    Ivo Pogorelich playing Robert Schumann’s 3-movement Fantasia in C and Johannes Brahms’ 2-movement Paganini Variations in Madrid in 2016:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RJYk0tB-og

    It is a music-lover’s recording made in the Concert Hall. You can only hear him play. It will do.

    If you do not know classic piano music well: Pogorelich’s “transcendental” playing may win you over.

    Allow this.

    I'm listening to the '74 live version of Genesis's seminal "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway"..........................

    It's ****!ng epic.

    Gabriel is a genius, but I am somewhat biased.

    Sadly I am a musical ignoramus only gaining pleasure from music that really penetrates me emotionally in a moving, profound, breathless heart, kinda way.  Or pumps into my veins causing my body to sway or dance in a boppy fun kinda way.

    Catchy tunes that I can sing to are my other go to source, even though I could never sing to save my life.  Doesn't stop me from involuntarily belting out and butchering songs to the rolling eyes of companions as they whisper, "Don't give up ya day job".

    Coming from a non-musical family, with disco being my formative era, probably had a lot to do with that and maybe explains why the marketable classic, Phantom of the Opera, makes me howl at the moon.

    I think there might even be a few choice words in the music industry to describe my type, lol - the ones that don't hear all the genius sounds - and I'm more than happy to have 'em thrown my way

    Anyway, I can't escape my musical illiteracy but would love to find a few classics that have that deep, rumbling, escalating sound, (there's my ignorance showing), that stabs at my core.  Last of the Mohicans and Phantom are examples of what I'm looking for.

    Any classical music buffs that might be able to think of a couple off the top of their head and post, I would be very grateful.

    Jeeezusss Girl..........

    "Musical illiteracy" you say...... But you love disco!

    Disco rocks! And as for Phantom......... Well, I'll show my cards, I don't know it so well but......... I ab-so-lu-te-ly LOVE Chess by ABBA's Bjorn & Benny and Tim Rice....... And bare in mind, I made a living as a club dj in the some of the UK & Europe's cooler clubs in the early '90's........ And musical's or classical where a bit of a dirty secret at that age!

    Never, ever, under any circumstance, dismiss your musical preferences......... If it touches you on an emotional and spiritual level, whether it be hardcore Detroit techno, '70's rock, or Opera........ If it touches the part's that other beers can't reach, then it's alright by me.

    In Richard Wagner’s Götterdämmerung (“Twilight of the Gods”), the fourth of a towering series of four related operas, the young human hero Siegfried is treacherously murdered by Hagen.

    His comrades take his body on their shoulders; a funeral march ensues.

    Siegfrieds Tod und Trauermarsch ("Siegfried’s Death and Funeral March") is here being played, in 1988, by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the charismatic Klaus Tennstedt – moved to tears by the music he interprets with them.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXh5JprKqiU

    Now this music sounds like the Funeral March for the natural human who, in spite of laziness, cowardice, flippancy, ... ... ... — o God of the Gods, has not deserved to die.

    Yes this is an offshot of the "My favorite Music" Thread

    But, if anyone can't get a song by the original lyrics please ask the meaning, and the person who posted please reply and explain. And do explain in english about what the song means

    Purpose is to get a better understanding about what some songs truly mean but in a shared language that allows everyone around to pick it up

    So if you heard a song and you don't get what it truly means, please post it here and anyone with the correct understanding may explain

    Well, going from Ramones to Simon and Garfunkel, I have to say that got my brain going around!

    Great thread of tunes - a shout out to "haroldsails" for introducing me to Shpongle!

    Shpongle's music feels very inspirational - if you are feeling a little "off" and don't know what to do, I think Shpongle will help you through.
