This week's contestant is Perry Smith from Schenectady, NY. The hidden is song is one of those that was on the tip of my tongue -- I could hear it, and it had a sense of familiarity to me, but I just couldn't place it. It turns out to be very well-known, but is so wonderfully well-hidden. The hidden composer style is one of those where it's clear the era, and there are a few composers who it could be -- but it's just not an area I know well enough to decide which one it is. And so, I didn't get it. It's a tough one, but the challenge is enjoyable.
