OK, I've heard this music here and there. I think I might have heard it in Vanilla Sky too.

There is only a piano playing and it goes...
tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tumtumtan-tum...tum...tum

Yeah, that helps a lot. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks!

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Saturday, September 04, 2004 - 07:49 pm: Edit

pretty please?

By Thermodude (Thermodude) on Saturday, September 04, 2004 - 08:04 pm: Edit

I have no clue what song your talking about...the only song that I know that sounds remotely like that is Usher's "Cofessions"...

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Saturday, September 04, 2004 - 09:07 pm: Edit

NOOOO!!! Not Usher! It's a piano piece.

If I could hum it, I would.

By Foreignboy (Foreignboy) on Saturday, September 04, 2004 - 09:53 pm: Edit

tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tum...tumtumtan-tum...tum...tum?

Yeah.. that's helpful. Maybe it's on the Vanilla Sky soundtrack.

Try amazon.com for samples on CDs :)

By Iplayoboe (Iplayoboe) on Saturday, September 04, 2004 - 10:51 pm: Edit

try itunes as well
http://www.apple.com/itunes/

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:22 am: Edit

I tried the soundtrack. I don't see how itunes can help.

However, I have something that can help. Check my profile for the link, and have a listen. Please forgive my sloppy tapping... the piano version sounds better !

By Pookdogg (Pookdogg) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:49 am: Edit

Major or minor? Classical or jazz or pop? With accompanying guitars and drums or solo piano? Could be anything unless we have those pieces of info...

By Sandwraith (Sandwraith) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:02 am: Edit

hey that's catchy... maybe you should make a whole album of finger-tappin rhymes ^.^

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:06 am: Edit

Sorry, but I'm not a professional music person. I don't know the difference between major and minor !

No drums, only piano. It's not classical either, I think. I think its fairly new. 2000ish or 1990ish.

Thanks Sandwraith, I'll call it Ndbisme5's Finger-Tapping Hits of 2004!

By Starwarskid (Starwarskid) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:08 am: Edit

DUN...DUN...DUN...DUHN..DUDUN-DUDUN-DUDUN...

By Asianalto (Asianalto) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:08 am: Edit

Where exactly did you hear this music? Some context would help.

By Starwarskid (Starwarskid) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:11 am: Edit

Lol, it almost reminds me of the beginning of "The Reason", with the single piano key going repeatedly at the beginning and then the Tum-tum-tantum-tum-tum-tantum...

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 01:20 am: Edit

I think from Vanilla Sky. I rewatched the DVD, but I couldn't find it again... I even tried the trailers. I don't know...

Also, it seems my data transfer for the hour is maxed out ! Maybe I ought to start selling this stuff !

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 10:49 am: Edit

More?

By Idiias (Idiias) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:00 am: Edit

I know it! It is "Sometimes I just go for it" by a band called 'The Used'

I'm 99.999% sure about this.

By Emeraldkity4 (Emeraldkity4) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:02 am: Edit

Nancy Wilson is composer. I haven't seen the movie so not sure what you are thinking of.

By Idiias (Idiias) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:28 am: Edit

Rude. You deliberately propose a new song...after I am 99.999% sure I have the correct song...

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:30 am: Edit

Sorry, Idiias, I just heard it and that wasn't the music.

I'm trying to get ahold of a sound bit of Nancy Wilson now...

By Davidrune (Davidrune) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:31 am: Edit

Where do I begin - Chemical Brothers

That's the song, I just knew it when I read the dums.

If you add me on msn, I can send it to you.

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:36 am: Edit

I just tried CB, and NW. Those weren't it. I'm going to try to find a piano thing online instead of these misleading taps !

By Idiias (Idiias) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:40 am: Edit

well did you at least like mine? and you have to admit it came pretty close?

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:45 am: Edit

I'll admit that. For like the first five seconds I wasn't sure... but then the let down . I tried finding an online piano but no luck. Also, someone was playing it on the piano in our residence hall yesterday.

By Davidrune (Davidrune) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:49 am: Edit

Chemical Brothers didn't come close?

