That's the problem, since BA used it on their ad's it has been thrashed to
death (it's not even a good rendition). Another excellent but 'overcooked
thanks to tv' tune is Sergei Prokofiev's In the Hall of the Mountain King
from Peer Gynt. Oh yes, don't forget to add Pachelbel's canon to the list.

If we're talking overkill, how about Handel's 'Zadok the Priest' or
Barber's 'Adagio for Strings'?

My favourite classical tunes are Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons', Bach's
'Toccata and Fugue in D Minor' and Prokofiev's 'Montagues and Capulets'.

For easy listening I'm choosing a lot of Hawkwind and Rammstein, but I
have a massive random playlist on all the time while I'm at the PC.

True, but still an outstanding piece imho.

'Toccata and Fugue in D Minor' and Prokofiev's 'Montagues and Capulets'.
One of the very first CD's I ever bought was Vivaldi's Four Seasons back in
83. Between that plus Steve Miller and Dire Straits; played all to death. I
only have to hear the opening bars of Spring and I'm running for cover. A
case of overkill for me I'm afraid.

I love Toccata and Fugue recorded in Salzburg cathedral, it just blows away
all my concerns. I don't know much about Bach nor do I have much of his
music apart from his Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations. I
really should take the time out to listen to him more. The composer that I'm
trying to get acquainted with is Haydn.

Anyone know which TV show used Grieg's Norwegian Dance No.2 in the 70s/80s?
It's been bugging me for ages since I heard it on Classic FM months ago.

This hymn from Hell was mentioned on TV Years the other day, and it got me
thinking. I mean, apart from the brats' parents, who would actually go to a
record shop and buy the accursed thing? In such numbers as to get it to no.

Haven't seen that film, but it was used to perfection in the penultimate
Marion & Geoff last year when Keith's car was towed away and the city streets
passed by as the camera sat there was a helpless observer.

Aah, you remind me of my biggest classical sin (from the GTAIII radio):

Libiamo ne'lieti calici (The Drinking Song) from La Traviata. The
Lesley Garrett/Pavarotti duet is just fantastic.

I always thought it a brilliant touch to have the Classical music station
playing by default in the black Mafia cars.

Don't Look Back In Anger bears some striking similarity to it.

Did anyone think that recent effort simply ruined what was originally a
great song? What a pointless idea putting cheesy bloody choir oohs and

And the chord sequence copied in millions more tunes! But let's face it,
thinking up that chord sequence wasn't exactly rocket science. Not taking
away from what is a great piece of music.

Talking of things in D (and I've mentioned this in another post elsewhere),
Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus is a stunning piece of music, and absolutely
gorgeous when done with a string quartet (or ensemble of some form) instead
of the more common organ (which can be just as nice, depends on the organ,
but it sounds absolutely perfect with strings).

I'm off as I'm running out of adjectives.

Totally. I've never heard such a singular piece of music sound so different
depending on 'as you say' arrangement, conductor and orchestra. Jmho, but
most interpretations really don't do it justice, but that's just my opinion

I agree with that. It's a wonderful piece of music. One of my favourites
is a version I have with just a piano playing everything, with a very good
rhythmic feel.

But then again, the full orchestra ones are superb.

Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique. Fourth movement's particularly good.

It's tempting to go and look up the spelling to
something vague and arty, but to be honest may
favourite piece of music is;

Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield

It gets you wanting to join Percival on the quest
for the grail on a good day :-)

Yes, but it's not as good....

'Don Juan' with the famous swoopy horn bit is much better....

Just the famous bit, which always reminds me of the 2001 scene with the
man-ape waving the bone around. My favourite film scene, ever.

My second favourite music piece would be the Ode to Joy.

Damn, now that I've started I may as well go the whole hog and give you my
eight Desert Island Discs.

1) Also Sprach Zarathustra (R. Strauss)
2) 9th Symphony, 4th Movement (Beethoven)
3) Blue Danube (J. Strauss)
4) Hallelujah Chorus (Handel)
5) Ride of the Valkyries (Wagner)
6) 1812 Overture (Tchaikovsky)
7) Night on Bare Mountain/Ave Maria (Mussorgsky/Schubert)
8) Entry of the Toreadors from Carmen (Bizet)

Book: Lord of the Rings
Luxury: A 2000-piece jigsaw

So many to choose from. Off the top of my head - Ave Verum Corpus by both
Mozart and Saint-Saens are stunning pieces of work, as is the first movement
of Gershwin's Piano Concerto (particularly the horn duet towards the end).
Pomp and Circumstance March no.1 (Land of Hope and Glory) is great, but
overplayed, as is Jupiter (The Planets) and the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves
(Verdi), though they've all been played to death a bit. To the more pop
side of things, "World in motion" goes down as the best footie anthem ever
in my book (also happens to be the first ever record I bought, I think -
definitely the first ever single, on 7" vinyl, now unfortunately snapped in
half), with Three Lions a close second. Also the last 2 tracks from
Supertramp's "Even in the quietest moments" album - "From Now On" and "Fools
Overture" are songs that I'll never tire of hearing. I think I'll give a
mention to a song called "Release" by a local band (to me) called The Mighty
590, which would easily make it into my top 20 (maybe top 10) favourite
songs of all time.

There's probably a whole load of stuff I haven't mentioned - there are loads
of beatiful moments in Les Mis and Miss Saigon (Boublil/Schonberg) that
would make it into some form of list - mostly the stuff that hasn't been
played to death like the more well known tunes. And loads more stuff.
