Why did I try "flugelhorn" before I tried "French horn"?

Likewise. I think it's because "flugelhorn" is one of my favourite inherently funny words.

I remember this drink from my youth, flugel. Hey wait a minute... I actually have a little stuffed animal of the log on the end of my guitar (some sort of duck-like creature) and it is lying at my feet. For the first time in like 7 years I have taken it out.

What are the odds ! (I really just thought about the brand flugel first, before realising it was on my guitar !)

For those interested to get a visual Flugel

haha and their slogan is, let the duck out !

Edit changed the picture to just the logo. I don't know if there are any rules. But I thought it might be better to make the picture alcohol-free ;)

For some reason I’ve always thought that fiddle was some sort of a flute so this certainly was an educational quiz for me

Who the hell is Rebecca Black? Even after seeing the answer

I have no idea, the missus doesn't know her either. Could be her song didn't make it across the pond, or else it passed us both by (not surprising in my case, more so in the wife's).

You are both very fortunate.

You're not gonna believe this, but she grew up to: a) be unbelievably hot, b) actually have an incredible and well-trained voice, c) regularly release new music (both covers and originals) with accompanying gorgeous, well-financed, professionally-shot videos. (She's also appropriately horrified by "Friday" along with the rest of us.) Check out her YouTube channel. It took me a while to pick my own jaw up off the floor, but there it is.

The vocals on "Friday" are so poorly auto tuned that you can't tell if she has a good voice or not. Everyone just assumed she didn't.

I think it would be awesome if she had a legit career in music.

She was cute when she recorded "Friday." Doesn't look any better today. Was never gorgeous to the point of diminishing credulity. Don't care enough to find out if she can sing or not. :D but, I wouldn't wish anyone ill over one bad video. Except for "MAGIC!"... for all the times his stupid insipid wannabe reggae song has gotten stuck in my head all day he can choke on his own vomit for all I care.

I tried F* you for that question. I remember there being a song called that, not sure about the date or the artist though haha, but it was the first thing that came to mind with that question.

Feel fortisimo should work. That's how I recall it from orchestra.
Level 78
Jul 14, 2018
The simple version of how I was taught was that forte is loud, fortissimo is louder, and fortississimo is loudest. But it's more complicated than that, because an entire piece can be labeled fortissimo - for example, a military march - and in that piece, forte would be played much louder than in a piece labeled pianissimo - for example, a lullaby. So it is really a degree of loudness. If you played in orchestra I'm surprised you didn't think of forte first.

All of the above should work as they match the clue given. Sforzando should also work.
Level 62
Jul 17, 2018
Forte - written in a musical score as the letter 'f' - is the basic Italian word that in a musical context means 'loud'. Beyond that there is fortissimo (very loud), followed by humorous extensions: fortississimo (very, very loud), fortissississimo etc. to convey even louder dynamics. Some composers like Tchaikovsky even use as many as 6 'f's or more in the score. Sforzando refers to a strong accent or sudden emphasis at the start of a note, which may continue in any dynamic, not just forte. And it begins with the letter 's'.

Felix? Literally my whole adult life I thought his name was Fredrich Mendelssohn. Wow.
