I have a problem. I have to find out the name of a piece of classical music. The only thing that’s stopping me is that I don’t know the name of the composer. (That’s a pretty big problem )
The music is a very common piece, heard in commercials and movies, which leads me to believe it could be from one of the popular composers like Bach or Beethoven. I know next to nothing about classical music, so I don’t know where to start. I need the music on CD before 10/15 because I want to play it at my wedding. I have scoured the Internet, listening to wavs and MIDIs, but I still can’t find it. It is driving me crazy, I am desperate. I am willing to email a wav of myself humming the song to anyone who thinks they might be able to identify it. I am terribly shy, so the thought of humming to anyone kills me, but I will do it if I must. I know if I called my DJ or a music store I wouldn’t be able to hum it ‘live.’ I’d just clam up or not be able to stop laughing.
Straight Dopers, please help this frazzled bride.
