If music is, indeed, distilled emotion

Then Ravel's Bolero is a dirge leading up to his own execution. As much as I admire Blake Edwards, he got it all wrong in 10 making it erotic.

May be the saddest piece of music ever written. Hard for me to imagine it as anything other than the theme he would have written leading up to his trip to the Guillotine. Even written 150+ years after that era.
