Here’s variation #2 – Twinkle Twinkle.mp3

(Go here to get variation #3!)

After writing about this song (here), I set to work recording it – you may have been one of the few lucky ones to have downloaded the now rare (and deleted) version that I posted earlier today – I tried to clean it up, and offer this version now – Mozart did 12 variations on this tune – I’m on my second, and may try a few more before it’s all said and done. It’s an interesting song – weird that I could do a bass line that isn’t too far from Pachabel Canon in D – Anyway, enjoy this variation – I’m going to shoot for at least 10 more. Look for them to pop up every now and again.

(…MORE than a few months later, I finally got to number three…check it out here!)

Oh yeah, here’s the entire poem…if you wanted to keep singing –

The Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!
When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Then the traveler in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark,—
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
– Jane Taylor, 1806

  5. No problem! By the way, I like the 3rd variation better…and, to put in a shameless plug, if you have young English students, try downloading my song “ABC Blues.” You can get it on iTunes – or through my website (www.steveandfriends.com) – I’ll be happy to send the lyrics along.

    All the best!
