In this installment of O! The Wonnerful Internets!: you know that music everyone associates with clowns and circuses, usually on calliope – the one that opens up that Leo Sayer/Three Dog Night hit from the ’70s called “The Show Must Go On”? Turns out it was originally entitled “Entrance of the Gladiators” (!) and is from a piece by the Czech composer Julius Fučík. (Circus people, it seems, call it “Thunder and Blazes” – which also has a meaning in the sexual underground frequented solely by clowns and undertakers, and which I surely will not elucidate here.)
That is all for tonight.
