Tune of the Day: Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life

arranged for flute and piano

This well-known song, also known as “The Dream Melody”, is sung in Act I of Victor Herbert's 1910 operetta Naughty Marietta.

The piece is used as a recurring gag in Mel Brooks' 1974 film Young Frankenstein.

Thanks to Steve for suggesting this song!
