Subject: So What's YOUR Entrance Music?

Date: 06 Jan 00 - 02:29 PM

Last year, while watching the World Series, the announcers said that each player got to choose a piece of music to be played when he came up to bat. So I got to thinking...what song or music would Mudcatters use as their "entrance music" or adopt as their "personal theme song"? Would it be an inspiring or intimidating music, or a song that describes you or how you feel, or just something you like?

i can jst picture the opening chords to alice's restaurant when i walk into a room (just goin' 'round on the guitar). i mean sometimes i just find myself swaying a long without realizing it or walking with a strange swagger. and i've had to stop myself from singing slong to the chorus when i'm in a position of terror (like finding myself surrounded by 15-year old boys who listen to marolyn manson....but that's another story...)

i never thought about it too much until now though...hmmm...it's like i could tell my own life stories over those chords

Ummm... As I've said so often in othere threads of this type.. it depends on what mood I'm in... but I'll see if I can pick a few of the biggies...

Broadsword by Jethro Tull... Or When Jeasus Came To Play by same...

Industrial Lullaby by Stephen Fearing or Blade Runner Blues or Any Colour But Blue by Don Ross for thoes days when I'm in black, under a cloud... Or have been reading too much William Gibson...

Don Ross's First Ride or Afraid To Dance are a couple of tuens I like to have on when I drive into a new town for the first time...

Leonard Cohen's I'm Your Man is high on the list there somewhere too...

I'd also pick the theme from Indiana Jones.. Goes with the hat...

So just a start I guess...

One of the reasons I asked about this is because I've had several "entrance music" and "theme songs" over the years.
Like:
Tune in D Major by Jeremiah Clarke
The Light Cavalry Overture by Von Suppe
The Rakoczy March by Berlioz (when I was in Okinawa)
Under Pressure by Queen & David Bowie (during my first year at college)
Let Down by Radiohead (during a tough summer semester)
I Hope, I Think, I Know (during a tough spring semester)
10538 Overture by Electric Light Orchestra (my entrance music now--that riff, chose chugging cellos, that french horn...it's me, and I'm gonna getcha...

Last summer I was at music camp, and had been playing inside with some other musicians. When they folded up the stands and music, I took my fiddle out int the gorgeous June night and strolled over to the bon fire playing Wind that Shakes the Barley. I didn't realize it as I was doing it, but no one at the fire could see me. They just heard the fiddle tune coming over the field to them. I like it. That's me.

http://www.fortunecity.com/tinpan/lennon/193/Carmina_Burana.mid

Conquest of Paradise (Vangelis from 1492)
http://www.htb.at/user/gilbert/1492.mid

Triumphal March From Aida (Verdi) (Includes SATB Vocal Parts)
http://www.buffnet.net/~nfpress/Aida.mid

Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves (verdi) The action starts after the first 16 bars, the vocal parts should be much louder.
http://tinpan.fortunecity.com/saints/955/Midi/verdi/Hebrew.mid

And from Bron's suggestion in case you haven't heard it (I hadn't) here's Danse Macabre by St Saens

I guess mine would be the Queen of the Night aria from Magic Flute. Or Dance of the Knights, from Prokovief's Romeo & Juliet...... I like it loud and solid......

Others might disagree, and suggest something like 'Flushed from the bathroom of my heart' or 'Dropkick me Jesus, through the goalposts of life'.... I've got a lot of very strange "friends"......

I have adopted " July, Your'e a Woman" as my theme song and usually open with it. It is penned by John Stewart, he just never realized he wrote it for me.


JULY, YOU'RE A WOMAN

I can't hold it on the road
When your're sittin' right beside me
And I'm drunk out of my mind
Merely from the fact that you are here
I have not been known as the saint of San Juaquin
And I'd just as soon right now pull on over
To the side of the road and show you what I mean

Ref
La da da da da da daaa- la da da da da da da daaaa
July your're a woman , more than anyone I've ever known…

Yeah! And I can't hold my eyes
on the white lines out before me when your head
Is on my collar and you're talkin' in my ear
And I have been around with a gypsy girl
Name Shannon, the daughter of the devil>br> Ain't it strange I should mention that to you
I haven't thought of her in years

WOW folks, you got some grear entrance music going on! Speaking entrance music, here a bit of "exit music." John mentioned "Va Pensiero"(The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) from Guiseppe Verdi's opera "Nabucco." When Verdi died, an estimated 20,000 people attended his funeral. As this humongous funeral train began the walk to the cemetery, I single voice started to sing "Va Pensiero." Soon all 20,000 took up the chorus as Verdi was marched to his final resting place. What a way to go! MAN!! What I would do to have hear the twenty thousand vioces singing Verdi home..."Go thought on golden wings..."

Ah, memory jolted by Wincing..... Actually did have Saint Saens as an entrance piece, when I married, I walked in to the organ concerto. So glad I didn't get married 8 years later when it was the music running throughout the length of 'Babe the sheep-pig'...... I hate the damn tune, but SO chose the going in so I got to choose the going out - Some Tocatta thing, but not by Bach, see, can't even remember it was so good!! Anything rather than the deadly duo of Lohengrin and Mendelssohn....

Well, I would of course have to go with "Catspaw's Rag" with my thanks to Rick. Additionally, I think the entrance music used by Red Skelton for his "Freddie the Freeloader" character would work. Personally, I'd also like Vivaldi's Concerto in F, first movement, for bassoon.
