Scott Joplin – “The Entertainer”

Post image for Scott Joplin – “The Entertainer”

Only one of the greatest and most famous piano works of all time, here is Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” as performed by the American composer himself. More than stand the test of time, this unforgettable theme has become part of the very DNA of popular music, rediscovered by every generation since its conception. From its first run as a piano roll hit, through a chart topping radio resurgence in 1974 (precipitated by a prominent use in the hit Paul Newman / Robert Redford movie The Sting), to its ubiquitous presence on the loudspeakers of ice cream trucks the world over, this piece is synonymous with joy and fun.

Its public domain, meaning anyone can use it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_domain

Hector, I don’t disagree, but I think you must do your own research for each song to determine if it’s really in the public domain for the use you require.
