To the esteemed Dr.BB,

I'd probably think of more or different ones another time, but here's an (eclectic) selection:

Ralph Vaughan Williams, "Five Variants on 'Dives and Lazarus'"

Beethoven, 9th symphony (esp. choral movement) or 7th symphony, 2nd movement

Samuel Barber, "Adagio for Strings" (CHORAL version)

Yes, "Turn of the Century" or "Roundabout" or "Close to the Edge"

Rich Mullins, "Everyman" or "Peace"

Rick Emmett, "The Longing" (only Canadians might be familiar with this one)

My favourite British female singer is Dusty Springfield (you can tell by my favourites,I don't spend much money on concerts),and my favourite of hers is Going Back (her version being a favourite of the song's writer Carole King).

I also like film music,particularly by John Barry,a son of York - Dances With Wolves,Out of Africa,The Black Hole,Zulu,The Quiller Memorandum,Born Free,and a host of scores for the Bond films.
John Williams,he who composes music for most of Spielberg films is also a fave of mine.
Ennio Morricone:The Clint Eastwood spaghetti trilogy,the Mission,The Untouchables,Once Upon A Time In the West/America etc.
I like the music for
The Dambusters
The Battle of Britain
Where Eagles Dare
Gone With The Wind (hated the film)
The Sea Hawk
Richard Rodney Bennett's Orient Waltz from Murder On The Orient Express
The Paris Waltz from Is Paris Burning

Lark Ascending - RVW
Anything by RVW
The First Cuckoo In Spring - Delius
The Planet's Suite - Holst
The Blue Danube,Caveleria Rusticana
Adgaio for Strings by Samuel Barber
I like the big band sounds of the war years,in fact I could happily listen to songs from the war like We'll Meet Again,A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square,Moonlight Serenade...
English folk
American folk
Edith Piaf
Tony Bennett
Frank Sinatra
Country music
Steve Conway
Fifties Ballads
Doris Day
As you see Dr BB - my tastes in music is varied and wide ranged...and there is more,but my tongue is dry of which beer can only cure. I hope that list cures your intrigue.
Nimrod

I was about to contribute my own offering, to this VERY interesting discussion, but got to thinking:

Wouldn't it be nice if Prongo shared her own discography, to illustrate her own thread?

Now that others have contributed, let's hear yours next, Prongo.

Hello Normuel........I LOVE IT when you give me your attention.IHow could any woman resist?

Of course I fully intend to contribute but the New York trip and long hours in the studio are restricting my time "on-line". (plus....I'm giving some thought towards Vote Vote Vote......6).

Don't let my prevarication delay your own list.
I hope you're not too embarrassed to admit to any kinky musical taste?.........Donny per chance ?

C'mon everyone.........this is a thread full of Big Love .I feel we're getting to know each other just a little bit more.
