"Harry Kim had just performed Mozart's Clarinet concerto in A before a packed house at San Francisco's old Davies Symphony Hall. He had played well and the crowd was applauding wildly.

'Thank you,' he said, keeping his tone humble. 'And now I'd like to play something for you that I first heard on a planet called Sardalia in the faraway Delta Quadrant.' " [Harry Kim is dreaming.]

music Dathomir -99927 B.C.E. Wolverton, Dave. The Courtship of Princess Leia. New York: Bantam (1994); pg. 180. "'Princess Leia, would you like some relaxing music to help you sleep?'

'Music?' Leia asked.

'Yes, I've written a song,' Threepio said, 'and I thought you might appreciate it if I sang it to you.' His tone said that he'd be offended if she didn't listen.

Leia frowned, and Han rather pitied her. He'd never heard Threepio sing, but she couldn't imagine that it would be much good. 'Sure,' Leia said hesitantly, 'but, maybe just the first verse.'

'Oh, thank you!' Threepio said. 'I've titled my song, 'The Virtues of King Han Solo'!'

A musical intro with horns and strings began playing, and Han found himself a bit surprised. He knew that Threepio could mimic other voices, and he'd heard the droid give some nice sound effects when telling stories to the Ewoks, but he'd never heard music coming from the droid. Threepio did a rather convincing impression of a full symphony orchestra. "

"Then he [Threepio] swirling in dance, doing a soft-shoe that scraped and echoed over the stone floors, and the droid sang in a deep voice that sounded an awful lot like Jukas Alim, one of the galaxy's most popular singers:

He's got his own planet,
Although it's kind of wild.
Wookies love him.
Women love him.
He's got a winning smile!
Though he may seem cool and cocky,
He's more sensitive than he seems,

(Chorus sung in accompaniment with three women who all sound like Leia)

Han Solo,
What a man! Solo.
He's every princess's dream!

Threepio ended with a flourish of horns and drums and a tap routine, then took a bow to Leia. Leia just stared at him with an expression somewhere between bewilderment and horror.

'Hey, that's pretty good,' Han said. 'How many more verses do you have?'

'Only fifteen so far,' Threepio said... "

"
music galaxy 1982 Adams, Douglas. Life, the Universe and Everything. New York: Harmony Books (1982); pg. 26. "If anybody had asked him he would have said he was humming the first line of a Noel Coward song called 'Mad About the Boy' over and over again. It would then have been pointed out to him that he was only singing one note, to which he would have replied that for reasons that he hoped would be apparent, he was omitting the 'about the boy' bit. He was annoyed that nobody asked. "

"In 2105 he had operated the background music system aboard a huge colonizing ship on its way to one of the Deneb worlds. In the tape vault he had found all of the Beethoven symphonies mixed haphazardly in with string versions of Carmen and of Delibes and he had played the Fifth, his favorite, a thousand times throughout the speaker complex that crept everywhere within the ship, reaching each cubicle and work area. Oddly enough no one had complained and he had kept on, finally shifting his loyalty to the Seventh and at last, in a fit of excitement during the final months of the ship's voyage, to the Ninth--from which is loyalty never waned.

What program would he choose tonight? He'd often lost himself for hours playing trombone with a simulated New Orleans jazz group. But ever since the appearance of the remarkable female holofigure Minuet in that program--and her reemergence in the elaborate scheme of the alien child Barash--the purity of that music had been compromised.

'Earth,' Riker found himself saying after he had keyed instructions to the holodeck computer. 'Memphis, Tennessee. Year, 1925. A honky-tonk called Stumpy's.' "

Screenplay by Braga & Moore.; pg. 13. "Without a word or a change in his taut expression, the captain tapped a control on his console; blessedly, the opera dropped in volume. As it did, Riker felt his face relax and realized he had been wincing.

'Wagner?' he asked, with the faintest of smiles. The music played softly on, speaking to Riker of utter loss, destruction, despair--the ironically appropriate Gotterdammerung, the twilight of the gods.

Picard did not return the smile but replied curtly and without humor. 'Berlioz. What do you have?' "

It's an old song from the mid-twentieth century, he said. I'll play it for you sometime.

I am sure that will not be necessary,
Tuvok had said in reply, and the entire crew had burst into laughter...

B'Elanna had been amused, but for a slightly different reason. Tom's knowledge of the trivia of his people--centuries-old material--always startled her, and made her feel a little inadequate. She knew about the major things that every Klingon should know from Sto-Vo-Kor to the entire... life of Kahless. But she didn't know the details--the popular music of Kahless's day, for example--and if truth be told, she didn't really care to know.

I was fortunate in that mine was jazz.
