That is the name of the theme, and it is played at Lakers basketball games.

Subject: 2001 theme?
From your description this sounds a lot like the opening of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" a classical by Richard Strauss. It was the main theme for the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey". But I've never heard it used at sporting events, so maybe this is not it. You can download a midi file at

Subject: Triumphant Trumpet Song w/ Drums
I've got a difficult song to try and explain, but everyone has heard of it. It was used it "Cheaper by the Dozen" with Steven Martin and played as he flew threw the air to land on an unexpecting child.

It is mainly trumpets though is accompanied by loud drums. Goes a bit like this.

Bummmmm. (Higher) Bummmmm. (Higher) Bumm Bummm (drum drum drum drum drum drum).

and it repeats. It is often played during basketball team introductions or at other sporting events. It is very triumphant and dramatic. Can anyone name this tune??

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
