Hi there!
I'm looking for music to fit the theme of Wizard of Oz. I've scoured the "Themes And Song Ideas To Fit Themes" sticky thread and didn't come up with much. The more creative the better! =D
This is for a complete recital, ages 5-13. This is what I plan to use so far...
Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Katherine McPhee
Somewhere Over the Rainbow remix . . .
Hand Clapping Song - Tropkillaz
Slide Some Oil to Me - Ne-yo
Lion - Saint Mesa
Yellow Brick Road - Xavi, XOVOX
Rule the Planet remix - DAnny Elfman (Planet of the Apes)
Low - Todrick Hall (severely edited, lol)
No Place Like Home/Home - Todrick Hall
Ease On Down the Road - Diana Ross & Michael Jackson

I still need, Munchkins, Glinda, Wicked Witch, Tornado, Crows, Trees, Poppies, Emerald City and any more you can think of that will fit the theme.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!

This sounds like a crazy suggestion, but "Power" or maybe "That Power" by Kanye West, for a hip-hop class. We saw a giant production last year, themed Wizard of Oz that used that song, and my son and I looked at each other and went "There's no logical reason this song fits into this story, and it's SO. AWESOME." This first line of the chorus is "No one man should have all that power", it's perfect for the man behind the curtain!

There are some "evil" songs from the Descendants that might work for the wicked witch. We did a Wizard of Oz production a couple years ago and used some of the Pentatonix medley "Wizard of Ahhs."
