I have no piano handy now, but this may be closer to the actual bassline.

Subject: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids title theme
I'd like to know the origin of the little piece of music which was used as the title theme to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, has shown up in Pinky & the Brain, is the breakdown of the song "Rhythm Section Want Ad" by They Might Be Giants, and I'm sure has appeared numerous other places. It starts with a with a minor bassline which would be something like this:

C D# D F E D D# E

and then comes in with a higher, minor melody. Sounds like it could possibly have been played as a Big Band tune. I'd really like to know the origin of this little tune, it's been driving me nuts lately!

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.
