I love these! I have always used different words, though, for the D-major theme in Schubert's Unfinished Symphony. "This is the symphony, that Schubert wrote but never finished." With those words, you will always know which of Schubert's symphonies you are remembering!


This one is not a symphony, so a little off-topic, but when I was first learning "The Swan" I would sometimes sing it and find that I couldn't quite get all of the notes right when singing. Using these words, though, forced me into the exact notes every time: "Who was it that said that swans have class? Have you ever seen one dragging his ass?"



Classical music is my passion and training; country music is just a guilty pleasure.
