For a wannabe elf you're starting on the wrong foot, m'dear.

E.g. Univeral Picture's Spider-Man movies are using bonus tracks by local artists to promote the product.

Once again I am completely unable of following your thought process and seeing how that relates to anything here, 14, but the entire thread is a mess and I have no idea what happened at the start of it.

By the way, the bonus track marketing strategy works. Youtube's official VEVO music videos are pretending that such a local bonus track is a "Soundtrack The Amazing Spider-Man 2", as if some local artist was asked to perform the main, international soundtrack. People do believe that, reply that it's an excellent choice, and sometimes wonder why the number of Youtube views isn't 40 million yet.

I don't like movies, but I've also verified an old joke of a comedian. Amadeus won several Oscars in 1985 (best picture, best director, best actor, best adapted screenplay, best sound mixing, best art direction, best makeup, best costume design), but not in a "best music" category. So unfortunately they've selected the wrong composer. As such there was no award for "best music". Nevertheless the "best original song" was I Just Called to Say I Love You, and indeed Amadeus wasn't even nominated.

Nobody has been misled. The M series is being researched even as I write.

Well, I would have found it weird for the Elves to go about researching, producing podcasts and tweeting as if everything was normal if something was up.

The claim that we're "being misled" strikes me as being in the same category of someone declaring a deity's earthly return, but being so bad at it they only get three followers. (Is that a mean description? Probably, but there's something pretty off with the way it's claimed.)

So, inevitably, for the newbies here: The Farter from Sparta

But on a higher level, can you name a composer whose name is frequently mentioned literally in the same breath as Beethoven?

The answer is Spohr - as in Mikado the music-hall singer is punished with " ... masses and fugues and op's by Bach, interwoven with Spohr and Beethoven ... " - and I do really mean literally, as the performer probably couldn't draw breath between the names.

(Edited, to correct the quote.)

Welcome phantomx :-)

I don't think I've every heard a piece of music by Spohr, but when I looked him up on YouTube he seems to have been quite prolific.

Very prolific indeed.

And inventive as well:

Quote:
Spohr was a noted violinist, and invented the violin chinrest, about 1820. He was also a significant conductor, being one of the first to use a baton and also inventing rehearsal letters, which are placed periodically throughout a piece of sheet music so that a conductor may save time by asking the orchestra or singers to start playing "from letter C", for example.

100 years, to the day, after "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" was used as a de facto anthem, the Star Spangled Banner was officially used as the US anthem on Independence Day.



Americans nearly always sing just the first stanza of The Star-Spangled Banner even though the words 'Land of the Free and Home of the Brave' end with a question mark. This is because they describe a real battle during the War of 1812 when Fort McHenry in Baltimore was under attack from the British and the fate of a young nation hung in the balance. Francis Scott Key wanted to reflect a mixture of fear and patriotism. Would the banner still wave? Would he have a home to return to?

Of the other three verses one ends with an exclamation mark and the last two end with full stops.
