A little story about the Mixolydian and Dorian modes. They have a lot in common, especially the fact that they both have "la te" (a major sixth scale degree and a minor seventh scale degree.) The difference between them, of course, is that while Mixolydian has a major third scale degree, Dorian's is minor.
Yes this is intended to be fun. It's also intended to be pedagogical. Remember the song, and you will never forget the hallmarks of these two modes, nor will you confuse them.
Ms. Mixolydian likes her latte
And in the evening she likes wine and beer,
But if she wants to go out with Dorian, they stick to latte...
'Cause bars cannot serve minors here.
He's got a minor third scale degree...
Can't drink no alcohol.
So Dorian and Mixolydian just stick to latte
So they can mix it up all night.
