Dreamin’ as sung by The Cascades
I wrote this arrangement by request from Ken Powers – who is an accordionist and an original member of the singing group – The Cascades!!! He also has created a fantastic backtrack for this – that I wrote the arrangement to match (Key of D to E). You too can create a backtrack – go to http://www.karaoke-version.com/custombackingtrack – Search for the song you want – change to the key (in this case D) and play with the dials to raise or lower the volume of the vocals, backup singers, bass, etc.
To keep the level down a bit – I also created an arrangement (Key C to D). If you ignore the double voicing – play top note only – this should be a level 2.5.
