a little day music  
The songs from Chicago? Are the most pervasive earworms *ever*. Except for perhaps "Mack the Knife."

::holds palms to sides of head, gives a Munch scream::

So, I thought "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" was this haunting adagio piano piece, but I've listened to two clips from different sources and it appears not to be. Does anyone know what I'm thinking of?

the Danse Macabre?

It was actually the Moonlight Sonata, as Nestra figured out. But thank you for playing! ;)

DAMMIT! I WAS GOING TO SAY THAT!

always last to the party...

"Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" is a Mozart piece that's kind of bouncy. Very well known.

Are you possibly thinking of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"?
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 06:33 pm (UTC)
YES! Thank you so much! :>D

Are you thinking of the Elvira Madigan concerto-- also Mozart, also piano, and the really famous movement *is* an adagio and fairly haunting if played that way?
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 06:35 pm (UTC)
Hmm, haven't heard of that one--must look it up! It was the Moonlight Sonata. :)

haunting adagio piano piece

Well, that narrows it down... :)

Hey! You could do an lj phone post and HUM IT TO ALL OF US!
nestra on December 23rd, 2004 06:29 pm (UTC)
Oh, this! I vote for this!
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 06:35 pm (UTC)
But you guessed the right piece, so I'm saved from embarrassing myself!
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 06:34 pm (UTC)
Ohmygod--I totally *just* had that thought as I was walking to the break room. Hee. I was going to say, "Hmm, you know, I should do a phone post and hum it badly for you." *g*

I thought "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" was this haunting...

Not very haunting, no. ;-) Hi, btw. :-)

Are you thinking of "Clair de Lune" or some Chopin or "Moonlight Sonata" or ...?
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 06:36 pm (UTC)
Moonlight Sonata, yes! :>D

I'm thinking Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

Gosh, you guys are good. Yes! Hee.

Damn. People already beat me to it. I knew immediately that it must be Moonlight Sonata. My absolute favorite piece to play on piano.
Anna S.eliade on December 23rd, 2004 07:23 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, you play! I'm envious. I always wanted lessons as a kid.

I'm having self-indulgent thoughts of Spike being all melancholy, his long fingers stroking across the keys...

I don't play as well as I'd like. I didn't get lessons until pretty late in life and I haven't had a piano to practice on in some time. I hope to get a new piano once my partner and I are settled in a few years, though. I really miss playing regularly.

I figured, like others, that you meant Moonlight Sonata (first movement, as the others are not as calm). But you could have meant Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music."
