Great versions of the Habenera aria, from Georges Bizet's Carmen.

Most people will recognise this aria, even if they have no real interest in Opera. It's been used in various adverts and also in one of my favourite movies, Disney Pixar's UP. Feel free to add your own personal favourite versions and comment on the ones you've never heard.Enjoy.
