"Moonlight Sonata" has been used in and inspired a number of popular songs. John Lennon got the idea for the Beatles track "Because
," when he heard Yoko Ono playing "Moonlight Sonata" on the piano. He asked her to play it backwards, and came up with "Because" based on what he heard. Also "Stabbed
," by the Scottish band Glasvegas is set against the piano of "Moonlight Sonata."
