    how on earth do you expect an answer to a question that is simply so undefined?

    I'll tell you one thing, if there's not singing in it then it's not a song.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    Based upon the information provided about this piece including its sound clip, it is definitely the John Cage work titled 4'33"

    Aloha Master Krummhorn,

    That was quite wry of you - 4'33''

    Hi sunwaiter,

    Yes ... no notes are played, but there is a "score" without notes ... thus:

    Aloha Master Krummhorn,

    The original question of this thread made me cringe since not a single jot or tittle of fact or evidence was presented. Short of taking the *perpetrator* to the *scene of the crime* in order to loosen the memory how would the problematique be solved?

    Cheerio,

    Just to play along, I'm going to assume the OP means a piece used in movie trailers, since that's where tunes get recycled over and over again.
    Two pieces that I hear all the time in trailers are the main theme from Miller's Crossing by Carter Burwell, which is very uplifting, and the movement "Aquarium" from Saint-Saen's Carnival of the Animals, which isn't necessarily uplifting, but gets used constantly in trailers that are trying to convey "child-like wonderment", usually in a fantasy setting.
