Crank It Up To 7 (solution)
by Paul Jeray
The B♭ trumpet is counted via the valve positions, in binary.
The piano is counted via mode, traditionally represented by a roman numeral I-VII.
Beats Per Measure
|Like “City of God” (Catholic Hymn)||Like “Solsbury Hill” (Peter Gabriel)||Like “Stars and Stripes Forever” (Sousa)||Like “Boom Boom Pow” (Black Eyed Peas)||Like “God Save the Queen” (Traditional)||Like “Mission: Impossible Theme Song” (Lalo Schifrin)|
|6/8 time||7/8 or 7/4 time||2/2 (Cut) time||4/4 (Common) time||3/4 time||5/4 time|
|To the haters, the takers, the liars, and all the vultures||It’s too late to apologize||Still I can’t let go||I burn, burn like a wicker cabinet||And show the world that they can’t stop the crew||No other place to go, I’ve got to get away, lets get away!|
|”Death Before Dishonor” by 5 Finder Death Punch||”Apologize” by One Republic||”End of the Road” by Boys II Men||”Inside Out” by Eve6||”The Crew” by 7 Seconds||”One More Minute” by Authority Zero|
|Trumpet:||oxx = 3||xox = 5||ooo = 0||xoo = 4||oxo = 2||xxx = 7|
|Piano:||V = 5||VII = 7||I = 1||IV = 4||II = 2||III = 3|
|Percussion:||6/8 = 6||7/8 = 7||2/2 = 2||C = 4/4 = 4||¾ = 3||5/4 = 5|
|Lyrics:||5 Finger Death Punch = 5||One Republic = 1||Boys II Men = 2||Eve6 = 6||7 Seconds = 7||Authority Zero = 0|
|TOTAL SCORE||19 = S||20 = T||5 = E||18 = R||14 = N||15 = O|
Indexing into the alphabet by total score for each measure, the answer is STERNO.
