Can't find a song? Think classic!

 

All the time, we hear students say, "I can't find anything to sing," or "I'm running out of ideas," or "I can't sing any of the songs by [insert favorite artist]."  So here is a list of classic songs you may not have ever heard of (or have forgotten about), but are songs every singer should know how to sing!  Reach back a decade or two and maybe one of these songs will fit you perfectly.  Or take on a creative challenge and re-invent the song and make it your own!