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:57 am: Edit



I'll try to describe it a little more. The song isn't techno or jazzy or classical. I think it's fairly modern.

Also it is sort of an emotional song that builds (intensifies) as it progresses. I also think it's been in a couple of movies. I plan on watching the DVD once more (the whole thing) in case I missed it.

By Idiias (Idiias) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 11:57 am: Edit

Post this flyer around you're buidling. Seriously, if you want it bad enough:

"ATTN: Wake Forest University Freshmen:

Think you can play the piano? Come to room #____ to fill out an entry form for the big contest. Come by the end of the day and win a cash prize just for entering!"

I am 99.999% sure the player will show at your door by the end of the day.

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:06 pm: Edit

Naaa... it might be an Honor Code violation to do so.

Good news for me, I have downloaded a piano program and I'm currently trying to find the right chords (major, minor, etc.)

By Iplayoboe (Iplayoboe) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:22 pm: Edit

hm... how much of the song do you remember? um, is there a violin melody later on in the piano song which matches it? suddenly the tum tum tums would make sense to me if thats what the song is... tum tum tum....tum tum tum, tumtum tum tum tatum... if thats it let me know, i know where i can look up the song name and stuff,,.. if in the song there is also violin...heck, i just looked it up anyway... its to purdy to ignore... Celtic Legend by Paul Spaeth. the album is Cobalt Blue.
maybe?

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:28 pm: Edit

Okay, instead of doing homework I have spend the last minutes making two more MP3s. The last two are fairly accurate, but I prefer the last MP3's listed version better. I better go do my HW now...

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 12:32 pm: Edit

Paul Spaeth is pretty good.. but that's not it. I really liked the intro to the song. Listen to the last MP3 especially, I think its as close as I'll get to copying my mental song to binary code!

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 02:58 pm: Edit

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 03:58 pm: Edit

There are no lyrics ! It's just piano.

By Titanz05 (Titanz05) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 04:30 pm: Edit

Hey anyone know what the piano tune is from Platoon? When Charlie Sheen is being airlifted from Vietnam, the tune plays.

Its widely used during war scenes. It was also used for a parody in a Simpons episode. I think it was where like Marge walks in and sees everyone passed out or somehting, I forget.

Its an awesome composition.

By Emeraldkity4 (Emeraldkity4) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 04:42 pm: Edit

is it this?
I am just guessing cause I didn't see that movie either
http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=19266&storeid=-1
In "Platoon," the "Adagio’s" violins play after the Vietnamese village is burned. Their strains return to accompany Charlie Sheen’s introspective monologue at the end of the film. “Each time,” writes film reviewer James Stockstill, “they embody the pain and anguish of the previous moments, searching for cause but finding only loss and despair. The strings become the screams of the wounded, the souls of the lost, and the conscience of the living, and in so, the 'Adagio for Strings' itself serves as a testament to an experience that must be faced to be understood

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Sunday, September 05, 2004 - 04:55 pm: Edit

Nice music. But it wasn't what I was looking for clipart{cheesy}!

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Monday, September 06, 2004 - 11:40 am: Edit

bump?

By Anothersuitcase (Anothersuitcase) on Monday, September 06, 2004 - 07:27 pm: Edit

Titanz05:

That would be Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings".

By Titanz05 (Titanz05) on Monday, September 06, 2004 - 07:58 pm: Edit

Thanks guys.

By Oliviakang (Oliviakang) on Monday, September 06, 2004 - 08:42 pm: Edit

this... is the funniest thread...

when i read the tum-tums, i thought "funeral dirge" but it doesn't match up and I *know* it's not it... I do sympathize though, I was going crazy trying to find the swatch commericial song, only the first person who replied got it, lol.


good luck~

By Ndbisme5 (Ndbisme5) on Monday, September 06, 2004 - 10:28 pm: Edit

Well, next time someone's on the piano, I'm running out of my dorm wearing whatever I might be wearing and running down to ask them what that piece is. I'll post the answer soon... the piano seems to be played a lot during the weekends.
