This is the six note Intro Fanfare to a Song and Dance number. (Actually it's a somewhat shortened version of an older 16-note intro, the shorter version being the more common these days.) Three notes of the same pitch, then up a full, up a half, up a half. "Dadum dadum dum dum!" It's rather ubiquitous, and originates from [[OlderThanRadio vaudeville]] or perhaps even earlier. In vaudeville it was known as the "Minsky Pickup" (undoubtedly named after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minsky%27s_Burlesque Minsky's Burlesque]] and perhaps originating there), but it has also been called the [[BillBailey "Cockney Intro."]]

* BillBailey calls it "the Cockney intro" in his [[http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=1364660853 Cockney Music]] sketch (40s in), and as such it also opens the theme he composed for East London-set sitcom ''World of Pub''.
