I should note that "try Shazam" is a great answer for so many of these but Shazam thought the cuttlefish video was "Baby Sunrise" by Rune Rudberg???? How???????

Last year I was frustrated that I kept almost remembering certain pieces of iconic classical music but could never place them, so started keeping a list (creatively titled "classical music you can't ever remember") and added to it/went through it occasionally to try to retain it. The gymnopedies are on there. Toccata and fugue is on there. Flower duet. This one. Etc. This question was the first proof of concept for my list, so that was fun. Thanks!

Response by poster: Yeah, Shazam didn't work for me either - it came up with two different poppish songs.

TV Tropes’ Standard Snippet has stood me in good stead when identifying That One Classical Motif. (Aquarium is “Underwater scenes. … Also commonly used in movie trailers, especially for films concerning magic, wizards, fortune-telling and the like. ”)

Best answer: For future reference: I have found this old AskMe thread fascinating and super useful--What is that song they always use?

Shazam may not have worked, but SoundHound got it in one.

Probably a conga of some sort.
