Technically, it's not the oldest known composition, it's the oldest known complete composition. The two Delphic hymns probably predate it, and there's a hymn to a Sumerian or Syrian (can't remember off the top of my head which one) moon goddess that's over a thousand years older than that.

Still, awesome beyond words.

No, this is an ancient precursor to "Don't worry be happy"

This is touching. Adding this to my curriculum.

The song is so awful she died of embarrassment.

Seriously though, imagine being the wife of the only hetero in all of ancient Greece. Gotta be tragic.

Now add a dem bow beat, a couple dancers and some autotune. That'll be our legacy in 2000 years.
