Yesterday I got this email:
I gotta say, I have always wondered what it was.
Dr. Wiener Breath! What's the name of the track they use in the background of the brilliant Ken P.D. Snydecast?
Last week I did a post on the SModcast that Ken appeared on. On that episode Ken referred to the bed as "the music that epitomizes Dana Snyder."
But what was it?
I asked Twitter, because Ken says it always knows the answer... although Dana says Twitter never gives answers so I emailed Dana directly. Maybe he knew.
I quickly got some info from a user on Twitter who goes by the name Chancerubbage:
I also received an email from Dana who said it was "from an old lp" that he had given Plumey years ago "called something like 'I Love French Music'."
Now at this point I tried to see if my Blackberry music identifier app knew what it was. It didn't. So I downloaded something called Tunetanic. That didn't help.
Chancerubbage told me he tried Shazam. No dice. But then he wrote me this:
He then clarified it was a "Quintet." Yeah, I don't know what that means either.
The version from the Bob Creash Quintet sounds like it's slightly slower or at a different pitch than the Snydecast bed, but I am pretty sure it's the same. You can find it on iTunes or download it free from Shoddity: LINK
