Most Beautiful Song on Earth

In 1975, a sci-fi novel called “Bid Time Return” (written by the same author of I Am Legend, What Dreams May Come, and a number of Twilight Zone episodes) followed playwrite Richard Collier’s growing obsession with the haunting image of a beautiful woman he had only seen in a decades old photograph. 
In 1980, Chris Reeves (of Superman fame) and Jane Seymore (Dr Quinn!) brought this time travel sci-fi fantasy to life in a film adaptation called 

“Somewhere in Time”. 

As a young child, this particular movie not only introduced me to paradoxical causal loops but also to one of the most beautiful pieces of piano music to strike human ear. 

“Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43” by Rachmaninov

It’s hard not to weep listening to it, especially at the swell. 

Listen to the YouTube video if you get the chance today. And link to your own favorite pieces below!
