The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-8 Utka ((Russian: Микоян и Гуревич МиГ-8 «Утка»), "duck") was a Soviet experimental aircraft. Built of wood, the aircraft was designed and built in 1945 to test the novel canard configuration. It also used a tricycle undercarriage, the first used by the design bureau (OKB). It was modified to test a variety of vertical stabilizer and wing tip configurations and later used as a liaison aircraft for many years by the design bureau.
Nicknamed Utka ("duck"), as the word canard (referring to its small forward wings) is French for "duck", and the Russian term for canard wing is "duck" scheme (схема "утка"), the MiG-8 was an experimental aircraft designed and built by the OKB to evaluate the stability and handling of the canard configuration in conjunction with swept wings. This design has benefits in a jet-powered aircraft as it leaves the rear of the fuselage clear of interference from the jet's exhausts. To test the concept the MiG-8 was powered by a Shvetsov M-11 five-cylinder radial engine, with a pusher propeller.

Hi Donald,

Turn up the speakers on your computer, activate Shazam, Google Now, Cortana, or Siri and ask the phone, "What song is this?"  It might know.

I'm typing this on my phone, so it won't work for me, because I can't play a video and turn on the other apps at the same time.

Outside my scope of knowledge unfortunately.  I'm assuming you've tried Shazam, Google, Cortana, and Siri?
