For those of you that don't know, O Fortuna is the theme from Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" It's the beginning second movement, I believe, but I haven't had the adjacent movements for some time to be sure. Having watched Jackass: The Movie at my friends behest, I was reminded of something... Why is it that nearly any visual, when accompanied by O Fortuna becomes very, very cool? I know that's horribly scientific, but when you think about it, it's used quite often in trailers and montogue scenes to good effect. I think it's probably the most used piece of classical (or orchestral, I'm not sure how old the piece is) music aside from the many, many movements of Beethovens 9th. In film, anyway. Yet I bet not a lot of people know the name of this piece. Anyone else share this sentiment? I mean, I know others (and myself) that get huge goosebumps every time it's played.
