Pure Imagination

Here is my arrangement of “Pure Imagination” written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley specifically for the classic, 1971 major motion picture Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I’ve also included a lead sheet featuring my arrangement, which can be viewed and downloaded by clicking the featured link below.

I recently heard Jamie Cullum’s version and was inspired to create my own. It’s similar in that its the Jazz vein, but has more of an RnB flavor in the vocal.

Lyrics:
Come with me
And you’ll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you’ll see
Into your imagination

We’ll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we’ll see
Will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want just do it
Wanna change the world?
There’s nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
That compares with
Pure imagination
Living there
You’ll be free
If you truly wish to be

Hold On We’re Going Home

Original Artist: Drake
Here is my cover of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Goin Home”. It didn’t take long for me to become addicted to this song. I think Drake has a real talent for writing melodies. Drake’s version is in the key of B minor, but I transposed it to G minor for my voice.

Lead Sheet (B minor):
Hold On We’re Goin Home (Bmin – original)

Lead Sheet (G minor):
Hold On We’re Goin Home (Gmin)
