I got this one from a student composer the other day:

A bit absurd how far these kids will go, isn't it? grin

Yes, I really did see a student write this piece and then deny having heard the "Inspiration". grin

Do they think everyone else is stupid, or what? I'm not fooled by their little trick in bar 10, either. ha

He didn't even bother to transpose it. wink

As Erik Satie noted in the 2nd piece of his "Desiccated Embryos" -- an absurdly close rip-off of Chopin's Funeral March -- "This is intended to evoke the celebrated Mazurka of Schubert". Actually, I do give the -- uh -- composer credit for changing the rhythm cadence to 6/8. And, hey, it IS easier to play!
