Beethoven's Fifth, 4th movement (although I listened to the other movements before this). Next I'm switching to the Egmont Overture.

By the way, blasting Rachmaninoff as I drive down the street is one of the greatest things ever. Sure surprises people to see a teen listening to classical at thirty decibels.

Saint-Saens Symphony No.3 in C minor, 'Organ'. I'm not familiar enough with it to say which movement, given I only just turned on the radio, but I'd hazard the 2nd.

Dvorak is my preference for blasting out the car speakers.

Heh, thirty decibels is hardly "blasting". It's quieter than a normal conversation: 1,000 times lower sound intensity, in fact, since decibels are a logarithmic scale... :P

Er, come to think of it, this was probably what Imby was getting at in his post. :P

I enjoy classical music, I just don't have any to listen to. But when I do, I can play it for hours at a time, relaxing to it.

I'm listening to Death Defy, by some Australian band (Thuryl'd probably be able to help me out here).

Heh, Death Defy was the closing theme for an Australian drama series. You've got it stuck in my head now. Damn you.

Anyway, I had to Google it to find out the band. They're called Motor Ace.

I... stand shamed. I was under the mistaken impression that a plane engines roared at 70 decibels, so 30 sounded OK for 'blasting' music.

I shall now change my erronious figure to 96 decibels, precisely.

I don't know Dvorak very well. I just have his Cello Concerto in B minor, which is what I'm listening to right now.

You don't know Dvorak's 9th (New World) Symphony? Almost as well known as Beethonven's 9th.

Still, my all-time favourite is Sibelius, Symphonies 1 through 5. (Yes, I like all of them.) I'm listening to No.1 right now. The very first time I heard it was in concert, and man, it was one of the best things I've ever heard. The conductor himself was masterful in the manipulation of dynamics and emotions, and when combined with that music...

Once you start listening to Surfer Rosa, no other music seems worth it.

Nirvana, Aerosmith, Lit, Green Day and Blink182. Go ahead. Mock me. It's what I like. To each his/her own.

Never really cared for classical. Yes, I am an uncivilized cave man. And I enjoy it very much.

I'm currently listening to The Revenge of the Crapman, a song made by myself a few years ago. I just found it from a dusty folder in my old computer.. Dang it's good.

Actually, yes. Click HERE , and download it. Just keep in mind that it's an old song, my first, to be exact. And as if that isn't enough, when I made it, I forgot to put bass in it. :P

Surfer Rosa is like what I imagine having heroin injected into your spinal column is like. Insanely pleasurable and definitely unhealthy.
For a while there, I was continually listening to a three-CD changer with Bauhaus, Pixies, and Billie Holiday in, set on random. That was interesting. :-p

Oh. Well.

I want to be Finnish! Why did I have to be born in America? I wish they had Finnish lessons at school... then it would be easier than printing out 20+ pages of finnish 'lessons' and trying to memorize it all...

Yeee...
