My family just loves this fun GEICO commercial depicting a classical triangle soloist gone wild. Have you seen it? Click here: Triangle Soloist Geico Commercial
I have a playlist entitled More Cowbell. Sometimes I do wonder, though, if the guy playing triangle in Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” was paid by the ding. Or maybe they were trying to make up for an underutilized percussion instrument in popular music. I love castanets and cowbells in pop music, don’t get me wrong! But, every single measure seems a bit much. What do you think?
Last year I wrote a Monday Music post about the triangle solo in a Billy Joel song. Check it out here. (Video link at the end of my post.)
And here’s that playlist- because I know you want it.
