I just watched a bit of it - the waltzing is wonderful, but at some point I know the orchestra will launch itself into the Blue Danube Waltz - a piece I met my Waterloo with at the age of 10.

It brought my piano lessons to a grinding halt and still makes me break out into a cold sweat when I hear it! Mind you, I think my teacher was being unnecessarily vindictive when she wrote my mother a note which read 'I find it impossible to continue Christina's piano instruction as the chasm between her and Strauss has widened into an abyss'.
