Dead Can Dance version is very 'faithful' then...

Hello Scott. Very excited for to hear..
Avatar 8:04pm ranjit:

@rev rabbit - ahah! That's why that tune sounded familiar to me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Scott Williams:

Hello friends! So nice to sit in Bethany's conductor's chair. I have a question: what the hell is Classical Music??
Avatar 8:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I have this idea that a Civilization's Music correlates to their Metaphysic. Their Scale reflects their Quabballah. If you will...
  8:11pm JakeGould:

I hope some whales are in the audience tonight.
Avatar 8:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...that's not to answer the question...
I pretty much agree with Howard Goodall that The Beatles are Classical Music of the 1960s, for instance...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Phillippe Bastille:

Classical music is defined as "the violins and stuff you heard in elementary school music class that you didn't really pay attention to until you were mature enough to not roll your eyes when listening to it". I'm paraphrasing here
  8:13pm JakeGould:

@Scott: “What the hell is Classical Music?” It’s music everyone studies in school but then forgets 0.5 seconds after graduation.
Avatar 8:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...in other words - Romantic represents the whole thing!
...except it don't...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm steveo:

IIRC, another of Bethany's listeners recently commented that there's no such thing as classical music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Phillippe Bastille:

@JakeGould I like your definition better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Scott Williams:

@Jake, I never got to study Gavin Bryars in music school, but he's definitely accepted in the canon. I think I'm with Steveo ^^
Avatar 8:15pm TDK60:

..some say Classic music is Led Zepellin. I say classic music is Little Richard.
  8:16pm JakeGould:

@Scott: It’s what Paul Bartell is attempting to play at the beginning of “Rock and Roll High School” but then rock and roll happened.
Avatar 8:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Richard is Rawk'n'Roll - Zep is Rawk. :)
...Is Pop a Style or what's Popular? What do those even mean ??
What is Classic...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If it's not unclassical music, then it must therefore be classical music.

scott...you are the impossible burger of wfmu...I hear lions in my garage...a spider bit my cat...someone threw a pumpkin through my window...Scott you make things happen...as david cassidy once said...I think I love you...

Whatever this is, it sounds freaking excellent
Avatar 8:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

....is why they listened - in Class...
Every Form can be used Creatively or Formulaicly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Scott Williams:

@jani, I think Edgard Varese wrote the Classical Music of what you just said
Avatar 8:22pm TDK60:

It doesn't seem like calypso or country. might be classical?
Avatar 8:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A joke that implies Traditions from African & European Folk Culture
...so this Classical is in a Tradition of what - Euro Academics or Educated Elite ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm steveo:

I don't love you yet...I just want to say that...I got to say it...I love you...Scott..I have a love for you...and I miss you...so much...I think of you like I had one back in the day...when I first got into your music...I couldn't understand it or have the emotions that you had...but it got better and better...I had a friend that loved me...and he put his hand up...my mouth said no...it gets all mixed up...a few times when he had the chance...he could do it...I thought you were dead...I remember hearing you sing on the streets on the radio playing the blues...I remember the time you and this girl I met at a club...she and I went upstairs for dinner...when we got back we played a game of poker...and...he called..he was on the phone...I remember the voice...the

I was recommending this program to a friend recently and wasn't sure how I should describe it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Scott Williams:

Steveo, you been listening to that love letter from Phil's Baby on Michele's show today?
Avatar 8:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's not Impressionism if it's real animals...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm steveo:

sorry about that, I couldn't resist putting jani's wonderful comment into a neural net text generator. Yeah I did hear that today, too..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Scott Williams:

Gang, let's show Bethany we love her, eh? I don't need to tell you that it's WFMU's direst time of year, $$-wise, and that we need to raise a whole buncha clams to get thru the lean Winter times ahead - so I won't tell you that! I'll just ask you to leave a nice tip in Bethany's bonnet. Thank you! Pledgy at the widgy on the pagey

Rob! DO IT. I think Magic Is Kuntmaster covered it live once, wish I'd seen that
Avatar 8:46pm TDK60:

Rob, is there a list of karaoke songs to see?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Rob (Jerzcity):

I'm not saying I feel good about missing the event, but I feel better that I'm not missing out on the wonderful band
  8:54pm Mitch M.:

Western Europeans, including Slavs west of the Urals neatly box classical music for their own self-aggrandizement. Belittling “traditional music” from the Far East, middle, east, Caribbean, & Africa. I consider Indonesian music “Gamelan, African rhythmic music, Caribbean creole (antebellum slave) , calypso music classical. Gerachew Mehuria of Ethiopia helped change the style of some traditional African music

Fun fact: "Skin-color" Gene Tierney was born the same day as my father, just 20 years before
