Help me identify this piece of classical music from Looney Toons. Its the music they play for a scene at dawn with birds chirping. The only way I can describe it is to piece out the first 10 or so notes. Keep in mind the key is most likely incorrect but the intervals are. It goes like this (moving downwards on the scale until G then back up to D again. Sorry i'm not a musician so forgive the description): D-B-A-G-A-B-D-B-A-G-A-B

Does anyone know anything about iMovie 3? I've just finished creating a project, and when I play through in iMovie it seems fine. However, when I export it, it's like the volume settings are completely ignored. Music that I set at 10% is actually playing at 100% and is overwhelming the dialogue. There doesn't seem to be anything in iMovie's documentation about this, so I'm stumped. What am I doing wrong?

Another remembering question. Song lyric: "I think I've got blood poisoning!" An obscure band, probably in the early 90's, sparse and clanky percussive music. The vocalist is telling a story, not really singing, yelling perhaps, and repeating a lot of his sentences twice. [more inside]
