Iglew talk23 February UTC. There is an entire section for this song being used in Western films. While you do occasionally hear rags in saloon scenes and the sort, if no one can name a single western that features this song then I'm going to remove the entire section. The song is frequently used to give an old-timey feel and there's not much encyclopedic about speculating further. Isn't this a typical song for people who are learning to play the piano assuming they can play this? I find absolutely no mention of it.
It's associated in the UK with snooker? I'm a snooker fan in the UK, and it doesn't scream "snooker" to me. And the song most people connect with snooker is not The Entertainer, but Drag Racerto the extent that whole comedy routines are made about it.
As the blooper section is quite often the bit that many people remember, being the lighter part of the coverage, The Entertainer became associated with Snooker in public consciousness. It has also been used in a number of snooker based video games including Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker Amiga and Championship 3d Snooker C64 for winning tournament, Entertainer Rag.
Just begun to wonder: Is the tune supposed to represent an entertainer, as in a person who entertains, or to be an entertainer, as in the tune itself does the entertaining? Indeed, does anybody alive today know which interpretation Joplin intended?
One of the games had this song as the background music. The other games on the joystick were pretty well known, so it might be relevant to put on the page. I can't for the life of me think of the name though. All that comes to mind is "Maury", but I'm fairly certain that's not it. You played as a mouse, it was a non-sidescrolling platformer were some cat was the enemy. Revision: I'm completely wrong here. The game I'm thinking of is Mappy, and Entertainer Rag song is borderline ragtime and not even close to the entertainer.
But I am certain that I heard it in that kind of setting. I'm going to leave this up in case it jogs someones memory An excerpt of The Entertainer the 'AA' part of the structure according to the article is used in a poker simulator called American Poker 2, when you get a combination that yields high enough score most commonly the 4-of-a-kind.
This gambling machine and it's uncountable amount of hacked versions was very common in pubs throughout eastern Europe and possibly elsewhere too. The volume in Mame is wrong as of this writing, the tune plays too quiet while sound effects are too loud - on the real machine, they are closer to each other, at least as much that you can hear the tune on the default volume even next to a busy pub noise. In Mame, the tune is almost entirely Entertainer Rag.
So I'd consider this information worth adding to the article. Mappy uses a completely different tune although it does indeed sound ragtime inspired, but it was an original composition. There are some ragtime piano arranges of it on youtube if you look, though, some are pretty good.
There are currently two versions of the Entertainer on this page in the info box without explanation of the difference. There has been one Entertainer Rag a while and another was added by this edit. I removed the original recording we had on there because it was a performance taken from a "non-live" midi file - i. It is Ok that there is more than one version of the piece on this page without explanation? The argument in favour of retaining only the "human" performance rather than the step-entered one is that it is a person's real interpretation of the piece rather than a direct copy of the sheet music.
Do we need both? Separately both volumes had been on the chart for 64 weeks. Template:Commons category. Template:Scott Joplin. Sign In Don't have an account?
