Eine Kleine Brollymusik

I was doing the tourist bit in historic Alexandria, Virginia many years ago when I saw an umbrella with part of a piano score printed on it. I asked the owner if the music was Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu and she smiled and said yes.

I figured that one out after hearing Vern Sutton on "A Prairie Home Companion" sing a series of parodies of a certain pop song based the Chopin piece.

Consider this another clue to Valerie Kahler's "Word" puzzle posting: 82 ACROSS Pop song from Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu (23 letters)
