Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, renowned for his musical genius, composed a lesser-known piece titled “Leck mich im Arsch” (translated as “Lick me in the ass”). While Mozart is celebrated for masterpieces like “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” this composition, primarily known for its humorous and provocative title, is less recognized. It’s noteworthy that Mozart is believed to have penned the lyrics rather than the music itself. For those unfamiliar with German, the translated title conveys a similar sentiment to the modern English expression “kiss my ass/arse.”

Contrary to popular belief, Mozart had a playful and mischievous side. He indulged in humor that some might find crude, including poop jokes and unconventional compositions. In addition to well-known masterpieces like “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” Mozart wrote pieces with provocative titles like “Leck mir den Arsch fein recht schön sauber” (“Lick my ass right well and clean”).

Another example of his playful nature is “A Musical Joke,” a composition intentionally filled with dissonance, unexpected shifts, and “wrong notes.” This piece was created to poke fun at musicians and composers of his time. Interestingly, while aiming to create music that sounded bad, Mozart inadvertently experimented with techniques like polytonality, which later became significant in later musical periods.

Interestingly, not everyone embraced Mozart’s unconventional composition with open arms.

In 1804, when the first edition of Mozart’s complete works was published, the title “Lick me in the ass” underwent a transformation to “Let us be glad!” This alteration raises questions about the intended meaning behind Mozart’s original title. If interpreted as “Kiss my ass,” the new title appears contradictory. However, if the original intent was indeed a playful reference to a risqué act, then the revised title takes on a different, albeit fitting, meaning.

Mozart also had a playful side with a penchant for humor. His witty and sometimes scandalous letters to friends and family reflect this aspect of his personality. Mozart’s humor extended to his compositions as well, with examples like the provocative canon titled “Leck mich im Arsch,” which translates to “Lick me in the ass.” Despite his reputation as a serious composer, Mozart’s playful nature and sense of humor shine through in his works and personal correspondence.
