  1. The Big Time version I think of first is Linda Eder... I almost danced to it last year!

  2. Hey Abby! My song "We're Gonna Party" is really popular in "competitive dance world." It's performed by The Weather Girls. Hope that helps!

  3. Bumble Boogie is a 1946 swing arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumble Bee" by Jack Fina

  4. Hi there Abby. My talent song "Faraway" is by Goldrich & Heisler. They wrote such songs as, "Taylor the Latte Boy" made popular by Kristin Chenoweth, and "Alto's Lament." :-)

  5. Thank you all; I'll update the post with your info soon! Meggie, I figured yours had a musical theatre connection. :)


  6. Hi there! My song is "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles. Hope that helps!!
