This will probably take the cake for the most vaguest information given to help identify a song, but it’s all I’ve got short of humming the tune in to sound recorder and saving it as a wav file and letting you all listen to it.
Imagine saying the word “Ha” in a whispered voice. Almost as if you are saying it while exhaling, absolutely no voice in it whatsoever.
Now string two of them together so it’s like ha-ha, but strain the second ‘ha’ out a bit so it goes ha-haaa.
That’s the only “lyric” I can give to this song. It appears at the start of it, after some single string guitar work. I think it may also appear during the rest of the song as well.
I got the impression from the OP that there were more lyrics, but they could only recall the opening.
I saw Laurie Anderson in Chicago shortly after “O Superman” came out, and she uses something called a vocoder or somesuch instrument which distorts her voice as she channels it through a violin.
The ha ha’s are pretty quickly said, it probably takes a second to complete the ha-haaa. Both ha’s are said in the same tone.
This is pretty vague, I know. Is there a good PC Composer program I can download and put together a rough tune with? I downloaded one before but it assumes you’re an expert in music. A program that allows me to use the keyboard keys to punch out a tune would be good. Some trial and error and I should be able to get it.
