Thanks for clarifying all of that wonderer!

I've spoken to my musical "partner in crime" who has agreed to write some

We'll probably write something over a very common progression, (like the
I-VI-II-V progression) so people will instantly be able to identify with the
track, but will make sure it is clearly about Fedora and the all the
features you mentioned.

This will also make it simple to adapt to any style (Swing, Dance, Pop, Rock
