Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine shaft?

A flat minor.

    Why a mine shaft?

    Where else will you find a miner @april, except perhaps down the pub.

    Oh, I get it now, @mheredge . Thanks :) :) :)

    Perhaps I should have added the minor scale in the homophones @april.
    minor / miner

    Oh, it is just me, @Lynne who is always slow on the uptake.
    Like now; sorry @Frank, I can't LOL at your joke, because I don't get the humour. :(

    @april - In musical notation # denotes a sharp (higher in pitch) note. If someone says you are looking sharp, it means you look well-dressed.

    Is this one better for you @april?

    Everyone laughs when I say I once met a famous orchestra conductor with only one arm!
  • FrankFrank Moderator Posts: 6,158 mod
    I think that that's more difficult than you might expect @mheredge. For some signs a conductor normally has to use both of his arms. i.e. indicating a playing group and another group, then raising one arm while lowering the other: cross-fade - the group that was playing fades out, the other group fades in.

    Here you can watch a complete lexicon of conductor-signs:

    How do you tell the difference between a violinist and a dog?
    The dog knows when to stop scratching.

    At the height of his fame Adam Ant visits the set of Coronation Street and Stan Ogden invites to come for a drink in legendary pub the Rover's Return on set. There they proceed to sink a great many pints of fine English ale. More than a little the worse for wear, Adam Ant decides to get one more round in. But as he stands up, he suddenly grips his side and starts moaning terribly.
    'What is it, mate?' says his companion.
    Adam starts singing: 'Stan, it's my liver...'

    Bagpipes (noun) - I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made object never equalled the purity of sound achieved by the pig. -Alfred Hitchcock

    How can you make musicians complain?

    Pay them.
  • homanmihhomanmih Posts: 675 ✭✭✭✭
    edited April 2015
    A crunch of broken glass in minor way could make them to complain out loud and even to cry literally.

    Do you mean the sound hurts their ears @homanmih?
  • homanmihhomanmih Posts: 675 ✭✭✭✭
    I means sounds influence their souls more than others common things.

    Piano is my favorite musical instrument. I want to learn it and it seems Frank is going to start a music class here soon. :)
  • homanmihhomanmih Posts: 675 ✭✭✭✭
    Actually music influences all of us more than we realize. I admire when musicians joke, for example «Igudesman & Joo».

    Why did the music teacher need a ladder?

    To reach the high notes.
  • homanmihhomanmih Posts: 675 ✭✭✭✭
    It's the most necessary musical instrument for teaching spanish serenades in high classes.

    Where did the music teacher leave her keys?

    In the piano!
  • homanmihhomanmih Posts: 675 ✭✭✭✭
    She's left keys in keyhole, that is at the door, that leads to the room, where piano with piano keyboard is staying now.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,131 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @homanmih :) so it is you who kept the keys in piano.
