    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

    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. ;)

    OOOOOOOOOOOH!! Songs from whom I cannot pronounce the artist....this is going to be FUN!!! Thank GOODNESS for Itunes.

    -Becca (who's imagining herself standing in Barnes & Noble saying, "Yes, do you have Modest Musa...Mus...M...Modest Watermelon in stock?")

    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.

    Rachmaninovs Piano Concerto No2 is achingly beautiful

    Smetana - Ma Vlast

    Bizet Carmen

    Vivaldi four Seasons

    My Favouite piece of all time though is Variations on a Theme by Thomas Tallis by Vaughan Williams - Like most Vaughan williams to be honest
