I know that it's possible to produce specific sounds with a floppy drive, but this tune isn't really played by the drives, is it?
Some C64 games would sometimes crash while loading, and one way to find out if it was still doing anything was to gently open the lever on the drive a bit. If it went GRRRRRRRR that meant it was still doing something. In hindsight it probably wasn't the smartest thing to do with a drive like that, so the thought of floppy drives making sounds like these now gives me the chills.
Btw. not to be a smartass, but the piece isn't Phantom of the Opera but Toccata & Fugue in D minor, so maybe the proper pun would be "Toccata & Floppy in D(rive) Minor" or something like that. =D
