Can someone help me come up with the name of a piece of music?
FR ^ | April 9, 2013 | beaversmom

Posted on 04/08/2013 11:03:20 PM PDT by beaversmom

I'm trying to come of with the name of a piece of music. I have very little to describe it. I heard it being played on a classical station the other day, but it's not classical music, I don't think. It's weird, creepy, dream like music. I believe it was used in a funny commercial in the last couple of years. I think the people are lethargic in the commercial. It's dream like music. A creepy dream. If I could come up with the commercial, I could come up with the music. HELP ME!!!

If you know the day and about the time you heard it, call the radio station and ask them about it.

They keep playlists of what they play.

“I think the people are lethargic in the commercial”

Well, sounds like an Obama campaign commercial but that can’t be what you are thinking about.

Maybe it was The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Could that have been it? I remember hearing it in a commercial a year ot two ago. It came out in the 1970’s as a theme song for a Clint Eastwood movie of same name.

Well, let’s eliminate some simple ones:

Strauss - Blue Danube

Bocelli - Nessun Dorma

Mozart - Eine kleine Nachtmusik

When I first got on that ride, I thought, well it’s kinda cool, each different language -— by the end of the ride, I was ready to dismantle the entire ride.

Just a guess, but do a Youtube search of Ennio Moricone music. He writes for movies, but he is a classical composer at heart. Once Upon A Time In The West is a classical sounding piece from a Western Movie!

BTW, did the piece feature an oboe?

No. It’s a more recent commercial. Last couple of years. I can’t even think of what they are doing. They are all in like a dream state. Zoned out or something.

Creepy Classical music would be:

Night on Bare Mountain.

Bach’s Tocatta and fugue in d minor

Funeral March for a Marionette

Dance macabre

......

Dreamlike music?

You’re probably thinking of the moonlight sonata.

Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns was the first thing that sprung to mind. I see on wiki it was used in some whiskey commercials last year.

Elect me President and I promise I will order the B-1 Lancers to take out the Small Word ride. After hours, of course.

Say your prayers little one
Don’t forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

—did it sound like this? ;)

Reminds me of a joke I heard long ago.

There's this drunk in a bar and it's just him and the bartender.

The drunk wants another drink but is out of money.

The drunk offers to sell the rights to some music he wrote for the price of another drink.

The bartender isn't going to be cheated so he tells the drunk to play it on the piano and if he likes it he gets his drink.

Drunk proceeds to play this fantastic tune that the bartender had never heard.

Bartender pours him a drink... and asks, why haven't you sold this to a music publisher... Drunk says he's tried but the music keeps being rejected.

Bartender asks: What is the name of the song? Drunk answers, it's "I love you so F'ing much I can't Sh_t."

No. I think it’s electronic. It’s slow. Not “classical”.

I looked up the first 4 from your suggestion...none of those. I know not the last one. Thank you though. I’m never going to figure it out. I don’t think it’s classical. I’m listening to so much music it’s escaping from my brain now.

Thank you. And I’m aware there are only 50 states.

I even have a long form birth certificate and both parents were United States citizens.

And I promise you, no rap music in the White House, we WILL celebrate Christmas the old-fashioned way with no commie props.

And I will support the 2nd Amendment.

I do want the “Star Tours” ride brought back. That was fun.
