Twist, Shout, Dance, And Play With Yamaha MIDI Songs From The 1960's!

There is something so irresistably toe-tapping about American pop music from the 1960's. The record industry was booming, featuring in-house bands and songwriting teams churning out hit after hit for American pop radio! The careers of huge artists like Diana Ross, the Temptations, The Beatles, and the Isley Brothers were taking off thanks to songwriters like Smokey Robinson, Holland-Dozier-Holland, and Issac Hayes.

Looking back, it seems like musical possibility and exploration was so very new, and some very talented people paved the way for modern pop music.

This week, we are looking at a handful of songs that really make you want to move and shake! So have a look at the Yamaha MusicSoft shortlist of the best dance party songs from one of the most influencial decades of American Pop Music, all of which are available in the Yamaha Play Along MIDI format. Yamaha Play Along Songs function with the lesson and performance tools built into Yamaha MIDI keyboards to make it easy and fun to learn new songs and perform professionally!
