My own childhood piano lessons included quite a few of Beethoven's compositions, including his 8th sonata, known by the French title of Sonaté Pathetique. This is a rendition of its second movement, played (as it were) by Schoeder in the movie A Boy Named Charlie Brown.
Over a century after Beethoven died, rock and roll singer-guitarist Chuck Berry came out with a song named Roll Over Beethoven. In 1973, the Electric Light Orchestra took Berry's song and combined it with Beethoven's fifth symphony. If Beethoven ever heard this version, he probably would roll over.
