You don't know Liebestraum?
One of the most-put-on-cheap-classical-sampler melodies.

The Wedding March, part of Midsummer Night's Dream by Mendelssohn. I can't imagine anyone not knowing this. It's at everything wedding related.

I'm listening to a marathon zappa set tonight.
I went thru the collection of all the official releases and selected one song from each cd, so lather gets 3 songs, guitar gets 2 etc. beat the boots was not included and I forgot 200 motels. I've never owned a francesco zappa cd so that's not on there and I also threw an ensemble modern version of Night School on there from their greggory peccary release. Got that? The whole thing is over nine and one-half hours long. but all the releases are included except for the exceptions above and I made a conscious effort to choose songs I don't normally seek out or hear very often.
It's been great!!!
np: Rat Tomago, Shiek Yerbouti,

the last album I got was the cd/dvd version of david Bowie's Young Americans: classic. I'm a huge db fan. it's just how it is.

That's an amazing achievement there punk! I'm a recent Bowie fan, since picking up Hunky Dory. The recurring image of Ziggy Stardust put me off for a long time.

yeah, scallop I know what you mean. But it's just a persona, he's had a number of them over the years,
Hunky Dory remains a big favorite, so does Aladdin Sane. Live and Stages are interesting when compared with one another , being 4 years apart chronologically, or less, and rather different music from both, tho even some of the same songs performed.
If you're more interested in the earlier period, around Hunky Dory, try the 3-disc version of Bowie at the Beeb: live recordings for BBC, '67-'73, plus the third disc is a concert for the BBC in 2000 which is cool.
Most of my favorites of his, by now are bootlegs or rarer official releases. I have a couple of cd comps that I put together that I listen to with some frequency :)

I would say that the song 'Heroes' has one of all time favourite vocal performances. Some other favourites are Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" (must be heard to be believed) and Etta James' "At Last".

Purple Rain. It's also worth getting for Darling Nikki, the song that so upset Ms Gore and friends that they started the PMRC.

I remember now scallop, that record was always on when I was a teenager. I'm a long time fan of his just don't expect me to remember all the song titles all the time. and I know very little of his output since 1992 or so.

Bought another Saint-SaŽns album, with Danse Macabre in the way it was intended initially: as song for tenor and orchestra. Weird, but awesome!

Check YouTube! There's many renditions there!

My latest 2 purchases were at one of my faourite record stores on the 29th... unfortunately they've closed down now. They were selling all albums at 4 Euro each. I got 2 albums of Bulgarian folk.

The good news I hope you know BBP is that however the shop in the center of Eindhoven is closed but Bullit reopens
together wit MetalZone and We-Music a new shop on the Tongelresestraat, 50 meters from the We-music shop (in a old butchersshop) to a much bigger shop you must know while in that house we bought our sofa at Steengoed.
One of their regular customers is Tony Bon Jovi.

My even more recent purchases are an An Pierlť CD for a friend, and a Melanie (Safka) CD.

I recently went mad at Amazon and bought 4 CDs:

1) Out There - Eric Dolphy
2) Out To Lunch - Eric Dolphy

It was about time I got some Eric Dolphy albums. The last track on Out To lunch, Straight Up And Down, is what inspired the Memorial Barbecue I think.

3) 3 Hours Past Midnight - Johnny Guitar Watson

As far as I can make out this is a compilation of his early singles. So, I finally got around to hearing one of FZ's early guitar influences.

4) The Blues And The Abstract Truth - Oliver Nelson

I got this because it had Stolen Moments on it, one of FZ's desert island choices.
