Beethoven given a Walter Murphy Disco treatment

Though he may now be known mainly for his instrumental scores for shows like Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, Walter Murphy had his first bout with fame back in the 70s.

Released at the peak of the disco era, A Fifth of Beethoven combines the first movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C Minor with a disco beat that made this song one of the genre’s most popular dance classics. But don’t be fooled: The Big Apple Band is Murphy himself. Despite the fact that Murphy played most of the instruments featured on the track, the record company felt the illusion of a band would be more marketable.
