Beethoven’s 5th (NSFW)

It’s called Classical Music for a reason. That reason being that it has withstood the tests of time and the vagaries of cultural shifts, and nowhere is that more true than in case of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.

Beethoven’s 5th has even adapted well to modern performances, possibly because Beethoven understood the lasting power of the base line.


She Had My Attention From The First Movement πŸ˜‰

Of course, if one only cares about a driving base beat and doesn’t understand or favor subtlety or complexity, there’s always Rap and/or Hip-Hop. It’s replaced the sublime with the feral, which appeals to many people who are more in touch with their animal passions.


Not To My Normal Tastes But I Could Get Behind That

Still, there are times and places to set aside the pleasures of the mind and revel in the flesh. Rap and Hip-Hop have the advantage of simplicity and a primal connection, not being too dependent upon skill or any form of delicacy, that is lacking in Classical Music and there are times when I could happily get behind that. πŸ˜›
