Here's a choice selection of MIDI files for your enjoyment.  For this page I have concentrated on some of my favourite songs, with particular attention given to compositions that I believe are under-represented elsewhere.  To my knowledge, the files available from this site are public domain.  If you see anything here that you own copyright to, please let me know if you would like to be credited or if you want the file removed.  I will honour any such requests within 48 hours.  Let's not get the law involved.  It is not my intention to violate intellectual properly rights.  One hand washes the other etc.  Also please inform me if you have any problems downloading.

If you have a MIDI-player plug-in installed, you will need to either hold down the SHIFT key while clicking the title, or right-click on the title and select "Save link as..." to save these files to disk.

Finally, if you have any requests, let me know!  I have many more songs by these and many other artists, and will add to this page occasionally.

The Byrds -
Unfortunately they lost the plot towards the end of their career, the effect of which was a) The aquisition of a Moog  Synthesizer, b) The release of a country album, and c) A tour of the then-apartheid state of South Africa, but this track is an example of their superb earlier work.

Electric Light Orchestra  -
Yes, I know, but some people like them...myself included!  Come on, when they weren't being suffocated by their own pomposity, they could actually write some brilliant songs.  And Billy Corgan likes them.

Lightning Seeds -
If you haven't heard of The Lightning Seeds, they write stratospheric pop songs heavily influenced by The Beatles and The Kinks.  I would suggest that anyone wanting to get into their music should hear their 1997 album "Dizzy Heights" first.
  The Life of Riley

  House of Fun
  Our House
  It Must Be Love

The Rutles -
An hilarious Beatles spoof band.  Their original album is hard to come by, but their 1996 album "Archaeology" is more common.  There's a tragic story of corporate greed behind this band - I may tell you about it later.
   Between Us
   Cheese and Onions
    Hold My Hand

Simon and Garfunkel

Probably my favourite band of all time (note my e-mail address!), and I can highly recommend their most recent album, "Apple Venus Vol 1".
