Boléro is music for a ballet composed by Maurice Ravel in 1928. It's one of the most popular compositions of all time, though not typical of Ravel's music.
"I always liked Boléro, I think that it's really one of the best melodies ever written." - Frank Zappa, quoted in Ode To Gravity - Frank Zappa: World Affairs Commentator, interview by Charles Amirkhanian, 15 April 1991.
