Here are two songs you are sure to remember. They were both written by Edvard Grieg, and were posted here last year around this time (before I knew how to do sound effects!)

Say Hello To My Little Friend

Piano Music

Here are some songs from a piano music book titled Piano Literature Volume One. Its $5.50 price has to be one of the best deals around. That’s around 30 cents per song.

I posted some of the songs yesterday using an organ, but I think they sound better on a piano. Hence the title.

There are 18 songs altogether, so be sure and check back later to hear the other songs. So far the reception has been tremendous, with downloads in the triple digits. Watch out, Google.

Beethoven Ecossaise in G
Mozart Minuet in F
Bach Minuet in G BWV 116
Bach March in D
Bach Minuet in G BWV 114
Bach Minuet in G Minor BWV 115
Spindler Sonatina

In the event you were wondering what BWV stands for, the Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (BWV) is a catalogue of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach. It was first published in 1950, edited by Wolfgang Schmieder. The catalogue’s second edition appeared in 1990. An abbreviated version of that second edition, known as BWV2a, was published in 1998.

These songs were all written by Johann Sebastian Bach.

It was first published in 1950, edited by Wolfgang Schmieder. The catalogue’s second edition appeared in 1990. An abbreviated version of that second edition, known as BWV2a, was published in 1998.

Your Daily Dose

Here it is, fresh off the press.

It’s the perfect music for parties and seances!

Answers: The first, second, and fourth songs are Orlando Di Lasso. It is titled “The Echo Song.” The third song is Bach Chorale Number 63. Just 38 to go…..

The Echo Song Lyrics

My word!
what a lovely echo!
let’s try it out.
Pleased to meet you!
Ha ha ha ha ha,
let’s all laugh!
Oh my fine companion?
What do you want?
I’d like you to sing
a
song
Why?
Why should I?
Why not?
Because I don’t want to.
Why don’t you want to?
Because I don’t feel like it!
Shut up I say!
You shut up,
you big fool!
Yes Sir!
Come now, no more!
Let’s go!
Goodbye good echo!
Goodbye good echo!
Peace be with you.
That’s enough,
enough,
enough!

Do you know why people sometimes wear complementary colors? For the compliments, of course.
