Hadn\’t known this

\”Ode To Joy\” by Beethoven, lyrics by Schiller. The Romantic composers 1785 piece was written to inspire revolution but was used to celebrate Adolf Hitler\’s birthday and is now the EU\’s official anthem.

Those damn Nazis get everywhere, don\’t they?

    Schiller wrote the words in 1785. He wasn’t a romantic composer because he was a poet.

    Beethoven wrote the tune later. Want to bet he wasn’t a romantic composer?
