You Can Get It If You Really Want – Backing TrackView Ed Aldcroft's Full Store
An uplifting rocksteady classic from Jimmy Cliff and a nice easy one for singers to get under their belt. Lots of repetition, so it’s a great choice for the beginning of a term to build energy and confidence.
Watch out for a slightly unusual scale in the middle section (“if___ you___ want___, you can get it”). You may wish to work that into a warm-up activity to get less confident singers feeling more secure with both the syncopation and the notes.
This song definitely benefits from a bit of added rhythm – a simple tambourine would do it! The accompaniment could be keyboard or guitar, or alternatively you could download the simple backing track provided here, available as a single licence.
