    Any Classical Music Fans out there?

    I am trying to find the music that actually is so famous I must be so fucking thick to forget it! But how do you hum a tune to Youtube or Google -?

    I thought it was Mendleson, or Mozart, but I am fucked if I can find it, and the hard part is describing it.

    I think it is a slow repetition with the right hand deep down in the bass end of the piano, playing F#, A C# (about an octave or two down from middle C) and then the left hand slowly progresses with an even deeper tone, (but one note every three to the right hand if anyone out there can just play the three notes F#, A, C# on an equal duration and way down deep below middle C, I am sure a bright spark will figure it out!

    I think the second bar goes C#, F, G# -(finishing on F#) but I am tone deaf so who knows! (It is played very slowly)

    I would really appreciate it to get over my ignorance - they used to play this at school to us almost 40 years ago.

    It is the best guess I have with my ears these days, if anyone has a piano, give it a try and see what you come up with, someone will know it.

    I really thought it was Fingles Cave but apparently not.

    Now here is something interesting, for all of you that think I am a bigot and a racist, if you have a uTorrent account, please go and take a look at a documentary called "Precious Life - 2010" for some reason I cannot post the links here, but it really is an amazing documentary. Where a bunch of Jewish Doctors and Journalists break their asses to try and help this Palestinian family to save the life of their baby who needs a marrow transplant.

    The Israeli army bent over backwards to help this couple, and some anonymous Jew donated 50 thousand US dollars to pay for the operation to save her kid.

    She was a complete fucking bitch, she already loses two kids from the same disease before, then she gets bailed out and tries to justify that she will encourage her kid to becom a suicide bomber - and later makes some shabby excuses as to try and justify what she said.

    And not one year later the fucking idiot is pregnant again - trust me (not that you probably will) but if you have 90 minutes to spare, go and take a look and download the documentary, it just shows the complete madness that is going on over there in Gaza and Israel.

    "Precious.Life.2010.SUBBED.DVDRIP.XVID"

    It is actually heartbreaking, even for a [at][at][at][at] like me!

    Obviously a bunch of fucking heathens!

    And did some [at][at][at][at] send my "Gay Post" to Thai Visa? I got suspended from a 3 day ban on postings to "NEVER COME BACK HERE AGAIN" I cannot keep up with all these false fucking E mails! - I think Scott the Super Gay Moderator recognised himself busy sucking in one of those photos and was a little put out!

    . Find song names using your own voice
    Midomi – If you have a tune that’s stuck in your head, just grab a microphone, hum that tune yourself and Midomi will be able tell you what that song is. Alternatively, you may play a short recording of that “unknown” track for Midomi to identify its name.

    Unlike Shazam which is a mobile app, Midomi offers a web interface where you can can hum or sing for about 10 seconds and the service will then show you a list of matching songs. For best results, keep the volume bar in the green and avoid background noise.

    Midomi is free to use online, but it also offers mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Nokia Ovi and Windows Mobile phones. You can identify songs by holding your phone up to a speaker or by singing / humming the melody into the phone itself.

    It's a stab in the dark, but perhaps you are thinking of Bach's 'Air on a G string'?

    Given the Hebrew theme of your OP arfur, another thought is Verdi's 'Va Pensiero', aka Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves. It is a particularly lovely piece, although almost invariably played with a choral accompaniment.

    Translation in English
    Fly, thought, on wings of gold;
    go settle upon the slopes and the hills,
    where, soft and mild, the sweet airs
    of our native land smell fragrant!

    Greet the banks of the Jordan
    and Zion's toppled towers...
    Oh, my country so beautiful and lost!
    Oh, remembrance so dear and so fatal!

    Golden harp of the prophetic seers,
    why dost thou hang mute upon the willow?
    Rekindle our bosom's memories,
    and speak to us of times gone by!

    Mindful of the fate of Jerusalem,
    give forth a sound of crude lamentation,
    or may the Lord inspire you a harmony of voices
    which may instill virtue to suffering.


    p.s:- it sounds much better in Italian

    Hamlet Cigar Commercials used an excerpt from a jazzy rendition of Bach's Air on the G String, played by the then young Jacques Loussier, which is still frequently associated with the brand

    I love classical music, although i haven't listened to any while being in Thailand. Jazz and classical was all i listened to in the UK. My favorites were Prokoviev, Stravinsky and Fucik.

    Unfortunately i'm spoilt as i used a high-end esoteric system back home as it was also my job to test this stuff. An AJ system just isn't right.

    Most of my listening is now in the car which is mainly rock, electronic or Armin van Buuren stuff.
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    I've been told I have a classic & opera music collection to die for, but it rarely sees the light of day.

    You've also been banned from here (twice) - are you a bit too thick for the message to sink in?

    I think you'll find thats the left hand unless the player is lying across the top of the piano , pretty rare these days.

    Not saying the following match your description but mighty nice classic classics anyway.
