There was a (very minor) hit it the early '60s, top 40 but definitely not top 10, which took it's melody directly from the opening of Mozart's Simple Sonata (K. 545). I remember that it even had the trill in the 4th measure, which certainly wasn't commonplace in pop music back then (and I suspect, still not now).

But I can't remember the name of the song for the life of me, and have had no luck searching for it online. Any old timers out there remember it?

Could it be: In an 18th century drawing room - Raymond Scott Quintet

Thank you. Interesting piece! But it's not the one I'm looking for, which was "Top 40" am radio stuff, and it had words, sung by a young woman.

Hi,

I just heard this song while I was grocery shopping and did a little internet searching to figure out the title. If it's the song I just heard, then it's called Somewhere and it was recorded by The Tymes.
