When my wife was a teenager, she heard this piece of music on a Breck Shampoo commercial. She just loved the music, but had no idea who the composer was or what the name of the piece was. Occasionally when she would go into music stores and she would hum the music in hopes that someone would know what it was. Finally almost 20 years later, she found someone in a music store who knew the piece was by Erik Satie. Upon further research she learned that Erik Satie was from Honfleur, a seaside town she had visited when she lived in Normandy, France.
