    What is the name of the tune – it’s familiar but I cannot remember the name – it distracted me from the Hockey game.

    I was familiar with the piece, but even when I found the name in one of the comments on YouTube, it didn’t mean anything to me.

    Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie 1

    Satie wrote atmospheric pieces. Eventually Debussy wrote orchestrations of the piece ( calling it the 3rd instead of the 1st) , and I am guessing that is why we recognize it.
