    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    Another great thread CM!! My favorite genres of 80's music, motown, disco and classical, share equal love from me. I will have a ball here! Thanks for putting it up.

    A couple more of my favorites. It's amazing, I've been listening to these since I was old enough to listen, thanks to my dad, and some people I know have never heard these in their lives, or if they have know what they actually are.

    Aram Khachaturian - Sabre Dance



    Giachino Rossini - William Tell Overture Finale

    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    And now for some awesome covers of the above songs. Start off with Sabre Dance:

    Dave Edmunds - Sabre Dance



    The divine Vanessa Mae - Sabre Dance



    We now move on to the William Tell Overture:

    Brassed Off - William Tell Overture



    Andrea Vadrucci (Vadrum) - William Tell Overture. This one is now one my favorite versions of this piece, and if you watch the video you'll soon know why

    Vanessa Mae certainly makes me appreciate the Violin! I really like to watch her performances.

    Glad you liked the thread 7thsfsniper. Now time to infuse life into this thread with some Dvořák.

    What better way to necro a thread than to revive it with some awesome music from a dead guy?

    I'm a violinist so I have a thing for paganini, but I'm pretty sure his compositions can be universally appreciated.
