Beethoven's best
Has to be one of my all time faves by Beethoven. ♥
I love Beethoven I love the way moonlight sonata sounds at night
Actually it makes me think of when life hard and then you get a grasp of hope

I played moonlight sonata when I was little. It is beautiful.
This song is proof that Ludwig Van Beethoven still lives...

This song always gives me the chills it's so beautiful. Wow. Why did Ludwig van Beethoven have to die?

I love it... Like I'm drifting away, trying to find something. Because that something is a mystery. A mystery that I need to know.
Gotta love them classics, am I right?
Wonderful execution. A very emotional performance.
wonder why he choose C# minor, this is guitar friendly key
The sadness that brings out of me is .......... there is no words that can explain it.
Deffinitly relaxin for me its a therapy session..
I love playing this piece on the piano it's filled with sadness and curiosity!! Amazingly first piece I played on a grand piano it sounded beautiful!! :D
This was beautifully done but it evoked feelings of sadness; for me at least.

Has great feeling. Not always easy to do with this piece.
This was played at my great grandmothers funeral, makes me sad but its also so peaceful and beautiful.
Sadness overflows to a river of lost loves. A toast to love and the passion brings the stars above to comfort our soul this perpetual evening
I absolutely love this song, it somehow always brings me to tears. It somehow just brings this longing sadness to my sould, its like painful beauty. if that makes any sense...Idk I just love it.
i adore this song. drifts my mind into a dramatic moment or something not sure but it sure drives me into another dimension of my soul lol

When you listen to this song, you drop what you are doing. You stop for 6+ minutes and just soak in the subtle arpeggios and the tranquil mood this song brings.
i really like this song on rainy days :)
Probably the most beautiful classical piece ever written !

This song/sonata basically fueled me to learn to play the piano.
Just stop whatever you are doing when this song comes on and take a few minutes to let the music flow through you.

This song made me fall in love with classical music. It is hauntingly beautiful.
You have to close your eyes while listening to the "moonlight", hope your not driving!
it moves me to the point it hurts..
i meditated to it today to see if i can release ...
and when i opened my eyes...
it was all clear to me.

one of the best songs written.

This a beautiful song....ever y t i m e it comes on it makes me stop what ever I am doing so I can pay attention to each emotional note.....It projects you somewhere else...quiet , misty, and cool...maybe sitting by a lake at dawn or wandering the woods. Thats what comes to mind for me.
