This is a silly question but also one of askmetafilter’s most magical abilities: Help me find this song from the Little Fires Everywhere finale please!

In the season finale of Little Fires Everywhere (episode 8) there is a scene where Mia is at the supermarket buying flour and then making art while listening to a podcast about the town. There is also classical piano music in the background - does anyone know that piano piece? My dad used to play it when I was a kid and I would love to figure out the title/composer. Thanks!

Best answer: I believe this is the scene you are talking about
Sounds like Chopin maybe? But I'm sure somebody could tell from listening.

Best answer: If that's the scene linked above, rongorongo has the right composer -- it's Chopin's Waltz in B minor, op. 69, no. 2 (a.k.a. Waltz No. 10). Many recordings on YouTube; here's a recent one by Alice Sara Ott.

Just as a future tip for anyone who may come back to this post down the road, when it comes to TV shows, I've found that when you turn on closed captioning, the captions will often tell you what the song is when it begins.

For movies you can usually find the song your looking for (or at least narrow the list of candidates) by checking out the soundtrack list on IMDb.
