What is covered in Pollex Christi?
« on: June 01, 2017, 12:51:07 pm »
I'm familiar with a few of the pieces that The Residents cover in the N. Senada piece Pollex Christi, but I'd like to know as much of the source material as possible. I wasn't even familiar with the TV themes covered until I saw some descriptions of the album (including one on the official Residents site), but so far as I can see there's no guide anywhere on what pieces are covered in what order. Here's what little I know so far (in order of appearance):

Part 1 - Beethoven's "Fur Elise" (of course), [something], [something], Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana", the Peter Gunn theme, [something], [something]

Part 2 - [something], [something - this is very familiar but I can't quite place what it is, probably more Beethoven], [something], [something], the Star Trek theme

Part 3 - [something]

Part 4 - [something], [something], [something]

Part 5 - The Popeye theme (although it feels like the very beginning is Bach or something), [something], [something], [Beethoven again I think]

To my understanding, Bach and Wagner are also covered in parts of this piece. I don't know much about classical music obviously, and I was hoping there might be at least one person here who does. :3 In any case, thanks in advance for any help.
