I don't know.  As a member of the University of Texas Longhorn Band in my college days, I have played "The Eyes of Texas" countless times, probably in the thousands of times, and exactly the same notes, and participating all these years in the Longhorn Alumni Band, countless more.  It's been nearly 50 years.  We never get tired of it, or bored.  Of course, it is not just a song, but a way of life.

Maybe that's the ticket!

I am not a musician, Jim.
Neverteless, my listening experience is that mpst bands repeat the
same notes again and again.  Only occasionally they differ.  And the
trad audiences request St. Lous Blues, Sweet Georgia Brown, etc., ad
