Interesting that such an old simple tune (Erik Satie late 1800's) still captivates so well. I remember it from an obscure '60's movie.

Can anyone say Suzumiya Haruhi no Shōshitsu, they used this in the trailer. It took ME over half the song to realize what I was listening to, and then a few minuets more to figure out where I had herd it before. (course I was listening at a particularly low volume)

Sounds almost copied off of George Shearing's "It never entered my mind"...

I remember it from "The Velvet Gentleman," Camarata Strings, I think. Yes, it is Eric Sate.

I racked my brain to remember how i knew this, & was a little embarrassed when i realized it was Star Trek.

Colleen, I think that it's an original composition by Eric Satie (sp?). Blood Sweat and Tears also recorded it long ago (late 60's?)

Where have I heard this song?? I know it from somewhere in my past life as a music major....I don't recognize the name given nor the performer. I have no doubt it is original; but, it is touching on some distant memory. A true gift.
