Audio Test

If your childhood took place during the 1950s, you may be amazed to discover that the following 58 seconds of music are hard-coded into your brain and that you can hum or whistle along without missing a note or a beat. If you’re of a later generation, you may still recognize it, and there’s a decent chance you’ll laugh out loud when you hear it.

    I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never heard that. What is it?

  2. Alex Krislov Says:

    I’ve heard it, but I can’t figure out where. Come on, Steve, don’t be a flirt. Tell us what it is!

  3. Wayne Says:

    If it wasn’t wired into my brain before, it certainly is now. What it is?

  4. Matt M. Says:

    Sounds like Raymond Scott to me. But it’s no “Power Plant”.

    I don’t recognize it either (born in 1961, here); sounds like it’s from an earlier era than the 50s to me, more like the 20s or 30s. I’ll guess it’s the theme from an early tv show – maybe one we didn’t get here in Canada?

  6. Brian Spence Says:

    Never heard that before, but it is kinda catchy. I like the little audio player plugin. Pretty classy and unobtrusive.

  7. Starocotes Says:

    Laurel & Hardy comes to mind, or as they are called over here: “Dick und Doof”

  8. jb Says:

    It’s a Leroy Shield composition, associated with both Laurel & Hardy and the Little Rascals.
