Ode to Joy is the common term used to refer to the fourth and final movement of Ludwig van Beethoven's 9th Symphony. In choral performance, the piece used the text from the poem An die Freude (Ode to Joy).

Beaker performed the movement in an online virmup video. To be more specific, six Beakers perform the number: one on violin, one on timpani, one keeping time with the metronome, and three vocalists, all replacing the lyrics with extended "Meemeee"-ing. Inevitably, disaster ensues. The video was nominated in the Music category of the 2009 Webby Awards, as well as the 'People's Voice' award. Beaker won the Webby Award, and accepted the award at the June 8th ceremony.

This song is used for episode 209 of Muppets Tonight during the montage of "Greatest Hits" on the show.

An upbeat version of the song is used as chase music at the end of a Monsterpiece Theater segment, Conservations with My Father.
