Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Even though I could find no midi file for it, this seemed to be as good a choice as any for today's theme.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQxt0epZFOg - August October - Robin Gibb, 1970
"August October" is a song written and performed by English singer-songwriter Robin Gibb, the third and the last song released from the album Robin's Reign. It reached #45 in the UK, #12 in Germany and #11 in New Zealand.
The Italian LP Best of Bee Gees, Volume 2 has a mono mix of this song with a fadeout ending (at 2:25), but then it comes to a full ending seconds later. If this was to be a true mono mix, it was hardly used, as most Polydor divisions issued stereo singles, and Atco's mono single appears to be a reduction from stereo. Additionally, for the second time Gibb recorded an Italian alternate vocal.

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 08/07/12:
A couple is in bed sleeping when there's a rat-a-tat-tat on the door.
The husband rolls over and looks at the clock, and it's half past 3 in the morning.
not getting out of bed at this time," he thinks, and rolls over. Then, a
louder knock follows. So he drags himself out of bed, goes downstairs,
opens the door, and there's a man standing there. It didn't take the
homeowner long to realize the man was drunk.
"No, get lost. It's half past three and I was in bed," says the man as he slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tell his wife what happened and she says,
"That wasn't very
nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on
the way to pick the kids up from the baby-sitter and you had to knock on
that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if
he'd told us to get lost?"
So the husband gets
out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs.
The drunk replies, "Over here, on the swing."
