We live in a terrace house and she has her fricking harpsichord upstairs but the noise of it travels. We normally can't even heare there tv but for the past two weeks every single chuffing night fairytale of frigging new York. Played badly. With cd backing. Over and over and sodding over again. I could scream.

Stealth boast-you have well posh neighbours. grin

Maybe they are practising for a concert ?

Horrible song to hear on repeat, you have my sympathies.

Still, it could be worse. It could be Cliff. grin

Not the worst song, but I'm not a big harpsichord fan, if I'm honest. My neighbours have to put up with Enter Shikari every evening, I'll move onto Rammstein come the New Year...

Ha ha hairy , to be honest I do have dubious music tastes so it might be payback!
mrschristmas I would not be "am I being unreasonable" if it was cliff- I would know I wasn't!!
sparkling they are definatly not posh...jut odd ......very odd.

This made me laugh, thanks for this, had a rubbish day. Usually its terrible tinny music, but no for you it is a harpsichord. Just lol.

This thread has brought a smile to my face on a rubbish day!! smile

waitingtobeamummy Mon 03-Dec-12 20:15:17

Ha ha santa I aim to please!

waitingtobeamummy Mon 03-Dec-12 20:18:18

boaty you can come and listen if you want as she is still going!

BoatysTinselSails Mon 03-Dec-12 20:28:14

Record it and play it back at 3 am outside the door! <evil>

waitingtobeamummy Mon 03-Dec-12 20:44:46

boaty she'd probably ask me to do a duet with her! They really are crazy people, I could write a book on their nuttiness.

Get one of those One Man Brass Band sets and start learning 'Stop the Calvary'? grin

I love Fairytale of New York and I am quite fond of the harpsichord (though I can never forget the description of its sound as being like two skeletons copulating on a tin roof), but I really don't think they go together.

Could you buy a Swannee whistle and join in, half a beat behind and slightly flat?

BoatysTinselSails Mon 03-Dec-12 22:16:59

<waits for tales of nutty neighbours>

waitingtobeamummy Mon 03-Dec-12 22:18:48

mooncup that would improve it smile london It's certainly an idea- for now we have beautiful silence, after an hour and a half, now we wait for tommorrow night!

waitingtobeamummy Mon 03-Dec-12 22:24:36

boaty : not long after we moved in they moved there shed and found a mouse nest but no mummy mouse. They left then out in a plant pot overnight for the mom to come back to. Unsuprisingly in winter they died but our cat got them and scattered there bodies all over the patio. I has to go out in dark with a torch and get rid of them so they didn't know (i know I sound mad) they still think the mom took them.

They insist there dead dogs spirit guides there new dog in all his decisions (and guided them to choose the name)

They insist on calling my husband by his middle name, no idea why.

They are odd.

"Unique", people can be much more interesting for neighbors..sometimes.
I think you are a very sweet person to protect them from the horror of the dead mice.
Probably the harpsichord can be connected to headphones. Ds used to love to a chord organ when he was 4, but we had him wearing headphones, we didn't hear a thing. Maybe you could go over there, and mention you can hear it and hope they don't mind you saying so, but it is a bit distracting, and would they consider wearing headphones?

OMG I'm crying laughing here at the visual of Skeletons copulating on a tin roof. Thanks for that Mooncup

Sorry for being unhelpful - but I'm intrigued by your neighbours' harpsichord. Is it an actual harpsichord - with three legs and two keyboards?

waitingtobeamummy Tue 04-Dec-12 17:26:39

I imagine so chocoa, she tells us about it so flipping often! Can't imagine It's huge due to the room size if that gives a clue?
