Not who you think

I've known for quite a while that the riff in Sting's "Russians" is actually by Russian composer Prokofiev - the Romance theme from the Lieutenant Kijé Suite.  So it was no surprise hearing it yesterday during ABC Classic FM's Russian weekend.

But I was completely taken by surprise to hear The Right Stuff soundtrack suddenly pop up during today's music.  Turns out that bit of the music (which I really love and so hence love the soundtrack to that movie) is actually by Tchaikovsky, and not by Bill Conti!  Mind.  Blown.

Then again, my favourite bit of the Babe soundtrack is actually by Camille Saint Saens and not by Nigel Westlake, who did the rest of the soundtrack.  

I forgot to turn on the radio before 12pm today so missed Peter and the Wolf.  Oh well.
