Amen.

And speaking of Beethoven, they say he was raised on J.S. Bach's two-book Well-Tempered Clavier. So from Book One of that series ...

Prelude and Fugue in C Minor.

My apologies to those who dislike the sound of the harpsichord ... but to be fair, Bach was only introduced to the earliest pianos rather late in his life. The WTC books were written and intended for harpsichord, so I think this is how Bach would have preferred it (though he could be flexible about instrumentation).

J.S. Bach is easily my favoritest classical (technically Baroque) musician of all time -- I suppose my favorite in both old and modern times, though I like a lot of music by a wide range of musicians.

Nice! There are not nearly enough people listening to classical music these days.
Not right now, but after coming out of a long depression, I put on Beethoven's Ninth and when they started singing [4th Movement, the Chorale] I started crying: a great way to wash out the last dregs of a depression. I listened to it [the whole symphony] 3 times in 2 days.

I'm NOT a big country fan, but I've been listening recently to Jennifer Nettles and even more to Brandy Clark. Especially His Hands: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xySHuL7hDEk , Get High: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upufAN_hP2w , and Hungover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knhsbosT7ao

Country with intelligence. And feminist to boot! There's another one, What'll Keep Me Out Of Heaven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujkT5xuObtg with a couple of lines that I love:
"He's some stranger's husband
And I'm some stranger's wife."
and the visuals to Crazy Women: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTUQOyiD0KM are a hoot. TOTALLY opposite to polyamory, of course.

Y'all have yaselves a good day, y'hear?
