Traditional in commercial music and industry?
I noticed recently that the music to the theme to MASH appears to be the same as the turn to the hornpipe ‘The Golden Stud’ raised up a whole step.
Is this a coincedence due to the limited nature of notes and chords in deriving melody and accompaniment, or more likely an awareness of traditional music?
A march that ‘c’ recently submitted reminded much of an airline commercial that I remember from my childhood. Are there other examples of traditional music in commercial industry?
I’m from the US, despite my last name and the priest that baptized me, so I probably should offer to differentiate at this point for sake of my socialization?
