Today's contestants are Dick and Sarena LaVine from New York. I thought the composer style was blatantly obvious, to the point that it extensively quotes a famous piece of classical music. (In fact, I was quite surprised that the contestants struggled with it.) The hidden song at first struck me as something else, since it has passages in common, but it didn't quite mesh up. And so I got off on the wrong foot, and it's hard to get that melody you're hearing out of your head. And then literally, at the last passage, I went, "Aha!" And got it.
