Apropos of nearly nothing, I was thinking about how way back in sixth grade (so, like, 1986 or so) one of my fellow students taught me this "class song" - he might have signed a yearbook or something with it...
Party hardy / Rock and RollThat was... pretty foresightful for sixth graders to come up with? Though maybe it was just a response to "Party Hearty, rock and roll, drink bacardi, smoke a bowl, Life if good, lets get our kicks, cuz we're the class of 86!!" (Also, this song but I think it's a lot more recent?
Drink a bottle / Smoke a bowl
Love is fun / Sex is too
We're the Class of '92!
I got to thinking of a few other rhymes like that. Sedaris mentioned a bumpersticker I also remember from way back when:
Bumper to Bumper.Another one I once saw scratched on a pier at a Cleveland / Lake Erie park:
Butt to Butt
Get Off My Ass
You Crazy Nut!
Eric was hereI remember one of my fellow counselors mentioning that was a pretty good one, as far as the genre goes.
But now he's gone
His last few words
were "party on!"
Those who knew him,
knew him well.
Those who didn't
can go to hell!
Nice technical breakdown of how Mega Man 2's music does what it does. I only barely have enough mojo to follow the chord stuff, but I was happy as always to see the blues scale there.
I really broke my non-tuba bass clef reading abilities by the way I self-taught transposition, and it's not getting better these days since I'm more likely to be told the name of the chord - but when I see a Bb written in bass clef, I still think of it as "C".
Maybe I should try to pick up guitar or some chord-centric thing to widen my musical understanding.
