Twinkle, Twinkle, E-F-G

Something a little–OK, almost completely–different today. I just wanted to do something before I come back for 5-a-week.

This is a little song I came up with a few months ago. I decided that it’s a good present for the start of the new year.

About the song… it’s (hopefully) not news to anyone who grew up speaking English that the songs “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and the alphabet (or A-B-C) song have the same melody. Stranded with nothing better to do, I decided to combine the two into the amazing song you see below.

Now I know my little star

Next time won’t you what you are.

Obviously there are many ways you could change and improve the song, but this is the version I came up with. I liked it the straight-forward structure, even though its grammar a little off.

I hope 2008 will be good to you.

The song remains the same

The first time I blogged, I wrote all my own titles. The second time I blogged, I borrowed them all from songs. The first form seemed vapid, the second was interesting and poetic, if a little opaque.

This time I hope to use headlines that are a little more useful, if not randomly poetic.

I don’t know what else will come here, but the first thing I must do is change the hideous default template.
