this got me out of bed

The whole time at Zions I could not get this piece out of my head. Weird. And then this morning I woke up to it again. Enough already. Sheesh.

Here's Andre Rieu and his adaptation. I would post the original orchestral version but you remember it's over 18 minutes long, people. Once this melody gets stuck in your head you're done for. Nothing to do but give in to its madness. Which is what many music scholars say Ravel was when he wrote it. Listen for the sudden key change at about 6:10. I defy you to remain un-frenzied.

Maurice Ravel's Bolero.
