The Song of the Key West Collared Dove…

… was, you recall, Sympathy for the Devil, Rolling Stones.

The wood thrush’s ee-oh-lay — which, now that the babies are here, I hear all day long — is the theme to Mission Impossible.

The ee-oh-lay notes start at fifteen seconds into the Mission Impossible You Tube. It’s those three strong notes that work through the piece, a leit-motif.

Here’s the wood thrush. Hear it?

    Are there red-winged blackbirds in Bohemia?
