Top of the Pops
Three weeks after our launch, I thought it would be interesting to see which arrangements are proving most popular.
So I had a look through the records for each of our founding arrangers to see which of their contributions are getting most attention.
And there are some interesting titles in the list.
Richard Salt has clearly caught the imagination of the Manilow fans with his tricky a cappella arrangement of Copacabana.
With its delicious harmonies and challenging syncopated ostinato parts, Richard’s twist on this pop classic is a clear favourite.
So is his spine-tingling arrangement of Kiss Me, originally performed by Sixpence None The Richer. To use Richard’s words, “scrunchy harmonies and dynamic changes make this a real audience pleaser.”
According to Craig, his arrangement of The Longest Time is close to the original, which is “basically an a capella song” written to be sung by “Billy and his mates while they cleaned up a warehouse.”
We’ve got more songs on the way, and will let you know as soon as they’re published on the site.
For now, which are your favourites among the list available so far? Please leave your comments below – I’d love to know what you think.
