On the Side of Me by Corrinne May

March 11th, 2008 by Ah Doe

I recalled that I just got to know Corrinne May through newspaper last year, and I’ve blogged about her during last year’s September at AhDoe.com.

Compared to Beyonce, Madonna, Black Eyed Peas who constantly dominate the hits radio from morning to night (Frankly speaking, their songs have been so popular that they appeared in countless type of Remix versions till now!), Corrinne May is not so lucky. Perhaps Light and Easy audience tend to have greater chances of listening to her in air.

After arranging so many musical scores and posting them to my blog, I’ve received emails and requests for Corrinne May’s piano sheets.

Not that I don’t like her. In fact, I really think that she is a very talented singer and music writer who deserves our recognition and support. Just that her songs rarely appear in radio stations or televisions.

Just few days ago, I began my work immediately once I received the source, and this is what I have today! (Clap clap~)

Corrinne May’s On the Side of Me Piano Sheet Preview

Some remarkable attempts during the creation of this piano sheet that I would like to share with you all:

1) My first piano sheet that separates piano accompaniment and main melody.

2) The most complete version in history that includes lyrics, guitar chords, main melody and accompaniment. Previous versions do not offer such clear distinguishment.

3) Usually piano sheets come together with brief introduction of album and singer. This is an exception. Introduction first, then piano sheet and, it took me 6 months to get the source after listening to the song.

4) A hell lot of imperfect chords that make the creation tougher.


Dear desperate piano players who yearned for this piano sheet, please download this precious On the Side of Me piano sheet in PDF version for free here.

Again, last reminder: Song is in original key, A Major. One of my favourite key due to the cheer you can feel in it!

    hi there! ^_^
    nice blog!
    anwyay, do u happen to have the songsheet for “The Birthday Song”?

  4. Ah Doe Says:

    Moo Moo and Girl Girl,

    First of all, I have not watched this movie yet. And secondly, I don’t “own” piano sheets as collection. Instead, if there are some requests from my readers, I will try to arrange the music scores and put them up here.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll look into this anyway!

    hey! thanks for the on the side of me sheet music. you’re a great transposer! have you tried transposing love song for #1 sheet music btw? =P

  9. Ah Doe Says:

    Hi Anne,

    You’ve flattered me! *Blush*

    I have also received several requests for her other songs. Patient, patient, one by one. Haha…

  10. Tia Says:

    I was asked last minute to sing at a friend’s 50th Birthday party which is tomorrow night – May 16!!! I was browsing for songs and came across this Corinne May, The Birthday Song. I have been searching for days for an accompaniment track or guitar chords, without success. I came across your site and saw that you received mail back in May with requests for this piano sheet. By chance, do you have it completed? I think I could work up the song even if I only received it by tomorrow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  11. Ah Doe Says:

    Oh Dear,

    Today is already 16th May!

    The fact is, I still can’t find the source of this song, whether in MP3 or Audio format. This is very important to transcribe the songs into sheet music.

    I wonder if it is still late to offer you any help at this moment, but you can still drop me emails and preferably, attach the MP3 of this song and I’ll see what I can do with it.

  12. Christine Says:

    Hi! I actually stumbled upon this site while looking for Corrinne May sheet music – specifically, her song titled “Free”. If you ever have free time, you should try transposing that song! It’s very pretty. No rush though, and I can’t wait to see what other songs of hers you’ve transposed! =)

  13. Anthony Says:
