So... Patrick has a favorite song.
When he hears it he laughs hysterically. It's apparently the funniest thing in Patrick's entire world.
I'll admit I was a little surprised by his choice...
And this is the song (The video wouldn't stop playing so I linked to another version!).
Nit picking...but the William Tell Overture isn't a song. A song involves singing. It's an orchestral piece. In this case it's part of an opera (which does involve singing, but I wouldn't call those songs either. You usually refer to them by their form: recitative is fast talking-like and arias are lyrical.)ReplyDelete
He has nice taste. There are better youtube versions of the overture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7O91GDWGPU
Sorry. It's one of the first things that I learned in undergrad. If you're a musician, you sound uneducated calling orchestral works "songs." Most people don't know that though.
If anyone wants to play it safe, the most generic term you can use is "musical piece" or "piece of music."
I know I'm sounding way too nit picky. Just figured someone as smart as you are would like to know.
It's lovely. Have you seen Victor Borge's version? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuWUp1M-vuMReplyDelete
Oh my, this is the favorite of a certain Little Bear who lives in my house! We sing as we pat him on the back for a burp this:ReplyDelete
Getta burp, getta burp, getta burp burp burp...
to this music.
LOVE this piece of music.
