Music To Accompany Slide Show


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I think this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find the thread.

 

Has anyone got any ideas of music to accompany a slide show of photos of the work we have done during the year? It would form part of our 'Reception's Got Talent' performance to parents in a few weeks.

 

Thanks, Carrots

Hi last week i did a similar slide show for the parents using all the photos collected over the year. I used the Annie Lennox song "My Universal Child". It is a truely beautiful song and there wasnt a dry eye left in the hall at the end of the slideshow. Hope this helps :o

What have you done today to make you feel proud - Heather Small

Simply the Best - Tina Turner

What a Beautiful World - Nat King Cole (I think)

My Way - Frank Sinatra

Somewhere Over the Rainbow - not the version by Judy Garland but by a chap; think he's from New Zealand, I'll try to find his name and get back to you

 

Hope these help a little!

I always think 'Never Forget' by Take That is always a good one...

 

We've come so far, reached so high...and we're still so young... etc etc.

 

Always makes me a bit emotional!!

 

Oh, and 'I get by with a little help from my friends' - a bit jollier and lovely when looking at pics of the children working together x

Thanks for your suggestions! We were planning to go with Proud by Heather Small, but 'I get by with a liitle help...' is now making me think of changing it!

We did 'Proud' last year and it was a great accompaniment - really uplifting. We have done 'What a wonderful world' by Israel Kamakawiwoole and it made lots of people get very emotional.

 

This year thinking about Elbow track - can't remember name - olympic bid number but using instrumental version. Also thinking of Joe Hisaishi, 'Summer' or Giovanni Allevi, 'Back to life' or maybe Yiruma, 'River flows in you' all really beautiful tracks.

 

Any more ideas anyone? I love searching about for the 'perfect' match.

I cheat - run the slideshow and press 'play' on the CD player at the same time! There is a way to add music to the slideshow, but I haven't worked that out yet!
