Music Monday # 9: Classical Gas – Mason Williams

This is one of those songs that I can’t remember ever not loving. I was probably exposed to it in the womb and have literally loved it all my life. Classical Gas is an instrumental piece of music that was released in 1968 on The Mason Williams Phonograph Record and later again on his album Handmade.

It is a common misconception that Eric Clapton composed and performed the song but according to the Wikipedia page, he never even recorded a version of the song. The confusion arose because Clapton performed in and was the music director of the soundtrack to the film The Story of Us which Classical Gas appeared on.

So enjoy this absolutely phenomenal piece of music.
