I dreamt a song in my sleep.

Woke up, and years later I can still remember it.

I should figure out how to pull together a band to perform it.

I've come to call it the 'brush your teeth' song, since the words, in French (primarily), are "Je dois brosser mes dents" (for the most part).

It'd be a great tune for kids, but a little absurd for adults.

Playing drums can be more strenuous than playing soccer:

I think any drummer could have told you that. I realize that's why I'm a sucky drummer. After 2-3 minutes of flat out loud drumming, I'm exhausted.

today, pandora only seems to be playing things I have given the thumbs up to.
Perhaps it decided to be nice to me today.

Razors...if you attach the songs to the message, they'll transfer across to the network nodes, as well.

Files in file rooms are not yet networked. The facility is still being discussed. The discussion revolves around what and how. If people want to add comments as to how we implement this then please open a bugzilla item.

Yeah, this isn't the place to discuss features like that.

but that never stopped us before. Add a trigger message in the room that the networker picks up on to know to move the file over the network as well.
Althoguh I rather thought that was already being done.

So, this morning, as I drove to work, I listened to Chanticleer's performance of Josquin Desprez's _Ave Maria_... one of the more well known ones that the composer did.

I recalled writing a paper on this specific piece of music. My professor puzzled me by assigning our class the task of writing a paper on a piece of music, without a clear idea what he sought in this paper. I found this confusing because the course held the title "Music History 301" or somesuch, yet he made it clear that he wanted us to write a paper about a specific piece of music.

I knew that I could write a complete parametric analysis of this piece of music; I not only had a performance of it on CD somewhere, but I also had the sheet music, and could fully analyse the music without having to try and use my aural skills to work out each note. But it didn't seem like the right thing to do for a music history course.

So, I wrote an informal analysis instead, using a combination of what one might learn from listening and reading the music, and my own sense of humor.

The results ... well, they earned me a 'B', but my instructor advised me against writing something so whimsical for a college course.

All of this came back to me as I listened to this wonderful piece of music, and I got to thinking that, honestly, people get way too uptight about describing music sometimes. I think the whimsy made my paper far easier to read, while still conveying exactly what one might want to know about the music.

I wonder if there's a place for whimsically accurate descriptions of classical music.

I think reviews of music is stupid. Unless you say "it starts with a B, then c, e, a, a..." the only other option is "it sounds a lot like song xxx"
Other than that, I can't see how anybody can explain music in a aural communication language that has any value at all.
I never got that.

Well, heh, there's that old saying, "Writing about music is like dancing to archetecture."

That said, people have been describing the sound of a piece of music for centuries, to varying degrees of success. Most of the time, you wind up having to learn a ridiculous number of specialized words that help you describe facets of music.

But, I think you can still describe music in less-formal language if you're willing to get weird.

And, as you probably know, I'm willing to get weird.

Adequately describing almost any art form with words is exceedingly difficult.
I agree, I'm not entirely sure why it's done, except so that people (endusers) can render an opinion or purchasing decision (based on the reviews) without having first experienced the art form.

but the hit ratio must be so close to zero.
The only way it would work is finding a reviewer who has a history of liking things you like. I can't see how else it could possibly be of any value.
