"Could It Be Magic" by Barry Manilow.

OK, more pop tunes inspired by the classics: Barry Manilow co-wrote this '73 ballad with Adrienne Anderson for his debut album. He re-released as a single in '75, peaking at #6. Based upon Chopin's Prelude in C-minor, Op. 28, No. 20. Melissa Manchester figures in the lyrics.

Yesterday's answer: "The Song Of The Volga Boatmen". From my dear friend Dr. Andy Romeu: "I think of it as a funeral march, and cartoon music." Strife!
