And the difference would be a movie

And the final question from the theme week. A sitter, I think. [ late night question, excuse the grammar]

Composer A made a very popular tune B to remember the fact that his nation’s troops defended against the warring forces.

Band, C , released a monstrous song D, which is a tribute of sorts to B, because of its name, and a section of the guitaring being similar to B.

A, is the first opera by B.

A is loosely based on the various facets of life of an über-famous 19th-20th century icon –  X.

a popular ‘cola-wars’ ad, shows X in a dilemma over which beverage is to be chosen, as one of the tracks from A is playing in the background.

B is a very prominent 20th century composer, still very much alive, known for a style of composing, which involves repeating a small amount of music over and over and over and, well you get the point.

Give me B, and A.

B is a much older creature. The maker of many a musical dramas, he’s particularly known for a certain ring, and a particularly ominous/climactic ride.

C is a famous jewish character from one of B’s librettos    ( The title of the play features a town, rather infamous in the Natzi scheme of affairs ).

The ideal personification of a pedantic critic, is C.

So, if you mix A and C in equal proportions, you’d end up with the fictional character D, who apparently didn’t die of an current shock once, because he was such a poor conductor 🙂

If you give me A, B, C and D , I’ll assume that you know the libretto’s name.

Fair deal, eh?
