Very much like^
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Now....

    Tinker Polka, don't know why, we didn't dance to it last night but I woke up hearing it and had to look it up to get the right name!!!

     Then I found all these different versions:

Like the group and their setting!!

These guys, too...but they're so dour!!

OK for orchestration, but too slow to really dance to with a good partner:

This was the most like the tempo I had in mind:

Anyway, now I'm not hearing it in my inner ear anymore....but probably someone else is....

"Never My Love" by The Association, used to good effect in the season finale of Outlander and stuck in my head ever since.

Alanis Morissette - Ablaze

I can't help, it's so personal that it makes me choke up a little every time.
I know it's a genus.

Chopin Nocturne Opus 55 no. 1, because my student is playing it and I've fallen in love with it.

It's like a <<marche funebre>> or <<pavanne pour une enfante defunte>> in my mind--that's how I'm teaching it, anyway.

Gloriously beautiful, sad and wistful...with a positive, picardy third-like ending.
