    If you had the skill/ knowledge, etc, to arrange any piece of music you wanted, what music would you arrange for brass band that hasn't been arranged already?

    I'd love to see an arrangement of 'It was a very good year' by Frank Sinatra, and 'I will talk and Hollywod will listen' by robbie Williams.

    I'd also arrange something stupid like the ketchup song or something because it would be hilarious, and would sound ridiculous!:tongue:

    "Bat out of Hell" or "Dead Ringer for Love".

    The latter could be set up as a duet :)

    Wasn't it part of your contract rehearsing the band to arrange these pieces? :rolleyes:

    Mika - Grace Kelly.

    Would be really groovy!

    Anything by Mika come to think of it. The basses would have some proper cheese to play!

    That will be shining bright Tom! To quote (or paraphrase) aformentioned Meatloaf:-

    "I would do anything for (Lochgelly) band..........
    BUT I WON'T DO THAT!" :biggrin:

    Oh yes - well I played that last year with a band and yes it had a great EEb bass line at the begining.

    Someone's already arranged it?

    There are people out there who really don't deserve the life that is given to them ;)

    Great idea! I love a bit of cheese, Mika's Lollipop would be even better!

    - be a devil ...& put it down to "experience"! ;)

    There's quite a few things I would like to see arranged for band, only if copyright permission could be given for them :mad:

    Nina Simone's Sinnerman - used in the Thomas Crown affair remake- with the clapping solo in the middle could be a great entertainment piece.

    I've always wondered how a Phantom of the Opera medley would sound if the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Iron Maiden versions were somehow fused......

    agree with you - it's really good.

    That would be fantastic!

    I actually thought of doing one but it would never get played lol!

    Frank Sinatra- Fly me to the Moon.

    What a great song and arrangement (I can just imagine the whole band lip-glissing in the middle)

    I would have it as a trom or flug solo

    Apart from a large sum of money to be paid directly into my bank account:tongue:

    I would like to arrange music from The Last of the Mohican's film (i'm sure someone will tell it's been done already!!) Some great music and would make an excellent to listen to, and quite technical piece methinks.

    Paul, that music you asked me to purchase last night...

    I got the order wrong.

    Ah well, our programme for Carnegie should be interesting. :)
