This might seem really odd, but I was wondering what you feel when you hear music you've played in band. The reason I bring this up is because last year, we played a medley of songs from the movie Top Gun, and now Jessica Simpson has remade the love theme, Take My Breath Away.
I hear that on the radio and I turn up the bass just to hear the accent on the and of the third beat while counting out loud as if I was a snare drum player... and my dad looks at me weird.
Maybe it's just me... but hearing music that I've played in band is really weird for me. I've got this odd connection to it.

Hasn't really hapened to me yet... Although, I do hear songs in one movie and hear that same song in another movie, but it is a totally different genre...

Oh, well....

It's rather funny. Trumpet players (at least at my school) have this habit of sorta playing the air trumpet on their fingers. I do it all the time. So like if I hear a song that I've played on the radio, I finger along and stuff. You just hear me saying, "Hey cool I played that once!". Definately gives you SOME kind of feeling.

I drive my mom crazy with the Harry Potter music every time we watch it (yay for middle school) by counting off the rests and naming the notes.

I know that's happened to me quite a few times, and though I can't tell you what songs they were, I do remember that I usually hummed along to it, or since I'm a trumpet player, following along with the trumpet part fingering it with my fingers.

More than often lately I've been finding myself playing songs again that I've already played. I played "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" with my wind ensemble and an honor band. I've also played John Williams medleys for the past 3 years, and "Jaws" and "Star Wars" have been in every single one of them.

Also, I've gotten to play songs for the first time that I've heard before previously, by other bands or by my band before I was in it.

Ive done that, but only with jazz. A band i am in plays very well-known pieces (sing, sing, sing/ tuxedo junction /sweet georgia brown / birdland etc.) so when i listen to a jazz station, ill hear the song and ?slide? my parts, which looks even wierder than fingering them.

I won't finger or anything, but if it's something really good, I will start to sing to it. On the bus, we were listening to another recording by a different band doing some of the music from our show, and then the whole bus just started singing along. It drove the driver crazy.

Hahaha, after playing a certain piece there is definitely a huge connection. Like this year, our marching band opener was Shostakovich's Festive Overture, and then for the PSYO Spring Concert, we played it was well, and I love it SO much! Plus, sometimes classical gets hard to listen to, so having insight to it definitely makes it more interesting. My favorite example of that has to be Respighi's Pines of Rome.

a couple times last year i woke up to pieces from our field show (dance of the buffoons and rhapsody on a theme by paganini)...my radio is usually set to a classical station...

i kinda thought i was going crazy.

I do it all of the time. There are some songs that I have CDs to that I listen to and I listen for that Euphonium line I played...only to realise that there are no Euphoniums in full orchestras... :cry:
