I am searching for the tune Controdanza that appears on first CD by Phoenix. I have tried several tune directories without success. Score anyone? Thanks

If you put 'contradanza' (note the spelling) into abc tunesearch, a tune comes up. Is that the right one?

The tune does appear to be called Controdanza; at least that's how it appears in the track listings.

It appears on the album after the fire in a medley as: Da Road to Houll / Controdanza. I don't have the album (information is from websites), but on youtube there is an entry for The Road to Houll / Contradanza and assuming that's meant to be the same medley, this is the tune:

Fyldeplayer - let us know if this is the correct tune.

I copied the that to the ABC converter, and at first it wouldn't convert. So I removed a few blank spaces that had mysteriously appeared after I copied the above.

It converted most of it to sticks % dots. That's a piece of music that was in my beginning piano books years ago. Its title is lost in the mists of time, but I'm pretty sure it's a European folk dance.

Fyldeplayer, if you don't know how conversion works, let us know.

Here, hopefully without the leading spaces (my fault using <pre> tags) and better spacing.
