Little Dragon - Holy!

ME: The note that gets four counts is called the whole note. And it's called that because it takes up the WHOLE measure in a 4/4 time signature, not because it looks like a hole.

LD: OK, so it's not called a whole note because it looks like the hole my dad dug in the front yard that went too deep and he hit a pipe and then our toilets didn't work.

ME: Exactly.

I guess whether it's "whole" or "hole" somebody ends up having to hold it.
