I like classical, I just never listen to it for some reason. Probably because it would be weird mixed in with the rest of my mp3s.

I like classical - as long as it's none of that high pitched opera crap.

As the best hip-hop usually samples classical, I'm not surprised you said that. And word up, try some Samuel Barber, Mussorgsky and Wagner.

Leonard Bronstein is different but worth it as well.

John Williams isn't classical. It's movie scores. Big difference.

Yes, that's right, classical music rocks.
However, this is still a taboo-subject for a lot of people. A lot of people are afraid to admit that it's great music, that's a shame. I love the scores for Aliens versus Predator (part I) and outcast. Try 'em out, they are fantastic.

By the way, I know that the given examples are 'scores', but I like classical music too. It's somewhat similar sometimes..

PS: It's kind of a cliché when it comes to classical music, but I'm in love with Tchaikovsky's Swan lake. Go download it on KaZaA..

I think some of you are confusing classical with orchestral.
I like both. but not opera.

Classical:
a : of or relating to music of the late 18th and early 19th centuries characterized by an emphasis on balance, clarity, and moderation

b : of, relating to, or being music in the educated European tradition that includes such forms as art song, chamber music, opera, and symphony as distinguished from folk or popular music or jazz

I think both popular music and jazz (since rock probably came from jazz) are both closely enough related. In fact, most people today look at pop music as rock music, but I guess it depends on your definition of rock.

I think music in the educated European tradition means no fucking rock :P

Even though I love classical music I think it sounds horrible in midi versions. Thus I hate Doom levels using classical scores for music.

That's because MIDI sucks.

My favourite classical suite has to be The Planets by Gustav Holst. It's been my favourite since I was quite young and it just conjures up all sorts of imagery in my head. It really helps when I'm trying to be creative :)
