This is the correct title for Gymnopédie No. 3. When Debussy orchestrated numbers 1 & 3 from the "Trois Gymnopédies" in 1897, he reversed the numbering (No. 1 became No. 3 and vice versa). Since the orchestrations are perhaps more famous than the originals, it is a common misconception that this track is Gymnopédie No. 1.

  • I've heard that Satie had Obsessive Compulsive Dissorder, and on his death was found a large manuscript of paper with the same sentence written in it over and over. So that explains the music.
