I've had this bookmarked for about a year now ... and play it often. It's just gorgeous, beautiful.

I think I got it from someone who posted it here last year.

I don't understand your specific kind of crazy but I do admire your total commitment to it.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

I love the surprised and grateful looks on the faces of the people in the plaza. Ode to Joy is a such an uplifting piece of music.

Here's another flashmob but very different music.

A few years ago I was in Macy's in Center City Philadelphia, when there was a flash mob. It was an opera company and they did Handel's Hallelujah chorus. It was one of the most moving things I've witnessed.

Beautiful!

Music, art and knowledge must in some way be free to everyone. And that is exactly what many who created the internet said.

Bless them Smile

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

I love these flash mobs sooooo much, and the classical music ones always move me to tears. I'm a big sap. {#emotions_dlg.wub}

It's been one of my deepest desires to be out and about somewhere, ANYWHERE, when a flash mob breaks out. I can't think of much that would bring more unexpected joy to one's day!
