There was a delightfully amusing mistyping in another thread which gave me such a great laugh that I thought I'd start a new thread in honor of it. I'll reprise that here and move on to others.

  • Mozart's Moonlight Sonata (Thanks, Jalapeņo. )


Although classical pieces are usually the best, a few from other genres can give quite a chuckle as well. Add others you find amusing.

  • Beethoven's The Magic Flute \:D
  • Smetana's "New World Symphony"
  • Sibelius's Peer Gynt Suite
  • Schumann's "Trout" Quintet
  • Dvorak's Fanfare for the Common Man
  • Rachmaninov's Nutcracker Suite
  • Leonard Bernstein's The Magnificent Seven
  • Lerner & Loewe's Oklahoma!
  • Stephen Sondheim's Phantom of the Opera
  • Marilyn Manson's Like a Virgin :rolleyes:


I limited myself to 10 since I could do this all night.

Since no one has any other musical misappropriations they like, how about Misconstrued Masterpieces of Art? MMOA -- that's funny already.

  • Michelangelo's Mona Lisa
  • Whistler's The Great Wave
  • da Vinci's Mother
  • Pollock's Sistine Chapel Ceiling
  • Munch's Girl with the Pearl Earring
  • Miro's Water Lilies
  • Escher's At the Piano
  • Picasso's The Swing
  • Raphael's Garden of Earthly Delights
  • Friedrich's Blue Boy

Mix the two and you could end up with:

  • Cherubini's Cherubini
  • Van Gogh's The Nose
  • Schoenberg's Object to be Destroyed:

  • Remington's Peter Gunn
  • O'Keefe's Blumenstück
  • Miro's Miroirs
  • Dali's "Dolly" (Suite)
  • Pollock's Polonaise
  • Rothko's Rodeo


And if I may venture into the literary arts:

  • Sun Tzu's The Art of the Fugue
  • Swift's Adagio
  • Grimm's Märchenbilder
  • Longfellow's "Symphony of a Thousand"


Okay...back to work for me... \:\)
