Katy Perry, Lady Gaga & Movie Themes from Peter Baartmans: The Latest Yamaha MIDI Songs

In addition to recent worldwide hits from Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, the new MIDI songs released this week also include a number of treats from the European charts. Also coming from Europe are four new files from Dutch Yamaha keyboardist extraordinaire, Peter Baartmans. Peter shows off his skills in many of Yamaha's online videos and demonstrations, but as you can tell from the movie themed selections we've just released, he's also a master at producing beautiful MIDI songs.

California Gurls - Katy Perry

One of the biggest hits of the 2010 so far, "California Gurls" has the perfect sound for summer. And even if the weather is starting to cool off where you are, loading up this song is a surefire way to conjure up a warm California vibe in any performance.

My Heart Will Go On (Instrumental) - Peter Baartmans

The Godfather Theme - Peter Baartmans

This week we're happy to present four new MIDI files containing original arrangements from Yamaha's premier keyboard expert, Peter Baartmans. A world class pianist, Baartmans is also excellent with the finer, more technical aspects of Yamaha's keyboards. With these skills combined, he's able to produce great files that, while still giving you all the flexibility that MIDI, also maintain a sense of live performance. The new files he's produced all have a movie centered theme, and include two medleys ("Grease" and "Pirates of the Carribean") and two classic movie themes, "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic, originally sung by Celine Dion, and "The Godfather Theme" (also known as "Speak Softly Love").

Everybody Loves Somebody - Dean Martin

Playing or singing along with Dean Martin's signature song will really take you back to the days of the Rat Pack. It's been covered and recorded by many of the greatest singers of the past 50 years, and with this file and your keyboard you've got everything you need to create your own memorable rendition of this timeless ballad.

Dancing on My Own - Robyn

This tune from one of Scandinavia's biggest pop stars has already taken dance floors across the world by storm - it'll make a believer out of your keyboard as well. A perfect addition to any dance party set-list.

Keep reading for even more new songs, including hits from Lady Gaga and Cher, as well as tons of recent European chart toppers from Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina and more.
