So what song is it? 06:11, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

I believe it is the Main Theme from Jurassic Park. --Duhsn (talk) 06:13, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

E major, is a chord, not a note... 06:36, 4 February 2015 (UTC) You can listen to the sequence of notes here: (All notes the same length, and just guessing which octave each should be in...) 06:36, 4 February 2015 (UTC) Just because I want to get it stuck in your head :D, Added a bit to the beginning and end and changed octaves. --Duhsn (talk) 07:40, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

The image on this page is NOT the same one as on the actual xkcd page. The original comic does not contain the reference to E Major. Andries (talk) 07:42, 4 February 2015 (UTC)Andries

Is he rick rolling us? 07:48, 4 February 2015 (UTC) He must have agreed with your comment about E major not being a note and changed it. --Duhsn (talk) 07:54, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

"and his friends Mike and Caitlin appear to be becoming concerned about his choice of music"... really? I thought they were upset that they were getting spammed by a post every second or so? "and the notion that someone could become concerned about you based on a list of notes is even more ridiculous."... similarly, not so ridiculous if they're concerned about you spamming them with too many postings! Finally, "The comic's title alludes to the fact that you can "play a song" but can also "play a note." It may also allude to the visual similarities between the hash/pound/number sign (#) and the sharp sign (♯)."... I don't get either of these references. The hash/sharp comparison is cute, except that the sharp sign doesn't appear in the comic. I took it as a simple extension of the usual someone is listening to some song messages linking to searches for that song "on various online music stores" if you click on them... that is, if you click on a particular note, it'll link to a search for songs that include that note - equally as useless as posting the individual notes of a song in the first place. Extra-finally, I'd love to see Mike & Caitlin's reactions if Brian listened to anything with a glissando... Haven't made any of these as changes as I'm not sure they're more than just my own opinion. 07:55, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Okay, so I've redone the second paragraph for facts, but haven't touched any of the other opinion bits. 08:40, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
