SD348 - On My Way

SD348 On My Way


From the 2003 Disney animated feature, Brother Bear, comes this happy song written and performed by Phil Collins. Though never released as a single, the song is featured prominently in the movie as the bear cub Koda joyfully sings about going to new places, meeting new friends, and sleeping under the stars. While the voice actor for Koda, Jeremy Suarez, sings the tune initially, it’s also sung by Phil Collins later on in the film. Pat Carnathan played the keyboard parts on this singing call and Jim MacDonald performed some truly amazing guitar work. During the closer, Mike Haworth plays banjo. The always-wonderful Hunter Keller sang the lead for us on this tune.

SD346 Pink Cadillac


Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 classic was released as the B-side of the “Dancing in the Dark” record. Though it stayed on the charts for 14 weeks and peaked at #27, the song is a staple of The Boss’ concerts and one of the most frequently requested tunes. This singing call is based on the cover by the band Southern Pacific and it combines the straight-ahead rock of the original with a little bit of southern rock. Pat Carnathan arranged the tune and lent his keyboard skills while Jim MacDonald played several guitar parts and Ty Barnes played the drums. The singing call comes with a music track as well as a second track featuring amazing backup vocals by Mike Haworth, Shauna Kaaria and Vic Kaaria.

SD345 I Love A Rainy Night


Eddie Rabbitt, Even Stevens and David Malloy wrote this song and it was featured on Rabbitt’s 1980 album, Horizons. Eddie Rabbitt died in 1998, but this song, speaking of a man’s fondness for a rainy evening and the promise of a new, sunny day is an enduring favorite. Not only reaching the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles, it succeeded Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Songs. This was the last time back-to-back country songs reached the #1 spot on this chart. The tune was Rabbitt’s eighth of seventeen chart-topping tunes. The singing call was arranged by Pat Carnathan and was a staple of the Shakedown Band. Pat played keyboards, Jim MacDonald played guitars and Ty Barnes played drums. You’ll hear luscious harmonies from Vic Kaaria and Mike Haworth and you’ll receive the instrumental track both with harmonies and without harmonies.
