I think I just found the most horrible classical music website on the net. Or useful, depending on where you’re at. Here’s the blurb from www.kickassclassical.com .
“Get to know the most popular Classical Music in pop culture today! You’ve heard these famous Classical Music pieces in movies, trailers, commercials, cartoons, video games and ringtones. Now you can find out what the pieces are called and who did them! Just click the PREVIEW links to immediately identify the piece. It’s all the cool Classical Music you know, none of the boring stuff. “
This is followed by such tempting offerings as
LOONEY TUNES SUNRISE MORNING MUSIC and
INTENSE EVIL SOUNDING CHOIR IN MOVIE TRAILERS (any guesses?), etc.
At this point I could make intelligent and sombre predictions about the future of classical music, but hey, it’s the weekend! Enjoy!
