I don't know about you, but sometimes I hear a piece of music - normally on an advert - and think "Blimey, I KNOW that....but I don't know what it's called, or who it's by." This is, naturally, a bit frustrating. Most of the time, for me, it's classical music, as I wouldn't know my Ludwig van Beethoven from my Ludwig Wittgenstein.
So, I thought I would try and remedy this - to try and expand my musical library a little. After doing a lot of Shazaming (ignore that if you don't have an iPhone), a bit of digging, a bit of Googling and Youtubing, I found quite a few of these pieces that had annoyed me for years, and bookmarked them. However, as I have nothing else to blog about, I thought I'd share them with you all.
If you're a nerd like Dan, chances are you'll look at all of these videos and think "Well, I knew that." Well, bully for you, but I didn't, and it may be that others don't either. If I've helped out one reader by doing this, I'll be delighted. And if you don't recognise any of these at all (I'd be surprised) then don't despair - Val Duncan will write another stupid letter soon and I'll go back to my usual bloggyness.
Until then however, let's have some music!
Good luck getting that last one out of your head!
