    In addition to those, "Hang on Sloopy", "We are the Champions", and "I Can't Turn You Loose".

    And I thought I'd sound eclectic by mentioning "The Horse." It gets my recommendation too. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who's blown out their chops trying to play high on that song.

    I also recommend early Chicago stuff. . . like 25 or 6 to 4. And I'll throw in a vote for Sunshine of Your Love.

    Personal opinion here, but Sir Duke tops my list of songs "better off if never written." The Entertainer is number two.

    Leave Georgia on my Mind to the pros lol...if you know her Carrol Whidden is a amazing writer. Contact her through Stylemarchers.org and she'll cook something up for you.
    Ummmm....Nashville Tubas is a great song...Bone Crusher gets the crowds roaring too.

    I like the early Chicago stuff too, as well as "When the Saints...", "Waltzing Matilda (Cowan's arr.)" just for that Aussie flavour, and maybe "Our Director" or "Liberty Bell". Souza would have to be a good bet for Marching Band - or is that as bit obvious?

    We played a song called "Carneby Street." Anybody know how to spell it?

    Get it on gets my vote.

    you can always look at arrangers publishing company. they only do marching/pep band music. they arrange famous songs for band. you can find any style you want and order for a full band or some are arranged for smaller bands.
