I'm terrible at remembering the names of tunes that don't have words, and I get frustrated when one is stuck in my head and I have no way to track down what it is.
So I like to make up lyrics for them.
I think there are about 100 pieces of classical music that absolutely everyone knows through hearing them in the background in shops and films. Over many years I've worked out what most of them are, and I've written words to about thirty of them.
Two of the tunes are in this video I made for a competition in 2010, telling the history and synopsis of the opera Carmen in 40 seconds.
