OKC student discovers butt music 

Twenty-year-old Oklahoma Christian University music student Amelia Hamrick is the first to transcribe the tune. Bonus: She’s also the first to play it.

That’s
right, she’s the first to play a song that’s hidden in a centuries-old
painting, according to a news release posted to the university’s
official website. And she gets the humor of the butt song discovery. Ah, youth.

“Another
OC student and I were looking at the painting one night,” Hamrick was
quoted as saying. “We noticed, much to our amusement, music written on
the posterior of one of the characters, in an area that’s easy to
overlook. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the
second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants from that time
period.”

Case closed. Hear it at http:// goo.gl/k018zt.
