Does the Merry-Go-Round or Carousel play music like a pianola with a roll of music? Or are the songs built into it's design?


I recorded a few songs in a busy park in London.

Anyone know the names of the songs?

Merry-Go-Rounds sometimes have whats called a BAND ORGAN which is a type of player pipe organ and use either music rolls or folding books to play music, they were also used in skating rinks untill electric phonographs became in general use.
In europe folding books were the norm but over here music rolls were the most used form.
I love the sound of a good WurliTzer.

I always felt that a lot of "our" music gave me the feeling like I was on a merry-go-round, especially the songs with the tuba as base!

...Spinning at a moderate speed, breeze blowing across my face and hair, carefee, light, free...

Gosh,

I wonder if Laughland can search down deep into his mp3 grab bag and find my favorite Merry-Go-Round song?! Don't worry folks, he knows the little looney tune of which I speak :-)


_ _ _



My name is Daffy Duck,
I worked on a merry-go-round,
The job was swell,
I did quite well,
'Till the merry-go-round broke down!

The guy that worked with me,
Was a horse with a lavender eye,
Around in whirls,
We winked at girls,
'Till the merry go round broke down!

Up and down,
And around it we sped,
The dizzy pace,
Soon went to my head.

Now you know why I'm daffy,
And do the things I do,
I am a screw,
And you'd be too,
If the merry go round broke down!

Can't identify that remaining song, so I'll just add this one to enjoy.

On The Merry Go Round (1932)


Ian, does this midi version resemble the Daffy Duck song?

Let's see.... ah yes!

Daffy Duck singing "The Merry Go Round Broke Down" from the film "Daffy Duck and Egghead" (1937)



As a bonus... I stumbled across a neat site with the details about a restored carousel in Washington DC's Echo Park In addition to the historical details they have a bunch of carousel music you can listen to there...

FWIW, the last two unidentified tunes sound familiar but I can't recall their names... sad.gif

Thanks Laughland!

Somehow, I just knew that you would come through with this one :-) ...(woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo!)

And Don, yes, that midi is the same tune (but you know that by now...)

I guess there couldn't be any music more "Summer-y" than carousel music ... so I think this thread is catering to the Summer thread as well ... and the livin' is easy!

3:07-3:50 - Everything Today is Thoroughly Modern from Thoroughly Modern Millie

Everything today is thoroughly modern,
Check your personality
Everything today makes yesterday slow.
Better face reality,
It's not insanity,
says Vanity Fair,
In fact it's stylish,
to raise your skirts
and bob your hair.
Have you seen
the way they kiss in the movies,
Isn't it delictable
Painting lips and pencil-lining your brow;
Now is quite respectible
Good-bye, Good-Goody Girl
I'm changing and how
So beat the drums cause here comes
Thoroughly Modern Millie Now

Everything today is thoroughly modern,
Bands are getting jazzier,
Everything today is starting to go,
Cars are getting snazzier;
Men say it's criminal, what women will do,
What they're forgetting is
This is 1922!

Eddie the Collector

There's a big concert size Band Orgon at this museum (J.A Cooley Museum) here locally. I just love to hear it! In (one of my) fantasies, I've hooked one up to an alarm-clock, and I wake up at 6AM to the sound of a concert size Band Organ!!!

The one in the museum looks like this:

In the middle of "You Made Me Love You" at 2:50 there's a hint of "Somebody Stole My Gal", no? The only thing I can think is maybe it was adapted from a Jolson medley arrangement.

Great find, by the way! If any of you find yourselves in New York, you MUST ride the carousel in Central Park... The music was so cheerful, I couldn't help but buy a ticket and hop on myself! No shame, LOL...Fun times!
