Trying to think of the name of a song
« on: April 07, 2014, 03:03:16 PM »
Is there a site where you can play notes on a virtual piano to get help identifying the name of a song?
My sister called me with a song stuck in her head and she could not think of the name of it.  It  sounds to me like a national anthem or some kind of classical type college song (as opposed to frat songs).
Here is all I can offer to help anyone here to help me.  This is what I think, but could be way off base.
It seems like the first word is the name of a country or school, the second word is oh and the third word is the same as the first. 
DA da-da DA da-da-da, da da-da da da-da-da,   DA da-da DA da-da-da, da da-da da da-da-da.  DA DA DA-DA, DA DA-DA, DA DA DA-DA, DA DA-DA, Da da da da da da da da.
OK?
Thank you!
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

There are totally sites where you can play it using a virtual keyboard:

Or sing/hum into the mic and search:

I hope it is one of these, unfortunately I couldn't find a site that lets you play a virtual piano to identify a song Some National Anthems.

Edited to add that Surianne has great Google-fu!

Thank you! Maybe something will jar my memory  I looked for such a site but didn't find this one.

America the Beautiful?

edit- maybe not. When I went back and re-read it, it doesn't quite match up.

I think it's Pomp & Circumstance.

Maybe.

   Looking at the "DA-da-da DA-da-da-da..." line, I wonder if it's "Gaudeamus igitur"?

Yep, I was going to say "Gaudeamus Igitur" too.

All the "da's" match up!
