Late Night Stargazing

I adored Suede when they first arrived on the scene, buying all of their early singles and debut album on the day of release.

Tonight’s choice is the final track from their eponymous debut album:

Suede – The Next Life

The piano on that has always reminded me of something a little more high-brow, a piece of music I remembered hearing around the house often when I was as kid.

I was delighted when, a few years ago, I was watching an interview with lead Suedester Brett Anderson, where he confirmed my suspicions by revealing that it had been lifted from this, formally known as ‘Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor “Quasi una fantasia”, Op. 27, No. 2’, but more commonly known as “Moonlight Sonata”:
