My favorite tap songs are:
Popcorn
Trashin the Camp
There Is (Boxcar Racers)
The Bare Necesities
Tubthumping
I Just Can't Wait To Be King

Im also looking for a tap song that is mostly made up of drums. Preferably with no words. Does anyone have an idea?
Thanks

Need a good strong tap song for a 9 year old that already mastered some of the greatest tap music. Preferably very conservative. Any ideas??

All these are great suggestions, from this sticky i have gotten a great selection of tap music together for the next competition season and recital season. But, i was wondering if there was anyone that had good warmup music, for going down the floor and center work during tap. I find myself using the same music, because i love the beat in it, i was wondering if anyone had some good music suggestions if possible. Thank you for your time.

Once I saw a tap routine to "Ants Marching" by the Dave Matthews Band and it was AMAZING!
