:When those first four notes started their repeating
march, I saw all these little gremlins with pitchforks
running around in this field. Nice day, nice weather,
beautiful field. All these gremlins. They were trying
to bite people's knees off.
:DON"T LAUGH!!! That image just keeps popping into my
head whenever I hear that piece.
Darn, I'm not going to be able to listen to this piece again. What an appropriate vision.
I had something else like this happen recently - we played a concert with Neil Sedaka, who had arranged several great arias from Puccini operas with his own words. Now I can't ever hear these arias without thinking of his incredibly trite words, sung by his small thin voice - ruins the whole thing.
