The Butt Song, from a 500-year-old painting

This is no ordinary song. Not even an ordinary song about butts. The Butt Song, as it’s now known, was discovered on the 500-year-old masterpiece The Garden of Earthly Delights, which dates back to 16th century. The notes for the Butt Song were found on the right hand side of the painting, on the butt of an angel – I mean, where else would you find such angelic notes? Take a look at the video to hear the notes played out. I bet that girl’s wishing her 15 minutes of fame wasn’t because of angel butt music, huh?
