I've decided that as much as I adore John Denver , my ipod needs a bit of diversity...I've developed a new affinity for classical music...but I'm a true novice. Does anyone have any favorites? I'd love to hear about them!
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
Mozart's Requiem - the one from the movie Amadeus
Holst's Planets Suite
Vivald's Four Seasons.
On and you can't beat a bit of 1812 Overture when there's a storm raging outside. :D
Oh I love Madame Butterfly too but that's opera. :7:
Here's a couple of mine:
Maurice Ravel - Bolero
Aaron Copeland - Fanfare for the Common Man, Rodeo
And, in keeping with the theme of these boards:
Johann Sebastian Bach — Toccata and Fugue in D Minor BWV 565
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Nutcracker Suite Op. 71a
Paul Dukas — The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Igor Stravinsky — The Rite of Spring
Ludwig van Beethoven — 6th symphony in F, Op.68 "Pastorale"
Amilcare Ponchielli — La Gioconda: Dance of the Hours.
Modest Mussorgsky — Night on Bald Mountain
Franz Schubert — Ave Maria
You may reconize the above as the basic playlist from Fantasia. ;)
Tom (who some people consider a classic... or at least as old as one)
OOOOOOOOOOOH!! Songs from whom I cannot pronounce the artist....this is going to be FUN!!! Thank GOODNESS for Itunes.

In case you've not heard the story Catrancher, my church choir director used to tell us that if, during a performance, we forgot the lyrics to the song we were singing, we should just mouth the word "watermelon" over and over until we caught up....
It has served me well in French restaurants over the years.
Wow what a cultured lot we are. :D
