OLD 55

The Original Songfactors' Choice Top Ten Lists 1 to 9

Recommended Posts

Now we also have classical music... what will be next? Some Mozart or Beethoven? :)

I'm still trying to find "Rite Of Spring" on the few 'classical' CDs we have.

That's why I don't usually nominate any mid/late 50s or early 60s CLASSICS.

Not enough people know them. I feel as old as Methuselah sometimes.

:P

P.S. Congratulations Farin ! You must have made the ONE THOUSANDTH Post in our Top Ten Thread. I've just gone to the start of Page 21 x 50.

:coolio:

Part of it is also on Disney's movie "Fantasia".

NO, NO, NO !!! I mightn't get to vote for my own nominations. :P

Seahorse, a tadpole needs your help. Not sure about your rules. Am I permitted to vote for my two nominations?

Thanks Edna, but I've found it and I'm listening to it now. :)

Le Sacre du printemps 18 minutes and 53 seconds !!!

Nothing happens for 15 and a half minutes except what I'd call "incidental" music ! Verdict: Listen to 8 early 60s Classics instead. So I'm a peasant. The Peasant Of Pop.

My eldest son actually has this CD "The Best Of Stravinksky". He bought it because he was curious to find out why Frank Zappa was a fan of Stravinsky.

(Sorry jman ! It did sound much better in "Fantasia").

;)

Bring back that lovin' feelin'....

Hi Judo. :)

For sure ! Put them #1 and #2 unless you see some others nominated that you like better (which has happened to me. I've seen 3 I like better than mine.)

I didn't know I was a seahorse. Must have been when I got over 3000 Posts.

I feel like a flounder (floundering around) most of the time.

:headphones:

I was alright for a while.........

Apologies to The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Love that song.
