Good Rule of Thumb

So much makes sense now!

My roommate taught me a neat trick, which she learned from a book called Thief of Happiness, for identifying music from the 17th-19th centuries:

If it sounds like people bowing formally to each other, it's baroque.

If it sounds like people sitting in a cafe eating fabulous pastries, it's classical.

If it sounds like people falling in love or joining the army, it's romantic.

Try it. History of Music made easy!

(And I bet you thought this blog was only about dating and Israel!)
