    That's okay - the "camp hymn" for our Scout camp in central Wisconsin borrowed the tune of an old fraternity song for its tune. As a matter of fact, actor Mark Hamill's alma mater, Yokohama High School in Japan, uses the exact same tune for its school song as our Scout camp did!
    I believe that the modern-day term for this would be "sampling" - just like the "My country, 'Tis of Thee" has completely different lyrics, while it shares the same melody with "God Save the Queen".

    That's from "Genevi�ve de Brabant"

    You are correct, sir!

    This afternoon, while I was working on my ornaments, I listened to America's album Hideaway in my CD boombox.

    My brother and I listened to Christmas music broadcast on one of the Chicago FM stations while we decorated the house today.

    I remember back in 1989, when the East German Communist government fell, there was talk of making Masur the new president.

    English Suite #6 in D minor, BWV 811 by Johann Sebastian Bach. Not sure who is tickling the ivories in this recording since I don't have access to my iTunes here.
