Song Number 88

Song number 88 in our countdown of 100 classical songs is titled Vienna Life, and was written by Johann Strauss, Jr. (1825-1899):

PIANO
NOT PIANO

It is one of the longest songs I have posted yet, with a song length of 7 minutes and 31 seconds. It is 328 bars of sheet music, which took up 15 pages in the book. With all of the repeated sections it comes out to 432 total bars, which coincidentally is the same amount of bars in Manhattan.

It is impossible to be in a bad mood when listening to Strauss.
