makes this an absolute-must for any rock guitarist's repertoire.

Various Titles, David Peacock

Great storytelling in film rarely goes unaccompanied by music. And it's no different with video games. If you want to mix up your piano repertoire with something fresh (yet still familiar), then check out David Peacock's piano arrangements of "White Palace" from Hollow Knight and "Fallen Down" from Undertale.

Annie's Pick
Tattooed Heart, Ariana Grande

After several customer requests for this song, we recently added a Piano/Vocal/Guitar arrangement of "Tattooed Heart" to our catalog. This is a fun, light-hearted song from Ariana Grande's first album Yours Truly, released in 2013. Written in a doo-wop style and in 12/8 time, this would be a great addition to your set list!
