Are you xylophiliac? If So, Login Here.
Nov 8th 2007 9:50AM FYI: The word xylophone is from the Greek "xilo", meaning wood, and "foni", meaning sound. Therefore wooden instruments of this type are called a xylophones, whereas metal instruments of this type (Glockenspiels) are called Metallophones. There have even been instruments such as these made with stone. These are called lithophones.
