Well, it's the Digital Tradition that says the Tchaikovsky melody was borrowed from "Piva Piva," and I wonder where the DT got that info.

We all agree that the tune is in Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6, Pathetique, but I always thought the meloday was a Tchaikovsky original. Anybody know Tchaikovsky's tune sources for Pathetique?
