Hotwire’s secret feature saves you money on hotels

Looking to save money on hotels? Try a hot deal. Hotwire won’t reveal the name of the exact hotel you’ll be getting until after you’ve booked but they’ll usually give you a clue that’s almost 100% correct. An example is when you we looked up Las Vegas hotels we were shown a hotel described as “4-star Casino Hotel in Las Vegas Convention Center – Country Club area” then later Hotwire states if you click the listing “Book soon! The last person got the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.” The rate was $45.00 per night! Incredible savings and not once out of hundreds of hotel bookings with Hotwire was the “last person got” hotel mentioned not booked. You can save up to 70% on rack rates!

Has music ever actually been destroyed through ignorance or repression?

Question by Kalibasa: Has music ever actually been destroyed through ignorance or repression?
I don’t mean “butchering” music through poor interpretation, or shoddy composing like you-know-what. I mean actually destroying music, for example by burning manuscripts or trying to eradicate pieces (even if it isn’t successful). Have you ever heard of anything like this?

I’m wondering, because it has happened many times with art and a few times with literature; I don’t even know whether it’s possible to destroy music, but it seems possible if the work is unpublished. Here are some of the worst art tragedies I’ve ever heard:

-The Russian Czars cutting up great medieval Flemish tapestries for use as seat cushions
-The Turks storing gunpowder in the Parthenon (yeah, it *used* to be perfectly preserved)
-The Vatican melting the bronze roof of the Pantheon in the 1600’s to make altarpieces
-The Iraqi Museum (don’t believe the US government- it was not just “a bunch of pots,” it was 6000-year-old masterpieces from the Fertile Crescent)

Has music ever been destroyed in such a way? Or do you think it’s impossible to destroy music in the same way as art? I remember something about Shostakovich hiding scores during Stalin’s purges, but I don’t know whether they were his own music or whether they were Bach’s WTC… ?

OK, thanks!, but maybe I should be more specific. I know about the Chinese Communists and Nazi Germany, but does anyone know if they actually succeeded in destroying all traces of the music? Even if China banned Western art, it didn’t “destroy” it- but the Soviets may have really destroyed great music. And the Nazis- ?? I doubt all those works were copied elsewhere…

[I forgot the Maya Codices! Destroyed by the Spanish because they were “Books of the Devil”- grrr… I agree on the Native Americans, but wasn’t the Lighthouse of Alexandria an accident? Still a tragedy though :)]

What is the background music that plays whenever “Scrubs” cuts to a commercial on Comedy Central?

Question by LSAT3434: What is the background music that plays whenever “Scrubs” cuts to a commercial on Comedy Central?
Whenever “Scrubs” cuts to a commerical on Comedy Central, this song plays in the background…kind of like a funk, bass-line groove (while they show a clip of Elliot and Turk doing their “handshake”). Just wondering if anyone knew if that was a section of a more well-known song or the name/artist. Thanks!

If ya know the answer to this question, then you know your music.?


Question by JiveSly: If ya know the answer to this question, then you know your music.?
A few years ago, Will Smith released a song called ” Just Cruisin’ “.
Although the lyrics of the song were his, the beat was not. Another song had been released some time before with the exact same beat. That song was probably called “Cruising” or “Just Cruising”.

Who sang the original song? If ya know this, you are good man!!!!
