Jonathan’s musical trivia quiz: Name that tune in 1

Share

At a recent recording, while we were waiting for the kettle to boil or a hard drive to back up, we got a bit silly and starting playing ‘name that tune in one’ – i.e. you only get the first note or chord of the piece. Fancy playing?

Number one in the quiz, which I’ll try and do for a week… is a famous ballet by at least two people, as well as a piece of music in its own right. Click below to hear.

Name that tune in 1, #1

Will the real Eduard Khil’ (trololo man) please stand up? Yes!

Wonderful to see that the original  trololo man Eduard Khil’ is still very much alive and well, and enjoying his internet fame (a recent comment called him the ‘Jesus Christ of Youtube’). Here he is on a Russian TV programme watching clips from Youtube of other people imitating the Trololo song. And it’s another reason to love the Internet.

And for hardcore trololo fans, here he  is singing along with his fans on Skype.

The related videos make for perfect procrastination material. I’m just waiting for Trololo the ballet.
