Kent Jones at MaddowBlog shared the following, and I'm cheerfully ripping it off:
Too many renditions of church hymns to a watered-down version of the 'Ode to Joy' theme (they are to Beethoven what Red Delicious is to apples) sit like a cloud between me and a decent recollection of just how wonderful a piece of music the Ode to Joy is when done right. As I said in comments over at MaddowBlog, this blew away the cloud for a bit. Hope it does the same for you.
What's going on in everyone's weekend? I think the kid and I are going to brave the Farmer's Market tonight; after that, I think we'll either be in the water, or inside staying cool.
