beethoven's ninth

i'm at the part where the chorus goes insane, chanting joyjoyjoy

(the symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony). The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. they were taken from the "ode to joy", a poem written by friedrich schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer. today, it stands as one of the most played symphonies in the world.)

sometimes, i squander so much energy on being foolish.
