Song ideas needed for video

Recommended Posts

Here is a link to pick up one of my favorite collections of Scout Songs. They are sung by a male chorus from a Troop.

 

The tape I have is, "Hail all ye olde time campers."

The one I think would be great for your show is the one that was used in the movie "Follow Me Boys." There is a great rendition on this tape.

I'm planning to use several in our farewell dvd, including "Follow Me Boys," "Happy Trails," and this one from the Lion King:

 

 

"We Are One"

 

As you go through life you'll see

There is so much that we

Don't understand

 

And the only thing we know

Is things don't always go

The way we planned

 

But you'll see every day

That we'll never turn away

When it seems all your dreams come undone

 

We will stand by your side

Filled with hope and filled with pride

We are more than we are

We are one

 

If there's so much I must be

Can I still just be me

The way I am?

 

Can I trust in my own heart

Or am I just one part

Of some big plan?

 

Even those who are gone

Are with us as we go on

Your journey has only begun

 

Tears of pain, tears of joy

One thing nothing can destroy

Is our pride, deep inside

We are one

 

We are one, you and I

We are like the earth and sky

One family under the sun

 

All the wisdom to lead

All the courage that you need

You will find when you see

We are one

... oooh I forgot a couple more that I am putting into my 2nd son Webelos den dvd for the Pack:

 

Pomp and Circumstance (graduation) and You've Got a Friend in Me (from Toys Story) also ... there are one or two that's great from Monster, Inc.

 

You've Got A Friend In Me Lyrics (Randy Newman)

 

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

When the road looks rough ahead

And you're miles and miles

From your nice warm bed

Just remember what your old pal said

Boy, you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

You've got troubles, well I've got 'em too

There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you

We stick together and we see it through

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

 

Some other folks might be

A little bit smarter than I am

Bigger and stronger too

Maybe

But none of them will ever love you the way I do

It's me and you

And as the years go by

Boys, our friendship will never die

You're gonna see

It's our destiny

You've got a friend in me

Yesterday a child came out to wonder

Caught a dragonfly inside a jar

Fearful when the sky was full of thunder

And tearful at the falling of a star

Then the child moved ten times round the seasons

Skated over ten clear frozen streams

Words like, when youre older, must appease him

And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go round and round

And the painted ponies go up and dawn

Were captive on the carousel of time

We cant return we con only look behind

From where we came

And go round and round and round

In the circle game.

 

The Circle Game.....

This is good ... now you all helped me put together our DVD as well. dedejonge, as the last part of our Troop's summer camp DVD, I made a tribute to the adult leaders who helped us at summer camp and I used Mariah Carey's "Hero." It brough tears and folks were getting choked up, especially when a picture of one of our assist scoutmasters was bandaging up of the scout came up and the second verse came on ... it was beautifully matched! I think that I will do the same for our Webelos' DVD as well.

 

Cheers and good luck,

Mariah Carey - Hero

 

There's a hero

If you look inside your heart

You don't have to be afraid

Of what you are

There's an answer

If you reach into your soul

And the sorrow that you know

Will melt away

 

[Chorus:]

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

 

It's a long road

When you face the world alone

No one reaches out a hand

For you to hold

You can find love

If you search within yourself

And the emptiness you felt

Will disappear

 

[Chorus]

 

Lord knows

Dreams are hard to follow

But don't let anyone

Tear them away

Hold on

There will be tomorrow

In time

You'll find the way

A good centimental song to use I think is Israel K (don't ask me please to spell his last name) version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" its been used in many popular shows and movies lately and TV commercials...most notably 50 First Dates, and the episode of ER where Dr.Greene died a few years ago. Its a very moving version of the song with a Ukelele.

 

Others songs I use in scout slide shows are:

 

Road to Perdition Soundtrack

Photograph by Nickelback

Someday by Nickelback (say the word "hell" but our camp chaplin only raised an eyebrow at it)

Time of Your Life by Greenday

Stand by Me by Ben King

Lean on Me

With a Little Help from my Friends by the Beatles

Obladi Oblada by the Beatles

 

Just a few suggestions

So in putting together our Webelos 2 dvd, I found some more songs that are great:

 

(Fox And The Hound)

Best Of Friends Lyrics

 

When you're the best of friends

Having so much fun together

You're not even aware, you're such a funny pair

You're the best of friends

 

Life's a happy game

You could clown around forever

Neither one of you sees, your natural boundaries

Life's one happy game

 

If only the world wouldn't get in the way

If only people would just let you play

They say you're both being fools

You're breaking all the rules

They can't understand, the magic of your wonderland

Hu-hu-hu

 

When you're the best of friends

Sharing all that you discover

When that moment has past, will that friendship last?

Who can say? There's a way!

Oh I hope... I hope it never ends

'Cause you're the best of friends

 

Also, ... "Wishing Upon a Star" ... Disney's songs have the most appropriate lyrics.
