Here’s the intro…what’s the song?

Tuesday Trivia on a Monday this week…I have some news to announce in tomorrow’s blog.

Today’s video contains a piano intro that serves at least 3 well-known songs. Perhaps more – I’d love to hear if it reminds you of another song not mentioned in the below video…

And just to write down the technical part of what I discussed in the video…

The chord I played contains A and E – the 1st and 5th notes of the scale of A – this chord is called A5.

However, the chord of A major usually contains three notes – the 1st, 3rd and 5th notes of the scale (A, C#, E) and the reason I think the third (C#) isn’t played is because it features strongly in the first line of the melody of each of the three songs – and hence stands out more because it isn’t played on the piano at the time.

It will be interesting to see if this happens with any other songs put forward by you guys…comment wherever you see this blog or email to kieran@kieranquinn.ie

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
