One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever, but I'm pretty sure it was used in a Woolite TV ad in the early 70s.

A stray cat followed me home one evening.

I took her in, she was afraid and rather ill. I put Erik Satie Gymnopedie No. 1 on. 

Gradually she mellowed out and began to purr. 

She was my best friend for nearly 20 years.  

Whenever I hear this, I can't help but think of her and always get tears in my eyes.  

I called her Rozsa.  

 Wow. You've reminded me of our beloved Sheba, who we had to put down a few years ago, age 23. And now with Erik Satie playing I'm starting to get a little choked up myself.

Selon un témoignage du peintre Fernand Léger (1881-1955):

« Nous déjeunions, des amis et lui dans un restaurant. Obligés de subir une musique tapageuse, insupportable, nous quittons la salle et Satie nous dit: « Il y a tout de même à réaliser une musique d'ameublement, c'est-à-dire une musique qui ferait partie des bruits ambiants, qui en tiendrait compte. Je la suppose mélodieuse, elle adoucirait le bruit des cou­teaux, des fourchettes sans les dominer, sans s'imposer. Elle meublerait les silences pesant parfois entre les convives. Elle leur épargnerait les banalités courantes. Elle neutraliserait, en même temps, les bruits de la rue qui entrent dans le jeu sans discrétion. » Ce serait, disait-il, répondre à un besoin. »


 
Thus Satie invented ambient music. As quoted above (merci philipr!), Satie said what was needed was a kind of "music as furniture -- music that would be part of the ambient sounds." And he was humble about its purpose: to "soften the sounds of the knives and forks , without calling too much attention to itself." His music is sublime - the more so for its humility of purpose.

I so wish, for classical music, that we could get beyond just listing the composer and the name of the work. This ain't just a pop record whose performer is the same as the composer. To those of us who love classical, these things matter. There are hundreds of recordings of this piece, and the performer deserves a credit. Otherwise, thanks for playing it!

I am walking to my local library this evening to take out "The Banquet Years" a reading assignment from a great artist/teacher Dale Henry, back in '80's School of Visual Arts...Satie, Rosseau and Paris in the 20's, it is a marvelous book (Shattuck?), then maybe I'll watch "My Dinner with Andre"!

Bless dear Eric.  His music was generally written for , about and in rememberance of his childhood sweetheart for whom he did .... whats the correct word, court?, date?, get off with?     anyway, she dumped him soon after.  

he died quite young, broke and possibly heartbroken.  reflected in his music I think.
 
I was intrigued by this so I looked him up on Wikipedia, but can't find anything to this end. Could you possibly be thinking of someone else? Satie lived to the age of 59, whereupon he died of cirrhosis - after enjoying great success, fame, and the acquaintance of several major figures in the arts.

As to the song: Wonderful.

Now, what about the other great Eric?
