The familiar hit tune from Delibes' Lakme, the Flower Duet, has turned up everywhere from British Airways TV spots to promos for a family of golf courses
Even people who say they never listen to classical music most likely encounter it nearly every day.
Tunes from the concert hall and the opera house often turn up in places where you might not expect them. In 1945, Frank Sinatra recorded the hit tune "Full Moon and Empty Arms" which you can listen to right here if it doesn't immediately come to mind. Its soaring melody first appeared more than 40 years earlier, in Sergei Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto.
In 1953, Robert Wright and George Forrest had a Broadway hit with the musical Kismet. The show was adapted from the works of Russian composer Alexander Borodin, and one of its tunes tends to overshadow the others. The melody to the hit song "Strangers in Paradise" was originally a dance number in Borodin's historical opera Prince Igor. After Forrest added the words, any number of singers took it up. Alfred Drake sang it in the original cast, and Tony Bennett helped to make it a pop standard.
I assumed that the best version I truly like is from "All Angles"... Very sweet and I loveit...
