Well you two managed to get this old guy to listen all the way through his first euro-tech song!

And he discovered some great harmony and fine guitar along the way.

Gotta love the ha-ha-ha's

And a classical piece as the inspiration? How cool is that? VERY

Breaking rules and breaking out from norms is fun!! Great work.

Hi R & AM,

Nice children's song. With all the repetition I could imagine younger kids having great fun singing along.

Hi Noel,

Thanks for your nice comments and the links.
I know most of these songs, but only knew of some that they had a classical basis.
By the way, Yvonne Keeley is Dutch. She used to sing with her sister Patricia Paay, who is still a tv personality here.

I don't know if you listened to our "3 Minute Waltz", for which I used Chopin's Minute Waltz. It was one of the first songs we posted on this forum. In case you missed it, this is the link:
http://youtu.be/nnA57mnBUvk

At the moment I'm busy with more compositions of Grieg and Chopin.
It takes more time though, than let BiaB do the work. But the result is something else than the traditional verse, verse, chorus, solo, verse, chorus.
And there's a lot of classical music I like, so why not use it?
Thanks again for your encouraging words!

Anne-Marie

Hi Josie,

Yes, as we stated in our post, it might be a song that is appreciated more by younger people. I would like to hear children sing it, maybe in a school musical. In our country that is the way to end primary school. The children that leave primary school to go on with their education, perform a "self made (mostly by the teachers) musical", for which well known songs are used.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Hi Bud and Janice,

Well... that's quite a compliment!
So it's not only the young ones who like this song! Or should I say "young at heart" in this case?
As I like some classical music very much, I'll go on using it for our songs.
Thanks for your kind words.

Anne-Marie

I too made the connection to ABBA and Eurotech.... neither of which are on my list of favorite things.

I appreciate the work you put into this.

Good job.

Hi Herb,
Well.... actually I think ABBA's voices are nice, but I must admit, I don't have any of their records.
And as for the Eurotech sound... I think it suited the original best, but I don't have any of that type of music either.
So next time I'll compose a song that's more like my other stuff, I promise wink

Hi 90 dB,
As a matter of fact.... I've tried. But the Sabre Dance consists of an enormous amount of the same chords. It is the very fast way in which they are played, which makes the melody so exciting.
However, I am busy with 2 classical pieces (Chopin and Grieg), so if you like classical music.....
But there are people who hate classical music to be turned into modern music!

Regards,
Anne-Marie
