Win Wally's Harmonica!!
Nov 12th, 2006 at 10:44pm
 
...
 
Ok here we go, as promised.  You will be competing for the items shown above.   I have been assured that this harmonica was used on a Little Steven's Rolling Rock & Roll show last month.

Question:
What song, in The Romantics current set list, does Wally play the key of D harmonica?


Important Rules:
1. Do NOT post your answer until AFTER 12 noon EST. Saturday, November 18, 2006.  Any entries posted prior to the actual start time of the contest will be disqualified.
2. Please play fair.  We discourage anyone with "insider" information from entering.
3. You are allowed ONE entry per member.  Be sure of your answer as you will not be allowed to modify your post once it is up.  
4. Members joining after 11/7/06 are not eligible for this contest.    
5. Entry posted first with the correct answer will be deemed the winner.  Please post answers directly on this thread.
 


GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

If you know what key certain songs are in and if you know how harmonicas work, it's not too hard to figure out, so I'll lay off.

This is such a bad tease. I know the tune, but will not be near the web on that date and time. To quote the great philosopher C.Brown aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!

Good luck to those with quick typing speed and internet connections, and don't play the thing.

If cloning is really a possibility, there should be enough Wally spit in the harp to make another Wally, then the Romantics can go on for another generation. Hey, if your going to clone someone, make a worth while person, that's my view.

we were trying to give everyone an equal opportunity to win.  you can always pm me your answer and i can try to pinch hit for you but since i am still on dial-up, i doubt i would be of much help!

Wow...This is a tough question... I've never thought about what keys the songs were in! ;-P

At most shows, I'm listening while taking photos, but I never stopped to think about the keys...

HMMMMMMM!

I think those of us who are or were muscians have a slight edge.It's been so long since I played this song live I had to get out one of my guitars and find my harmonicas to figure it out! Wink

Hmmm... Welll, Kevin seems to have some scoop!

I wish I had a turn table--I don't have access to one (that works) and most of my old albums are on vinyl!

I guess Iris is doing research on this one!  I think more people should be venturing some more guesses before time runs out!  Or Wally might get to keep his DNA for a while longer!

Okay,good thing I forgot to answer at 12:00 today,because my musical instincts tell me that my first choice for an answer was probably wrong.It's been years since I played harmonica and I forgot how difficult it is to find the right harmonica key for a song.
So,I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the answer is: DEVIL IN ME  Huh

Hm!
I was talking to my hubby and thought that maybe it was Devil in Me, but he didn't think so... LOL... So much for knowing what keys the songs are in!

Taking any guess is better than no guess at all!  As the old saying goes, "You can't win if you don't play!" Smiley
