Jeff Wayne's musical version of The War Of The Worlds.

It's ancient.


My dad got that when i was about 9 or 10, weve still got it. Its a great record. Can remember the name of the guy who narated, but his voice was a perfect match for the music. Phil Lynott was great with it aswell.

Beethoven
Mozart
Bach

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Chopin is my favorite

nocturnes op72 no.1, 27 no. 1, and op.9 no 2 are really enjoyable

No they are not

When one is refering to classical music they are not meaning Deep Purple or Fleetwood mac (or whatever clssic rock is) they are ussualy refering to music composed and performed by an orchestra.

Also, rock and rock n roll are diffrent. elvis was rock n roll. AC/DC are rock.

Ludovico Einaudi. Well, I'm not sure if it's classed as classical but it's beautiful. Definitely worth a listen

Elgar - Enigma Variations
Rimsky-Korsakov - Sheherezade
Liszt - Faust Symphony

Just a couple of favourites to get you started. Elgar was from roughly the same time as Holst.

I like the big, boomy orchestral stuff. Russians. Rimsky-Korsokov, Borodin, Mussorgsky, guys like that.
Stravinsky as well, and Shostokovitch. The "Leningrad" symphony is pretty impressive.

Symphony No.26 (First Movement) - Haydn
Pulcinella Suite (Vivo) - Stravinksy
Jazz Suite 1, Waltz - Shostakovich
