    that prog classic “the sound of music” has a tune named “do re mi” which always sends me running for some MESHUGGAH or NAPALM DEATH …
    I'm a little surprised that ProgBear doesn't know this, so I'd say that he finds the title stupid despite knowing its meaning

    Actually in Continental Europe (or at least in the French and Dutch-speaking parts of it ) and in parts of Africa, everyone learns the notes that way, and have to learn the letters names later on
    (btw, the "ti" is a "si" in our neck of the woods and a minor note (black note on the piano) is understood as "bémol" and a major as a "dies")

    And in Germany the bémol is b and the b is h.

    “High-brow”? Seriously? It’s like they took it from The Sound of Music!
