The simpsons wiki has a list of the music used in episodes. Perhaps thatíll be of use.

I looked before posting, didin't see it there.

Do you happen to remember any details of when it was shown on the Simpsons? Even just something as simple as whether it was 90s Simpsons or more recently could help narrow it down.

Also, what exactly do you mean in this context by classical music? I'm assuming, based on the style you describe, you're probably not referring to classical in the sense of Mozart. Is it an instrumental piece? Do you have an idea of the decade the song might be from?

Are you sure it was "Gassinover" and not "Casanova"? It's not classical, but I found this 80s song with the same name:

I'm sure there's a lot more music that uses that word so perhaps give that a try?

Yo, Ape Account :) I heard it on a classical music station, that's why I only know the name's phonetic sound. The host only said "it appeared on The Simpsons." It is instrumental, with those Carribean oil drum drums and maybe xylophones. I'm not certain on the composer's name (could have been French). Maybe it was used an a vacation episode or one involing Homer, cause it also had an ignorance is bliss vibe. Had a distinct and recognizable melody and tune.

Also, It's not Cassanova. I don't know what period it's from and could be 20th century.

Nothing really springs to mind. The drum made me think of Under the Sea, but that obviously doesnít match well at all with the name.

On an off chance, The Itchem and Scratchem Blow would seem to match the sort of scene and it did have some background music. However, I think thatís probably just generic background music and not an actual song.

Yes! A beautiful piece of music. Thank You!


How well does it match the trope?
