The song playing on the witch rave scene in Shrek Forever After is a dance mix of Bach’s Fugue in G minor.

I know this will make that particular Bach work much more meaningful to you all. (But which Fugue in G minor IS it? Hmmm.)

J.S. Bach – Fugue in G minor BWV 578 (little):

J.S.Bach – Fugue in G minor BWV 542/2 (great):


  1. Our organist at church liked to play BWV 578 as a postlude and always – but always – started out to fast. He never learned…

  2. Heh … a good internal metronome is a wonderful thing! 🙂

  3. that is the slowest G minor i’ve ever heard…i prefer it much faster myself.
