Best comeBach ever
Interesting response. But if you keep explaining, you'll get nothing but Bach to Bach excuses. What they have to do is to go Bach to school and learn something about the history of music. It will give them the Bachbone to do their job right so they won't be so confugued.
But but but..he was there! She says so:
Somebody famous (I think it may have been Bach, or maybe Pinocchio) once said, "Just because someone is famous, you can't believe everything they say."
The composer Max Reger was once savaged by a critic. His terse response sent to the newspaper: “My dear Herr so and so, I am sitting in the smallest room of my house. Your review is before me. Soon it will be behind me.”
While this discussion STRIKES A CHORD as I SCROLL down, all these puns are giving me HIGH FITS. Yes, it's time to SHIFT the topic, go have a drink, and engage in the usual BARTOK. Come to think of it, my car also needs a TUNE-UP. And on that NOTE.....
Someone asked whether Bach was part of the Wagner Group - Well, Wagner WAS his favourite male pupil.
This reminds me of a joke about the former Soviet Union. A musician was reading a score by Bach on the train. Some agent looked over his shoulder, could not understand the glyphs on the paper. Just to be on the safe side, they arrested the musician when he left the train.
Anyone know how to insert a laugh uproariously emoji on this site?
The toilet in the washroom at a music academy had a sticky mechanism. Someone wrote on the wall above it: "Push down HARD on Handel." Below this, someone else wrote: "If I push hard, will it push Bach?" A third writer added: "No, silly, it plays Water Music!"
Sounds like they are on a roll.
I know it's fun but it sounds to me as though Maestronet's Pegbox virus has migrated here. Is it time for N-95 masks again?
Yes, the computer has become the great sebastion of viruses, and we all need to face it with masks....(and I do realize that my comments here are causing me a great deal of treble. Some of my good friends are asking me how I ever got on the staff. Sonatan easy question to answer.)
Sander, "Sounds like they are on a roll." An Offenbach Bach roll?
Sounds good. How about the Famous Beatles' song - "Etuuuuude...Don't be afraid...Take a sad song, and make it better...."
Someone once asked me if I like Offenbach? “Well,” I said, “I often like Bach but I don’t often like Offenbach!”
Is that just-a-cough-itch?
Would you lot give it a rest? There's nothing suite about puns. They are solo and undignified.
Do you mean we can't even do two-thirds of a pun? (i.e....P U)
I suppose two is the barest MINIMum, but naturally any number of thirds will do as long as you can get them in tune.
Yes, when I was younger and played more, I was always told that I played very well in turds.
Someone once asked Victor Borge to play something by Bach. "Which one?" he asked. "Johann, Sebastian, or Offen?"
Dearest Sander, my curiosity has been awakened. Were they major or minor turds?
What a waste!
It was said in science class that a poor conductor is an insulator, but I personally believe any poor conductor must secretly be a violist.
Kennedy: Thank you for the kind words. So your comments really struck a chord. Yes, my father was a constant punster, and that's where I picked it up, and he was always telling me to wipe that smile off my face and don't be late getting to school or I'd always be turdy.
No proof required, Kennedy. I admit to being a violist. Someone once claimed that violists can't play thirty-second notes. So I played one.
Bach to the original topic, why did nobody seem to think that Victoria's reply was something to mull over?
