I Only Want To Be With You


Made famous by Dusty Springfield, our arrangement of this timeless classic follows a very similar form and structure to the original hit, and is in the original key too. After the instantly recognisable intro, the vocal takes the first 12 measures, backed only by the rhythm section. The full band builds in layers for the next 12 measures, and on to the end of the first vocal chorus. The instrumental bridge is led by the reeds playing a funked-up expansion of the melody, backed by punchy brass, and the vocalist re-enters for the final chorus. We have written out the drum part in full, with all of the vital little licks and fills that kick the chart along. The brass ranges are moderate, with lead Trumpet only reaching A, and lead Trombone to G. There are no sax doubles. This chart is perfect for when you need to get dancers on the dance floor at any function gig. Just don't count it in too fast!
