Learn & Perform Songs from David Bowie, Tina Turner and More With New MIDIs

Songs from music legends David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Tina Turner await in the most recent MIDI files added to our catalogs on Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection. The latest releases also include hit songs and classics from Europe, such as Loona's "Bailando" and the new cover of Inner Circle's "Sweat" by Mark Medlock and Mehrzad Marashi. With all of these new releases, it's the perfect time to find new ways to enjoy your favorite songs on your keyboard.

The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson

One of Michael Jackson's most memorable love songs, "The Way You Make Me Feel" features an irrepressible 80s R&B beat, classic call and response vocals and, of course, plenty of the pop magic that makes all of Michael's songs uniquely his. Any collection of Jackson's tunes certainly isn't complete without this one.

All the Lovers - Kylie Minogue

"All the Lovers" has all the breezy melodies and dance-pop brilliance you'd expect from a Kylie Minogue song. While just loading this MIDI on your keyboard is certain to get the crowd moving, it's equally suited to a more private singalong session.

Young Americans - David Bowie

Showing his more soulful side, "Young Americans" was David Bowie's first foray into American R&B music. The prominent horns and saxophone fit in right alongside Bowie's dramatic vocals, and there's also a great piano part to play along with, if you're inclined to use this MIDI for performance.

Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner

Creedence Clearwater Revival had a hit with "Proud Mary" as a chugging blues song in 1969. Don't let the laid back preview fool you though - this MIDI file covers the hard driving version of the song that Tina and Ike Turner produced a few years later. In the Turner's hands, "Proud Mary" became a rock classic that you can now relive in all its glory on your Yamaha keyboard.

On the Beach - Chris Rea

A smooth guitar line, and a longing vocal melody make "On the Beach" an ideal song to soundtrack a wistful summer evening.
