Yes, we have recording studios up here.... inside our igloos

Well this one was recorded way back in the late '60s originally until it was smuggled out across the border and re-recorded by some gringos and put into a movie. But the coolest version was recorded by a Bluegrass band and they started it out picking "The Girl I Left Behind Me" on the Mando.

I received a telephone inquiry from a bride-to-be wanting our string quartet to play for the ceremony and reception.



She specifically wanted “that Mexican song that gets played at weddings a lot” for the processional.



Since I could think of no material matching that description, I asked if she could give more information.



She replied, “I think it’s called the Taco Bell canon . . . “



Sigh . . .






Please tell me you are joking.






Not joking, Jeff!



It did, however, become sort of an inside joke for the quartet.  Any tiime we were playing “elevator music” for an occasion, John Heagler, our first violin, would say, “Let’s do the Mexican thing.”  It was always good for at least a smile.



Mike, we saved anything involving Ole for Minnesota gigs or the Sons of Norway dinner.

The Original and Movie versions start with a flute tooting out the following notes:
|--33-45-5-2------| for the first chord then |--11-2 3-3-7------| for the next chord...
and Taco Bells Canon goes I-V-VI-III-IV-I-IV-V

Woo hooo hoooo!!!! Yessssss. It's One Tin Soldier. Covered by bands known, unknown. I believe this is the first appearance of a Bluegrass song in this thread.



Your prize is One Tin Soldier made of 100% gold...so it's one gold tin soldier. 



Start the next round at your convenience but before someone else does because all's fair in war.

Sorry I missed that one. It was first recorded by The Original Caste, a Calgary pop group formed in 1966.

I heard they set up the studio in an Igloo

Answers:  Four are below, and maybe.

I like that Rawhide Creek, keeping it hard but still giving a hint.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/07/2018:  12:22:09


Zownds familyer, can’t place it

Mooooo - Posted - 04/07/2018:  12:46:24


Just from playing around and from what sounds good to me, I figure that the 7 and the last 5,6, and 7 are below the 1. 



I don't know the melody, it sounds like classical music though...Bach, Mozart....



Can you tell us what instrument it is written for?

Another hint:  It’s one of a set of nine.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/07/2018:  14:10:46


Most of the music on The Nine Planets is taken from the recording of The Planets op. 32 by Gustav Holst by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by André Previn (Telarc 80133); the Pluto piece is from a different recording (see below). Click to play excerpts from each movement:

Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic
Pluto, the Renewer

Nope.  Not even close by many, many years.  And it’s not Pachelbel . . .

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/07/2018:  15:18:45


From one of Ludwig’s nine symphonies?

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 04/07/2018:  15:21:43


Nope.  Again, not close by many, many years.

Hole 10 from the back nine at Pebble Beach? Didn't Chopin do a series of Golf Etudes?



There were 9 muses from Greek mythology



There are 9 baseball players on the field at one time, and hopefully only nine innings in a game

Nine Little Preludes from Wilhelm Friedemann Bach's Klavierbüchlein (924–932) ?

No.  Still off by lots of years.



Another hint:  You can play a round with it.

Mooooo - Posted - 04/08/2018:  11:41:15


And it's not about Golf? You can play a round of Golf. Bach's Golf Club Suite? How about Row Row Row Your Boat?



Maybe it's some kind of Gregorian Chant....

Familiar to some,,,obscure to others

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 04/08/2018:  18:08:49


“Row, Row, Row Your Boat” is close in spirit.  The tune, like “Simple Gifts”, has been used for hymn texts.  It has even been used as a setting for the Doxology instead of “Old Hundredth”.

Mooooo - Posted - 04/08/2018:  21:08:57


I'm not familiar with the melody, I am unfamiliar with the Doxology too. I Googled "Old Hundredth" and "Simple Gifts"...I have never heard those either.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/08/2018:  21:13:02


I’ve heard Doxologies, and Simple Gifts.. but don’t recognize that melody you offered ,Russ. (hmm...offering?..yeah, give til it hurts)

Number 19 on your winners’ list is “Simple Gifts”.  It was used in “Appalachian Spring” with variations.



Another hint:  The composer died almost 100 years—okay, call it over 99 years—before Sebastian Bach was born.
