This past Thursday night at orchestra rehearsal, we played Halloween-type music. One of the pieces we played was Edvard Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King:

http://youtu.be/vGMibtThdmA

The tune is very repetitive, as you can hear. So of course its very easy to get it stuck in your mind (as it has in mine).

Other "scary"-type music we played:
-Toccata (from Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor):
http://youtu.be/sr5PYnVb1iM
-Scooby-doo
-Theme from Jaws
-Murder scene from Psycho
-Monster Mash
-Ghostbusters

The downtown merchants in the town in which I live and work host trick-or-treating on the Saturday near Halloween, and my orchestra will be there. Too bad I won't, because it really is fun music to play. It is my fall break and I will be out of town.

:windy: :witching: :jackolantern: :bat:

Samfan,

When I was at William and Mary I was dating an organist who would practice at Bruton Parish Church on Duke of Gloucester Street at night. As the point of DOG Street was to step back into Colonial America, it was lit only with lamplight. His fave thing to do was to begin at about 9 pm as crowds were thinning a bit, but still present, and play the Toccata and Fugue, pulling out all the stops!
...And I do hope that you find somebody who deserves you.

Not to change the subject, but W&M and Bruton Parish Church are really close to me. My dad went to W&M, too. It's a great school and very old. I think it was established in 1693, if memory serves. I think you said that you're in Arlington now, correct? Well, that's still not far from Virginia Beach :wavehello:

I've been to Bruton Parish Church. Isn't it supposedly the oldest church in the country that's still in use? Or something like that...

Anyway, just goes to show what a small world we live in and it's getting smaller everyday.

I think that's just tickety-boo!

I was in the choir there, in my college days. It was very Church of England and so of course I loved it.

When I was in high school, my grandma, parents, and I went and saw The Phantom of the Opera at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. I had the music running through my head for at least a week.

Puff, the magic dragon, lives by the sea... over and over and over again. In my head. Help me.

The children's area in the library where I volunteer has music softly playing. Tonight it was this song, looping over and over again. Groan. :brickwall:

Perhaps one of my favourite Larson cartoons will help drive the song from your head, Samfan ...

I woke up this morning with "Just Walk Away, Renee" running through my head, although I haven't heard it in years. I always wonder what causes that!

I'm officially tired of the "Happy" song. It happened a couple of weeks ago when the TV station I used to work for showed people in the newsroom, including some I used to work with, dancing to it on the air......
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

Damn, I was going to video the tots dancing to "Happy" on Easter Sunday after their egg hunt. Bad idea? Be honest. They are 1-6 years of age and pretty cute, gushed their auntie.

I think it's OK for the kids, TBoo. My problem is with adults working in a newsroom. :|

Now, that's funny.

I retired from the daily news biz a year ago after 30 years as a reporter and then columnist. No one was dancing in our newsroom. Hard to get "happy" about working for a dinosaur. Two years ago, my assistant was yelled at by the managing editor for laughing. Seriously.

Years ago, when circulation was high and budgets were fat, there was dancing, pop gun fights, an editor "alert" system and reporters shagging (I love that word) on the roof. It's so not fun anymore.

Thanks for the thumb's up on the kids' Easter video!

I've had my share of "ear worms" (songs stuck in my head), but yesterday from out of the blue a "poem worm" got me. Ogden Nash's poem The Termite popped in my head while driving home from work.

The Termite

Some primal termite knocked on wood
And tasted it, and found it good!
And that is why your Cousin May
Fell through the parlor floor today.


Mwhaa...Now I'm not alone, am I? :rofl:
