Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Use my Amazon Portal
"You don't look different,but you have changed.I'm looking through you,you're not the same!"
Continuing meade's Rubber Soul theme, I nominate "You Won't See Me."
What about "Invisible Touch" by Genesis?
"The Light" by Philip Glass
"Cold as Ice." "Ice, Ice, Baby."We need some classical selections too!
"Crystal Ball" from Styx.
"Suggestions for what to play here?"Now, come on, Althouse! The choice is obvious.The song that's most applicable is clearly 'You're so vain'!Hey, Carly Simon never really said it's about a guy! And I bet you have an apricot-colored scarf somewhere...:P
"Cold as Ice." Ann poses a riddle: Can an instrument that looks as cold as ice still burn with musical passion? (Calaf suggests an answer about a different sort of instrument.)It's inconceivable that an instrument like that one could have much of a singing tone. Opera, the Beatles, or anything that contemplates piano music accompanying the voice, would seem to be a poor fit for an instrument like that. Perhaps in might sound good in some of the really bang-y passages in a concerto by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, or that sort of thing.
Schoenberg's "Kristallnacht Fugue"?
Caffeine: It's not mirrored. It's transparent.
"We need some classical selections too!"Sure. Like the 'Prelude to the Suite in D-Minor', famous from the soundtrack of 'Diva':)
John Cage's 4'33".
Alanis Morrisette"I see right through youI know right through youI feel right through youI walk right through you"But Paul wins. Hands down.
How about some glass harmonica music from Mozart.
Tower of Power: Below Us, All the City Lights.
Given the time when the picture was taken (and one's ability to see outside through the piano), I would suggest Moonlight Sonata.
stealthlawprof: Excellent! As a certified Luciaphile, I should have thought of that immediately. Wish I did.
Now that stealthlawprof brought in moonlight references, how about Clair de Lune by Debussy? [sound at link]
Does it go without saying that it's a really cool photo?
How about On A Clear Day?
They should play a song I'm about to compose, called "This Piano Is Not Transparent".
"Plastic People" - The Mothers Of Invention, 1967.
What to play here?First recruit Burt Bacharach to tickle the keys. Song number one would be "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" vocals by Dean Martin. Frank and Sammy would come out later to join in on a medley of Burt's songs. Of course they would all be wearing tuxcedos.
"Crystal Silence" from Burton?
Does it have a special coating to deter fingerprints? Otherwise, to keep it looking good would be a constant battle.
-Your inside is out and your outside is in-Your outside is in and your inside is out-So come on come on-Whippens are such a joy-Hammers are such a joy-Look at my sostenudo flange-Look at my damper bars-Make it major make it minor-Everybody's got something to hide except for me andMy Kawai.Thank you, and I hope we passed the audition
I can see for miles and miles,I can see for miles and miles,I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles. [Insert applause here]
What a waste of perfectly good plastic.You could wrap a lot of sandwiches with that.
it's sooooo obvious!!Metamorphosis by Philip Glass
Of course, ladies, if you play this piano, you will have to wear one of your glass dresses....http://www.karenlamonte.com/images_dresses_largescale.htm(via www.dressaday.com)Us guys will just wear our glasses.
