Almost all of Tom's arrangements are available in men's and women's voicings.

Select first letter of a song you are looking for:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U W X Y Z 


A

  • AC-CENT-TCHU-ATE THE POSITIVE Brothers and sisters, are you ready to eliminate the negative? Then just latch on to this lively tune and help spread the word!
  • ACROSS THE ALLEY FROM THE ALAMO This song is so much fun that it almost even makes sense. Think fondly of the Mills Brothers when you sing this one.
  • AFRICA most powerful piece, this popular hit by Toto is sure to thrill your audiences. Probably more suitable to chorus than quartet. Be sure to check out Perpetuum Jazzile's version on YouTube and consider adding their stormy sound effects to your performance.
  • AFTER DARK Power Play sings this lively update of the classic barbershop favorite.
  • AFTER THE BALL a classic with a new verse, deceptively strong sentiment
  • AGING SUPERHEROES MEDLEY Did you ever wish your quartet consisted of Superman, Batman, Spider-Man and, well... Mighty Mouse? Your wish can be granted with this clever batch of parodies.
  • ALABAMA JUBILEE lively uptune with a Dixie feel
  • ALABAMA MEDLEY This collaboration with Ed Waesche pairs "Open Your Arms, My Alabamy" and "Alabama Jubilee." The medley happily gathers energy as it goes along. Great for groups who naturally sing downbeat songs better than swing tunes.
  • ALASKA MEDLEY You don't have to be from the largest state to love this combination of "Where We Live" and "Alaska, I'm Comin' Home."
  • ALL ABOARD FOR SLUMBERLAND great toy-costume package idea to go with "The Little Boy"
  • ALL ALONE (BERLIN) One of the best barbershop ballads of all time, this song was written in 1924 by the great Irving Berlin.
  • ALL ALONE! (VON TILZER) cute come-hither uptune, fine for women and men too
  • ALL DRESSED UP WITH A BROKEN HEART melancholy, powerful ballad
  • ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM Everly Brothers hit, fancier than Harmony Explosion arrangement
  • ALL THAT SHE WANTS rock hit by Swedish group Ace of Base, not for the faint of heart
  • ALL THE WAY This wonderfully intense ballad is great for contest. Flipside first sang it in most heartfelt fashion. Now top women's groups such as MAXX Factor and Gem City have taken this song to a new level.
  • ALONG CAME JONES Ray Stevens sang this spoofy melodramatic song. Even a sedate group will be funny when performing this piece.
  • ALONG THE ROAD TO GUNDAGAI popular Aussie tune
  • AMERICA (WEST SIDE STORY) lively, great choreography possibilities
  • AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL a classic patriotic song
  • AMERICAN HYMN, AN This is a soaring, gorgeous song about the natural beauties of America, as sung by the Vocal Majority.

  • ANOTHER OP'NIN', ANOTHER SHOW good show opener, Broadway standard
  • ANYTHING YOU CAN DO an eight-part song from "Annie Get Your Gun" that is a sure hit for a combined number with a chorus or quartet of the opposite sex. Can you guess who wins in the end? Also available in eight-part male and female versions.
  • ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT This song from the King works well for both princes and princesses. Give your audiences the royal treatment by singing them this heartfelt ballad.

  • BLEW BY YOU This parody is quite clever. What blew by you? The singers' toupee!

C

  • CALENDAR GIRL Neil Sedaka wrote and sang this most fun tune. Now it available for your group to sing in contest, even!

  • ENTER SANDMAN A tough one to explain, this Metallica hit was goofed on by a lounge-lizardy singer who calls himself Richard Cheese. The arranger further degraded the piece, resulting in a delightful, and contestable, abomination.
  • ENTERTAINER, THE good show opener, theme song of movie "The Sting"
  • EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ROSES Broadway-type show opener

F

  • FA-LA-LA These lyrics from "Deck the Hall" are transplanted onto various other pieces, resulting in much good cheer.
  • FABRICATING FRANKIE MEDLEY No, we are not talking about Mr. Sinatra here. Rather, this is about a certain monster that was created by a mad scientist with a German-sounding name. A really fine chorus plans to perform this medley, um. . . before too long, but you can try it after they have disassembled it. Pair it with the "Dancing Frankie Medley."
  • FEED THE BIRDS One of the loveliest pieces you will ever hear, this song has a message that reaches well beyond the avian kingdom. Pairs very well with the "Mary Poppins Medley."
