Sequence of the Day for December 16

A054245: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor.

{ 5, 5, 5, 3, 4, 4, 4, 2, 5, 5, 5, 3, 6, 6, 6, 5, 10, 10, 10, 8, 5, 5, 5, ... }

Contrary to popular belief, the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony has an eight-note motif, not four notes. Here of course we have just the principal melody line, without the bass line and inner voices. Before "polyphonic" ring tones became available, this is how you would hear it as a ring tone.

Compare:

Today is Beethoven's birthday, by the way.
