Not really.

barca1 ~ It is always good to extend your musical taste.

I don't expect anyone to enjoy every piece of music that has been composed in the last 500 years, but Thomas Tallis can certainly give Pink Floyd a run for it's money, and some of Verdi's numbers will knock Kylie to a cocked hat.

My life would be a lot emptier without music - right back as far as Palestrina and even before.

Ralph Vaughan Williams and Delius are the way forward.

Try listening to classic FM when your driving, all stupid actions by others rarely bother me when I listen to it.
So long as they don't touch I must add!

I am listening to Classic FM as I type and have a DAB with headphones for real listening pleasure. If I want to be cheered up I love a GOOD BRASS BAND the likes of BLACK DYKE. To be soothed there are not much better sounds by BARBER

You listening to only a small amount then, it can get very passionate and rousing.

TV background music and adverts rely heavily on clasical music.

I like all sorts of music (except for that Rap stuff). But for excellence in performing anything from Jazz to classical music, there is only one organisation that does it properly... "The Band of Her Majesty's Jollies"

You have obviously never listened to Wagners Ride of the Valkyries when driving.

Someone cuts you up - you reach for the minigun :o)

I often find that by listening to that stirring passage in Fantasia, the sorcerer’s apprentice, whilst I am choosing which postcard to feature on a Friday certainly focuses my mind, as my antics certainly mirror Mickey Mouse. Substituting the relentless march of the mops and buckets with the stack of postcards falling down on me from the shelf ;o)
