Spot the Frippet: repeat.

Well, this must be the easiest Spot the Frippet ever. It's actually harder nowadays to find something on TV that's original.

Still, for those of us (and us in this case doesn't include me) too refined and/or sensitive to watch TV, all kinds of music includes repeats.

It might be interesting to note how every repetition is different, even if all the notes are the same and are played in exactly the same manner and order.

I can only think it works rather in the same mysterious way that makes your wine tastes horrible after your pudding.

Spot the Frippet: repeat. This word comes from the Old French repeter, from the Latin repetere, from petere to seek.
