    No doubt the above title for a musical composition will seem odd, and inappropriate, therefore, I will explain how it happens that this queer title is adopted. During my earlier school days the school which I attended boasted of having the best football team in the city. The most prominent member of this team was a young man named Thompson. He was prominent not only as the greatest player on the team, but for being the funniest. He was never known to be quiet in his waking hours; always on the move, usually dancing, he naturally attracted attention. One day during a game of football, Thompson made one brilliant play after another, and at every play a lad standing near me would make all sorts of exclamations, usually attaching the word “scandalous” to the sentence. I learned that he used the word “scandalous” to praise and show his appreciation. During the intervening years I have thought many times of Thompson and that lad. As the recollection of Thompson’s dancing would invariably intrude when I was writing this piece, and I would find myself writing to his shuffle, I decided to call it by his name, and have used the word “scandalous” since it is the name he is known to this day.
