• I didn't, but then I already was aware of this.
  • I've heard about that before. I hypothesize that that abc song was made up after twinkle, twinkle little star as a learning tool.
  • I didn't sing them!! I've already heard this before!! And I would say it is because it is easier for kids to remember it to a tune they already know!!
  • The tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is often used as a memory tool for small children. Singing the ABCs to that tune is typical. Another one commonly used is the phone # song. Insert your own home phone number to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and teach it to your preschooler. It helps them learn that too.
  • It is their basic melody line. Lots of songs share a melody line in one way or another. The score of Les Miserables is compiled of other nursery rhymes played backward. Born free, is star wars backward. When we create, we all tap into an infinite pool of possibilities and the combinations often over lap out of our history or the residules of our psychie. Many modern singers songwriters have taken from Rochmonanoff, Bach, Motzart Listen carefully and the Biblical axiom in Ecclesiasties will ring true in that it says... "There is nothing new under the sun."
  • Now I'll be singing that some in my head the rest of the night. What other songs are based on that tune?
  • They are not the same tune.
  • Because different people used the tune.
  • Originally a French tune, "Ah! vous dirai-je, maman" was translated to English and even composed as variations on a tune by Mozart.
