This takes me back to 1971.There was a pirate radio ship, RNI or Radio North Sea International, moored off the Dutch coast (though it also moved to the English coast for a while), which played the Waldo de los Rios version of this extensively. Due to the airtime it got on RNI the track ended up topping the charts in Holland and reaching the top 10 in the UK. Listening on medium wave wasn't always easy - the UK government broadcast a jamming signal, a constant beeping, so you had to position your receiver to get the maximum RNI and the minimum jamming. Anyway, for me this track (and also Band of Gold by Freda Payne) will always bring back fond memories of RNI and all its DJ's.

I was thinking of this tune the other day, but it was the "pop" version by Waldo De Los Rios which was a substantial hit in the UK when I was a kid. Spooky.

Now listen to the entire symphony keeping that it is variations on the dumpy tune. It's extraordinary—that's the genius of Mozart.

Its called Outnumbered! Damn I used to play that game all the time. You are in this television station and go in and out of rooms looking for the Master of Mischief's hideout. When you are in the hallway this music plays and there is this robot that you have to zap with a gun. Now whenever I hear Mozart's Symphony no 40, that is what I think about.

There used to be a game you could buy in any well-stocked sheet music store, I forget the name of it but it was about Mozart. The way it worked was you rolled a pair of dice, and a particular musical phrase was associated with different dice combinations. You won the game by writing a longer Mozart composition, or something like that. The point was that just by rolling dice you were putting together actual Mozart compositions, like a theme from this symphony or that horn concerto. Could you do that with any other composer? Certainly not with just two dice. Mozart was all formula, hardly any inspiration. People like his nice melodies and feel like it's uplifting and all, which is great, but the reality is that hideglue down there is right: he was very prolific, but if you want originality in that time period look to Haydn. Just my opinion, obviously.

If you're THAT sensitive, I'm surprised that you even listen to RP. You might be missed. :wave: I too am not a huge 'classical' fan but this just rocks! It's conventions are way different but the innovation and passion of this work were likely just as innovative as we might attribute to our favorite songs here.

And a laughable one at that. Reminds me of this scene from Manhattan where Diane Keaton and Michael Murphy cut down some intellectual greats in order to sound super sophisticated: Yale(Michael Murphy): (to Mary) "Gustav Mahler? Hmmm, I think he may be a candidate for the old Academy... " (to Isaac) "...Oh, we've invented the Academy of the Overrated - for such notables as Gustav Mahler..." Mary(Diane Keaton): "And Isak Dinesen, Karl Jung." Yale: "F. Scott Fitzgerald..." Mary: "Lenny Bruce! We can't forget Lenny Bruce now, can we? And how about Norman Mailer?" Isaac(Woody Allen): (disgusted) "I think those people are all terrific, every one that you've mentioned. What about Mozart? You guys don't want to leave him out. I mean, while you're trashing people..."
