After this short intermission, Mooooo : “Sackcloth and ashes were used in Old Testament times as a symbol of debasement, mourning, and/or repentance. Someone wanting to show his repentant heart would often wear sackcloth, sit in ashes, and put ashes on top of his head. Sackcloth was a coarse material usually made of black goat’s hair, making it quite uncomfortable to wear. The ashes signified desolation and ruin.”

That's great Chuck. Do you have anything to say about Politics before we get back into it?

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/06/2018:  18:09:58


A smidgeon of religion is one thing, but a shot at politics could get Sherry and Bill after us. (DUCK!)



ok, the coast is clear, Mooooo...

I have a good one. The pickup note to the melody starts on the the 5th note of the scale and jumps up a perfect 4th interval(which starts the melody). From there it chromatically skips downward with an embellishment here and there to start over again. It's from an Opera, I believe because whenever I hear it I have images of overacting and way too much make-up. The first three notes of each measure are more pronounced than the others. You can figure out the melody by just playing these three notes if you get the timing right. It's a very famous song, I just don't know the name.

Habeñera from Carmen

Mooooo - Posted - 03/06/2018:  21:03:49


Ding Ding Ding....we have a winner....Yes, that is correct. I had to listen to it to make sure because I never knew the name or the composer, or the opera.

Is that a Banjo Cruise,, or just an Aging Pensioners Cruise?

Mooooo - Posted - 03/06/2018:  21:27:18


It's gotta be the Banjo Cruise.

Thank you, thank you very much.

How about a song that moves around the intervals of the tonic chord for the first 7 notes of the melody.

Mooooo - Posted - 03/06/2018:  22:00:46


I hope it's an Elvis song. Elvis songs and discussions of Elvis songs are noticeably lacking here on the BHO.

I thought Elvis Sails were the rage in 19th Century Piracy.

Correct Chuck. Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Canada, April 2, 1957

All of Canada was a winner this day, he kinda looks like a trophy.

Which “tune” has no notes?

Mooooo - Posted - 03/07/2018:  20:31:20


John Cage's 4'33"

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/07/2018:  20:35:42


CORRECT ,Mike! Just a throwaway question to keep the thread from going stale.
BTW, you win an imaginary trip to an imaginary island in the South Pacific, where dwells an imaginary seductress. (howdya like them apples?)

Mooooo - Posted - 03/07/2018:  20:42:20


Sounds like the perfect get-away...I like them imaginary apples. I'm gonna need some time to think of a song I want to know the name of, it shouldn't take long, but if anyone wants to start one up, go for it.

Here's a slow pitch softball:

This waltz, written by the Waltz King, has a melody that starts out by lazily ascending a major triad, repeating the root note and perfect 5th of the triad.

Would the title include both a color and the name of a river?

It sure does!

Mooooo - Posted - 03/08/2018:  11:15:03


Very good one Jeff and good clue, it wasn't as easy for me as I thought. I thought you played the triad then repeated the 1st and 5th....very clever.

Tell Russ what he won!!!

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/08/2018:  11:15:08


Big River by Johnny Cash......errr, is that a waltz?

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 03/08/2018:  18:40:43


Chuck:  Yes, but that still covers a lot of ground.  You need to be closer to claim the amazing prize!

Mooooo - Posted - 03/08/2018:  18:52:58


Overture? Marriage of Figaro....look above Russ

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 03/08/2018:  18:58:42

Balderdash....I forgot to type in the 2.  Anyway, I didn’t know it, just looked up the YouTube vid on it (called open-book back in 1972 ).

Congratulations, Rick!  You have won an all-expense-paid burial in an unmarked grave somewhere outside of Vienna, Austria.



Chuck, as runner-up, you get the space next to Rick.

Can I have ice cream first?

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 03/09/2018:  07:36:54


How about a song who's intro is in a minor mode and switches to the parallel major for the verse and back to the parallel minor for the chorus          repeat......................

FlyinEagle - Posted - 03/09/2018:  07:52:30


Can you clarify what you mean by song? A nursery rhyme, a patriotic song? A country song for Chucky?
