I’d just finished playing the board game Lord of the Chords that my friend Ann was leading (and which Anitra won). Anitra was taking a “bio break”, Ann was off to another game, and I was walking down the hall when I overheard a request for music suggestions. Lord of the Chords is a game that leans heavily on music theory, so I was in the right frame of mind to help out.
Here’s the ensuing conversation:
Him: I need a classical music piece for the heroes coming in to save the day in my D&D campaign. Any ideas?
Me: How about the William Tell Overture?
Him: I don’t know that one.
Me: You know, the theme for The Lone Ranger?
Him: Before my time, old man.
Me: [Pointing at his Clockwork Orange t-shirt] Uh…the music from the sped-up threesome scene in Clockwork Orange?
Him: Oh, that song! Good one.
From now on, I’m referring to that piece as “the Clockwork Orange sped-up threesome scene song.”
