    I am sorry, but I think that this tune is a load of old rubbish.

    Where is the beat? Where is the rhythm?

    It just seems to be plonking, scratching strings - and all over the place.

    How did people bring themselves to dance to this stuff in discos of the time?

    Not happy. :emoji_angry:

    As someone who is a history buff and coming from a musical background, I like it. Yes, it's a mess of a tune, but to me it's fascinating to hear something like this bringing history to life, in a way. It's the same as modern brewers using beer recipes from ancient Egypt or chefs remaking dishes from the past. It makes learning about history more palatable for those who might not otherwise be inclined to study it.

    But as far as putting it on my phone and jamming out to it? Nay, good sir. Not nearly enough Galileos.
