"Snappy, the Little Crocodile" for 20er Organ
By Ingmar Krause

Being in Canada this phenomenon almost passed right by me, but as I just
read up on it, I simply couldn't help myself.  I've sent a "parodie"
(hint hint) version for 20-keyless crank-organ to the editor to be put
up at the MMD Sounds section for evrybody to enjoy.  :-P

  "sni sna snappy - snappy snappy snap ... ..."

 [ Read about the Internet success of "Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil"
 [ at
 [ The Wikipedia article says, "This phenomenon is claimed to refute
 [ the notion that sharing music over the Internet is harmful to sales
 [ figures.  The huge commercial success of Schnappi may not have been
 [ possible without P2P [Internet peer-to-peer] networks."
 [ Unfortunately I cannot find evidence that the copyright owners, 
 [ composer Iris Gruttmann and publisher Universal Music, have officially
 [ given free license to the world, so I can't publish Ingmar's cute
 [ version at the MMD Archives.  Please ask him for the MIDI file sample:
