None of our warmups are an actual tune – but several of them are based on the chords and the feel of originals. Here are some of the tunes which inspired the warmups.
No. 4, "Tiger-like", sounds a bit like ❗"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
And No. 6, "Let's Dance", borrows ideas from ❗David Bowie's "Let's Dance"
No. 10, "70s Disco", has something in common with ❗"Love's Unkind" by Donna Summer, the Queen of Disco
No. 12, "Empire Rock", is a close relative of ❗"The Imperial March" by John Williams. Here you can see Williams conducting a top symphony orchestra – check out their brass playing!
1. Sorry but you probably can't (easily) play along with these ones – they are (mostly) in different keys.
2. These performances all open in a new window or tab.
