Earbugs are my friend

Last night the intro to Go The Distance (written by Alan Menken, from Disney's Hercules) was eating my brain, so I sat down at the piano with my Sony Network Walkman plugged into one ear and learned the notes. Too many black keys, so I did what I almost always do, and transposed it into C. No more pesky black keys. Worked out the intro, sort of - it would take at least three hands, maybe four, to do it justice - and added my own left hand part. And discovered two things:

1. It is a very simple tune.
2. It has no bridge

This, and the fact that it is based on a myth/fantasy movie, makes it filk, don't you agree? :-)
