AndreasW Musical Puns? (59* d) RE: Musical Puns? 27 Nov 98


On reading the title of this thread I thought of something completely different.
All the puns given so far are lyric puns, not music puns, as I see it.
A musical pun is something like Johann Sebastian Bach composing a Fuge (don't know the english word for it) with a theme of the four notes b-a-c-h
Or doing themes with 14 tacts (if you replace a by 1, b by 2, c by 3 and so on, h is replaced by 8, and so b+a+c+h = 2+1+3+8 = 14)
Examples of that kind was what I expected to see
But I had a good laugh all the same reading some of the lyrical puns (not understanding the others).
Andreas
