    I'll be performing at a large-ish charity gig at the end of next month (will post date once confirmed) - As I'm singing I've decided to do a medley of pop/rock/motown songs from the 60's and early 70's - after some deliberation with my musical accompanist I've made the following selections (will be performed in order). Would love to hear any thoughts good or bad on my choices =). I realize it's quite scattered but musically it works out really well thanks to my accompanist and I think they sort of flow into each other nicely too... The whole medley will last about half an hour.

    Part 1:

    To Sir with Love
    You've got a Friend
    All I have to do is dream
    Crying in the rain
    As tears go by
    There's a kind of hush
    A time for us
    Killing me softly with his song
    Close to you
    Don't go changing
    Leaving on a jetplane
    Sealed with a kiss
    Don't forget to remember me
    Ain't no sunshine
    Angel of the morning

    Outro/Intro to next part

    Part 2:

    Y.M.C.A
    Please Mr Postman
    Black is Black
    I love you (but the words won't come)
    San Francisco (Be sure to wear...)
    Yellow River
    Yesterday
    He's so fine (The Chiffons)
    If not for you
    Touch me in the morning
    Love will keep us together
    I can't stop loving you
    You're so vain

    Those are some great songs. I couldn't give an opinion because I don't know how you sing....you know....whether such and such is a good song for you or your style. But they are nice songs. I'm sure you picked ones that sound good to you. Best of luck. It sounds like a really nice thing to do. I've sung To Sir with Love for karaoke. (along with a few of the others) lol. It's a fun song to sing. You'll have to let us know how it all turns out.

    Pick the ones that fit your voice and your range, arrange them to fit YOU, and, above all, make sure at least half of them are songs you love and you'll have the perfect choices :)
