Outifts are negotiable--either the uniforms or 40s suits. Lots of energy, but the super tight fast harmony is the most important.

Pouffy is good, too. Modest dresses all the same. Low heels.

A shirtwaist A-line dress would be best. Color doesn't really matter too much as long as it isn't something like hot pink which wasn't around back then. High heels. She used her hands to punctuate points.

Dark suits, light shirts, skinny ties, dark dress shoes. John had a distinctive way of standing and bouncing to the music.

She also wore a variety of clothing styles but again, at this point, fancy and elegant were more common.

The most important thing about this song is that Grace is pretty emotionless. All the power in this song comes from her voice, not her actions.

A casual hippie look would do. Sometimes he wore a jacket, sometimes a T-shirt. Bell bottoms and a flowery shirt would work. Boots would be good, or dark dress shoes. Typical hippie look--long hair, bell bottom jeans, wide belts, shirt with wide collar and a vest would be good, loud pattern or just a T-shirt--they kind of ran the gamut.

Casual yet sophisticated--jeans and a nice shirt, hippie style would be fine. Lindsay wore a large gold necklace most of the time. Big hair and a beard?

17. You've Got a FriendJames Taylor, Carole Kinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqAgSTV56a0&t=4shttps://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxMjI4/z/qPkAAOSwQXlcQ73K/$_1.JPGSawa Hashizumi, Conner ArbuckleAt 8:10 in the first video, you will see both Carole and James, although they do not sing You've Got a Friend. They do in the second video, but it is a couple decades later.The 3rd video is James Taylor at about the same time as the first video. So you will need to combine all of this because at least for right now, a 1971 video of them both singing isn't available. The picture of Carole King is the one she is probably best known for--jeans, peasant blouse, casual look. She favored loose dresses or tops with jeans, 60s style. Note that her hair is thick and wavy but not the permed style that she wore later. A collared denim shirt unbuttoned at the top and jeans would work for James Taylor. Long hair and a mustache would be great. Boots would work.

18. Love Shack1989B52shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o11abgxUxschttps://i.ytimg.com/vi/1dTO1ItuGPI/maxresdefault.jpgGrant Jackson, Fatima Arroyo, Marypaz ArroyoThe recording studio did wonders for this song. But that's ok--they were having fun! The lead singer is pretty high energy, and so is the redhead; the other lady is a little more sedate in both movement and attire. Matching the outfits exactly or the colors isn't important; it's the look, and the red outfit is too risque for a family show like ours, especially since some of the aufience is below the stage. Big hair was in. Big jewelry was in. Mini-skirts were in. So were long coats over them.

Very casual attire. T-shirt or raglan shirt, jeans, boots. Very intense. Try to imitate the accent. For the chorus members, we'd like to try student attire as in uniforms, or at least slacks/skirts, shirts/blouses, jackets, ties--they do not all need to match.

Very emotional. Her attire was creative, let us say, but feminine.Dresses, comfortable shoes, heavy eye make-up.

Women's suit with pants, simple top. Boots would be good, or heels. She worked the room. Oh, and BIG hair.

And shoes. Notice that the recitation builds to the chorus. Short hair, neat attire--jeans and a button-down shirt would be ok. Lead should be all black, chorus should be black and red or orange or yellow (like fire, of course.) Moved around the stage some but not too much.

She didn't have a distinct style, really; maybe more earth tones, perhaps a bit more country than preppie. But nothing like a favorite color or lace or neckline; just something casual.

All those nuances are very important. She tended toward a more country look, so jeans and boots would be appropriate, and a darker top.

They worked the crowd. Watch your movements, though; you won't be able to move off the mikes the way they seemed to. And there are usually tons of cables on the ground, so your choreography can't be as extensive. This is a fun song, though, so enjoy!
