    I've lost count of the number of times I've seen a musical item written up in the local paper, and the headline has had the phrase "so and so really hit the high notes" in it. Can anyone (please!) suggest more original headlines to go with musical items? It must be possible.

    Go ahead and suggest. We're all waiting with baited breath!

    Really, if this is all you have to worry about, I envy you! :eek:

    The worst one is when they say say the performance "reached a crescendo . . ." as if that is the climax :mad:

    Lol I always see "hit the right notes" lol! "Swindon young musicians hit the right notes with judges" "Pianist hitting the right notes with regulars at local pub " "Children hit the right notes with exam results" it never changes lol!!! :p And they think they're so funny ^_^

    What about
    'such and such is blowing their own trumpet'

    That one always annoys me intensely!!

    ''Band Tolled Off''

    The following headline appeared in (of all publications - The Sun!!!) back in the the early 80's -I think - when (some!) of our band decided it would be fun to dis-appropriate the cross channel ferry we were travelling on our way back from a weekend in France of its Ships Bell. Yes - a couple of cornet players shinned it up the flag pole and removed the ships bell from under the nose of the cap'n on the bridge!! Of course the bell was promptly returned after joyous celebration and much ringing in the coach on the way home and the perpetrators knuckles firmly rapped. Ah....the joys of youth!!!:oops:

    When you reach a crescendo, you begin to increase volume. When you reach the climax, the crescendo is over.

    My candidate" "Marching to the beat of their own drum" or "a different drummer".

    Perhaps there would be too many objections if the headline read 'band reaches ......'

    There must be a squillion tabloid newspaper headlines about Manchester Uniteds most talented ugly little thug that start by replacing the word "you" with "Roo"

    Roo little beauty

    Roo have to be joking

    etc...there's no telling when they'll bore of using that little gem.

    It's not just musical items. Guess what the news story was in my local paper that started off by talking about "reaching for the sky" and "high flying".

    The best headlines I have ever seen were both football ones. Alas, I won't be popular with a certain Glaswegian club for these, but there we are.

    They lost to a Swiss side - "Basel Brush Past Celtic"

    But the best ever was when Inverness Caledonian Thistle upset the odds by beating the very same team - "Super Cally Go Ballistic Celtic Are Atrocious".

    Laugh? I nearly keeled over!

    Only loosely connected to music, it concerned a missing woman who had been visiting a local night club (The Planet Earth in Hull). The headline....... The woman was last seen leaving Planet Earth.

    A classic.
