It certainly didn't take much of Ludwig Van's brain cell's
to come up with his 5th symphony.
As genius as he was,it came to him like nothing.

Where's the proof that he wasn't inspired by someone else in the first place.

I have it on good authority that he stole that from two dogs he had in his room at the time, who barked just in time. The smaller one 2 times and the bigger one 1 time.emoticon

BTW: It was originally composed as a piano piece for four hands.



At the last minute he remembered that humans don't have four hands so he rewrote it emoticon

emoticonNah, it was because a friend joined him during, today we would say writing session, a work out or something. And together they played with four hands

Of course you know the Marx Brothers film where Harpo and Chico play four hands?

"You Bet Your Life" was Groucho's tv show that originally aired during the 50s. But I'll take a guess which Marx Brothers movie the piano playing comes from - and it's (sadly) been years since I last watched a Marx Brothers movie - "A Night at the Opera"? Though I know that Chico's piano playing and Harpo's harp playing were shown in a lot more than one of their movies...

After the 3 Stooges, the Marx Brothers are the 2nd greatest American comedy team of all time - in my non-humble opinion, of course! emoticon

Yeah, that's *the* problem here Nighthawk.

Nobody stays by the thread. Me inclusive emoticon.
I know forums you get punished doing so.

But at least back to your question. It has been a competiton and this one is closed now.

STOP POSTING! (I have the 100) emoticon


To be honest. I don't like it but think it's damned hard to "educate" people not doing it again.
