day 10 – a song that makes you fall asleep
Beethoven “Moonlight Sonata”
This would be on my top 10 list of favorite songs…a very calming song.
Some say that Randy Rhoads would have left Ozzy Osbourne’s band to focus on classical guitar had he not died in the early 1980s. While I would have missed his hard rock stylings (and do miss them greatly…Zakk Wylde is great, but he’s no Randy Rhoads), I’m sure he would have been very successful in the classical genre as well.
I found this cool video of some dude playing “Fur Elise” on YouTube this morning. I could probably play about 10 seconds of the song, but this guy goes a full 3:20 and does a great job with it. Check it out.
I’ve heard some electric versions of the song also, but they are just not as pleasing to my ears.
