Ramayana Songs: Mp3.s
When first learning the songs it is easiest to have a script handy to see who sings which parts of each song.
- GROUP SONGS THAT EVERYONE LEARNS ARE ALL CAPITALIZED and have two stars ** before them
- OPTIONAL GROUP SONGS ARE CAPITALIZED AND ITALICS
- All Other songs are sung by either leads or chosen chorus parts.
1)** THE RAMAYANA Cast: Human Narrators, Demon Narrators

This next song Love Just Makes Things Worse will be in the play if at least six students opt to take it on in their own time
16) Love Just Makes Things Worse Lakshmana and Gang (Deepak, Ganesh, Pratosh, and Narayan); Sumanthra; one line by Rama
These two songs are offered as bonuses. They are from the longer version of The Ramayana
17) Marry Me Fun song by Human Surpanakha
18) Then You'd Grow Tender Ballad w' orchestrations by Janaka to Sita
These next four tracks are the individual voices for We Will Go On from the last half of the song. We've added these because some students cast as leads for this song will find it easiest to practice from these recordings. We do recommend them striving to sing with the four-part version of We Will Go On as well to practice the timing of their entrances.
The first ~30-35 seconds of these are -not- in the theater club. Our parts start just after the line 'We'll find the strength to go on' near the middle.
