My family and I love to have fun with music. Whether it be singing "Dixie" like a bunch of chipmunks, pretending that we are attending a Scottish wedding with all of our instruments ("Mairi's Wedding"), singing "In the Sweet By and By" Southern style, or trying to sing in octaves not meant to be sung by voices like our own; we love to have fun with our music. So in this Babiak spirit of musical enjoyment, I thought I would give you a special treat. You see, when my creative juices get running...well...let's just say, interesting things happen. :-) This song is one of them. One of the songs I have known for about ten years, one of them I just learned recently, and one of them I worte. (At least I think I wrote it. I have a tendancy to play things by ear that I think are original and then I find out that they really are not. I have changed the tune enough that I think it's safe to call it original.) See if you can figure out which one it is.
I have named it "Mood Swing," because each song switches the mood. (Rather self explanitory I think.)
Songs: 1. "Fluttering Leaves"
2. "Sonato Ops. 2 No. 3"
3. "Mapel Leaf Rag"
5. "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"
6. "Fluttering Leaves" repeat.
So I purposely did not put the authors. See if you can figure out which one is mine. In fact, for an even more fun challenge, see how many of the authors you can figure out.
If you think that you have guessed which one I wrote, see if you can figure out the inspiration behind it.
