The only rap songs I've ever liked are a few of the Will Smith ones than have been in the movies and that song from Bad Boys II. It starts off sounding like the Atlanta Braves war chant! :thumb:

I must be the only person alive anymore that likes classical or baroque music. I love Mozart's piano sonatas and I like Bach, and Schubert. I also like Big Band Jazz and Jazz violin music.

Well, I do know Philip Glass and John Adams. I was hooked on Glass after seeing the film "Koyannisqatsi."

Ericmwalters also mentioned Brian Eno. I have a few pieces by him (ambient music for airports). He is worth checking out.

Some other names I do not recognize that I will have to look into.

Brian Eno did a lot of the fantastic music for the fantastic movie 28 Days Later.

There is a ton of good classical out there. I enjoy some Shostokovich every once and awhile and some Holst ‘The Planets’.

One of the better soundtracks I listened to last night is from “Last of the Mohican”

It was also stolen to be used in that Brad Pitt movie the wife likes “Legends of the Fall”

Other good soundtracks are:
Patton
Saving Private Ryan
Crimson Tide
The Great Escape
Lost Highway
Return of the Jedi


What is the best soundtrack out there?

Ladies Who Rock:

Heart

Pat Benetar

Linda Ronstandt

L7
Don't forget Bonnie Raitt.....a great vocalist and the best female instrumentalist bar none.

plus a few country types............
Emmylou Harris, Roseanne Cash, Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.

If you haven't heard Loretta Lynn's latest recording "Van Lear Rose" that's produced by Jack White of the White Stripes give it a try. She might be 70 years old, but she's never sounded better or rocked harder. Imagine her being backed up by the Stones (circa "Exile on Mainstreet") ..........
