FAQ: Why do you care about this, exactly?

Q: Why do you care about this, exactly?

A: I wish I could tell you. All I know is that at some point, I heard the SFCP enough times that I just started picking up on it without even trying. It's kind of like the Wilhelm Scream in the movies: you might never notice it, but once you become attuned to it, you'll spot it everywhere.

  1. There's your better name for this progression: The Wilhelm.

  2. Love the site, more people should care the way you do!

    On an aside, I always love to groan when I hear the "Hollywood Edge horn", not as famous as the Wilhelm scream but more prevalent, I think. Track 30 on this: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/cititrax-5/id426767021 - now listen out for it in most action films from the last 20 years.
