I fell asleep and woke from dreams to the sound of Christoph cooking dinner and humming the circus song...and I wondered exactly who wrote that creepy song in the first place.
Wikipedia is my friend.
The song is called Entrance of the Gladiators, and it was written by a Czech composer as a military march.
Imagine falling backwards in time to a vision of Czech soldiers marching to battle with that song as their soundtrack. And people wonder why circuses are sinister...
