    Default Choose a piece to fit the descriptor

    This is an idea I had a little while ago. It may have been done before, and I'm not sure how it'll turn out, but I think it's worth a shot. This will be a game. The rules are very simple:

    Choose an adjective or adjective phrase. The next poster chooses a piece (preferably a somewhat obscure piece) that they believe fits that description and then chooses another adjective / adjective phrase. These words or phrases don't have to be descriptions that you'd normally associate with music.

    We'll start easy: joyful

    Edit: please include a video link if possible along with your selection.
