    Okay, so I'm (re)doing my OCR AS level music coursework. I'm doing an arrangement as I'm dire at composition...

    I've decided to do a jazz arrangement as I've applied to a music course with a jazz specialism type thing...

    My problem is that I can't think of a song to do a jazz arrangement of...

    I want to do it in the style of Mark Ronson.

    Another problem is that I need to supply a lead sheet of the song I choose...

    (I'd have probably chosen by now if it wasn't for that)

    So if you have a suggestion to make please give a link to where I can buy the lead sheet for the said song.

    Or chose a lead sheet off of here...

    Thanks

    Do you mean you have to "jazzyfy" a normal song? or use an existing jazz song?

    For the latter, Autumn leaves is a classic. Or go mad and do take 5

    Sorry I should've specified more clearly.

    I want to jazzyfy a popular song Like Mark Ronson did with Radiohead and Coldplay songs...

    A lead sheet is basically a piece of paper with the melody line notated with the chords and lyrics as well. See my first post and click the link and see what lead sheets are available on that website

    It's compulsory to supply a lead sheet as part of the coursework task. Else I'd have finished this goddamn thing by now.

    Hmm, I don't see an awful lot of scope in that one...
