    Another is the Jackie Gleason's theme song which he wrote - "Melancholy Serenade"


    Brian Setzer "Hollywood Nocturne"...


    And then we have this...one of my favorite Eagles-related tunes...


    And the other Route 66 song...

    ............
    From low E -to high E:


    Cm9 ..... x3103x
    _______

    Amin7/ b5th ..... x0101x
    ------------

    Gm7/b9 ..... 43333x (3 optional on hi E)
    -----------

    B9b5 ..... 34444x (4 optional hi E)
    --------


    On a couple or more of the chords I'm bad at naming them-- but hopefully you get the idea!!

    "ISN'T IT TRUE that a minor chord is merely an inversion of a different major chord?

    ISN'T IT TRUE that a flat 6th is just an augmented 5th?

    No further questions for this witness.

    The defense calls Mel Bay to the stand."

    (gasps and murmuring fill the courtroom, judge pounds gavel.)

    Whattaya call an attorney who likes to fly his plane upside down?

    An Inversion Lawyer.

    I'll see myself out.

    This type of music always sends me looking for Raymond Scott stuff...like this one:



    And, of course:



    BTW, Raymond Scott's drummer was John Williams Sr., father of John Williams the composer.

    I was just watching yet another episode of Perry Mason and they opened one scene with the first few bars of the melody of Harlem Nocturne. Not kidding!
