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!!!
The Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the water spout......
Well? You DID say creepy! Some people ARE creeped out by spiders!
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.
I need to come up with this because it’s going to drive me nuts...and I’m already nuts.
No, not Obama Zombies. But good thought.
Or is more like dee-dum dee-da-da dum?
I’m not even sure of the radio station. I didn’t have it on.
LOL. Hmmm, let me think? Neither. Weird and dreamy and creepy and kinda funny.
I saw the title and got out of there as quickly as I could!
That is THE most annoying song, isn’t it???
I mean the radio station was on, but I wasn’t playing it.
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
Can you hum a few bars?
Yeah, none of those. I don’t think it’s actual “classical” music.
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.
Not on my life...sorry to use your name in vain.
Oh yes.......I know...
3 kids. THREE kids. I had to go on that ride over and over and over and I think I’m writing them out of the will..
Nessun Dorma is so great.
I’m pretty sure this is it. Here you go.
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.
Oh I know Ennio...see my FR page. :) Pretty sure not Ennio. Thank you though for the idea.
You almost got me!!! :)
Creepy Classical music would be:
Night on Bare Mountain.
Bach’s Tocatta and fugue in d minor
Funeral March for a Marionette
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.
You poor soul. I experienced the torture of that ride.
Elect me President and I promise I will order the B-1 Lancers to take out the Small Word ride. After hours, of course.
Yes and Bocelli is awesome on it.
Theme song to Dark Shadows?
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? ;)
Ba-naaa-na-naaaaaa (said to his fifth symphony opening)
Your grandkid(s) will love that one !
You have my vote! And probably that of MANY MANY PARENTS and grandparents and babysitters and aunts and uncles....
Thank you mylife. I appreciate it.
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”.
TWO in particular would laugh over that...!!
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.
Try searching youtube for the bells of St Agnes (?).
I know. I'm sorry. I'm nuts and I wanted company.
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.
Try looking here. No tricks this time!
