    Default Musical Quotation in Pop Song

    Can anyone tell me the piece that is quoted at the beginning of this video? This young lady has another song, "They," which is based on one of the preludes from WTC, but I'm blanking on this one.

    Are you sure that's a quote? It doesn't sound Classical to me.

    I would've thought so as well, but I was a bit flummoxed by one of her songs that is based on a Bach prelude; I just wanted to check here just in case. Thank you:

    And which prelude is it, if I may ask?

    I got it, it's Prelude in F minor (BWV 881). Choral version in this song sounds way better than the original.

    I don't know if I'd personally go that far, but I like the song. Her voice reminds me of Dido. Looking her up on Wiki, I guess I'm not the first to think that.
