Morning folks.  

It occurred to me as I was browsing through a classical music site today (one that allows you to listen to excerpts from the piece) that I recognized a good deal more of the music than I thought should be possible.  At least 15 or 20 times I clicked on the name that was not familiar and heard a tune that was...

I've taken a few music classes in college, but nothing more than the bare minimum required ... so where did I hear all of these masterpieces?  Funny as it sounds, I think most of it has been on TV -- specifically, cartoons.  For example, I don't think there's one of us who hasn't seen that Bugs Bunny episode featuring a toga-wearing Elmer Fudd singing the time honored tune "Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit, kill the WABBit, kill the wabbIT ...." (which happens to be set to Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries -- one of my favorites!)

A few other favorites for television exploitation are Beethoven's 5th, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, and Schubert's Unfinished (some of us might remember it as the 'Smurfs' theme -- LOL).

Has this ever happened to you?  If so, where, and which piece of music?  If you don't know the name, DO A SEARCH and find out!  You might be surprised by how much you didn't know you knew!

OH NO YOU DON'T, Madam!!

I demand that you list the deatils HERE, for our scandal-loving pleasure!

This has GOT to be good ... hehe

If it helps, the best Madonna impression I ever saw was at a gay bar called Warsaw on South Beach ... this dude did "Like a Virgin" in full costume and makeup, and I daresay he looked better than the original!!

well the best I can do while following forum decorum? Is... just listen to it, and let your mind fill in the details...

and you would love New Orleans! When I went to Disneyworld? I just happened to arrive on "Gay and Lesbian" day...yep in the Magic Kingdom! While entranced by a gorgeous man wearing a princess hat on the carousel? His boyfriend turned to me and said? "Bet you've never seen anything like that before!" I just rolled my eyes and said, "Please, I'm from New Orleans..." whereupon he squealed and I became his best girlfriend for the day.
And? We had a GREAT day. I just felt a little bit queasy on the "Peter Pan" ride....

Well I've noticed that classical music plays a key role in expressing a lot of animated cartoons........I love it........it's my second favorite type of music.

My favs are:

O Fortuna!
In the hall of the mountain king
And
Moonlight Sonata

OHhhhh yea



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily
