Right now I'm listening to my Playlist.com playlist "Epic Music". It has pieces from movies like 300, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, CtB, Starship Troopers, etc. I noticed today I have a large number of Basil Poledouris titles on there. The man was very prolific.

I have a Pandora station that goes 180 degrees from acoustic blues to hard rock. It's a really great balance and Pandora is getting better - it seems that new songs crop up on the channel everyday.

In the car, I'm playing a pile of CDs I bought recently. Started with Corey Harris 'Downhome Sophisticate' today.

Hey Reaver, I have a very similair MP3 playlist myself...it's called "Epic OST", and is full of good soundtracks like Gadiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Troy, Conan, King Arthur, 300, The Mission, The Bounty and loads of other goodies...I find it to be the perfect companion when reading fantasy/S&S books.

I also find the Battlestar Galactica soundtracks (mini series and seasons 1-3) by Richard Gibbs & Bear McCreary are excellent non-intrusive (but inspirational) music.

I've been listening to the new Star Trek soundtrack, but recently switched to Sibilius and Borodin.
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

Arch Enemy - My Apocalypse

I'm not much of a death metal fan but I kind of enjoy this song. Say what you will about Cookie Monster singing, Angela Gossow's growling is impressive :)

Good call on King Arthur and Battlestar Galactica. :) I also have the theme to Rambo: First Blood Part II by Jerry Goldsmith on mine. That score kicks some ass!

Yay! They're great aren't they? Jan Sibelius' En Saga tells a S&S yarn as a "tone poem". You expect Conan too loom out of the Cimmerian mists in that one. Borodin's Polovetsian Dances evokes very violent images from me.

Right now, a track from Qntal (Abaelard) just ended, followed by The Great River from LOTR. We have other Qntal fans on this board; they are a German band led by a brilliant soprano. Normally Qntal finds medieval or renaissance poems or songs and bring in some German techno synthesizers. Early on, they had a heavy dark techno sound, but now it's a lot lighter in tone, with medieval instruments. They're very original and enjoyable.

Hey CK! I don't have any Harris at all, but I'm now listening to the Chet Baker/Pieranunzi album, ever hear that? It fits a REALLY rainy Florida evening nicely.

Is anyone familiar with Ralph Vaughan Williams? Amazing English classical composer, incorporated a lot of traditional folk melodies and did some of those 'tone poems' you mentioned, Kortoso. Great stuff.

Earlier it was the Pogues, Rick Derringer and Rush's 'Moving Pictures.' I tend to get a little eclectic on 'chore days.'

Last night, before the front came in off the gulf, I took my telescope to the beach to check out July constellations and listened, appropriately, to Holst's 'The Planets.' (John Williams ripped off the 'Mars' movement for Darth Vader's theme.)

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. - Edgar Allen Poe

It's the olden lure, it's the golden lure, it's the lure of the timeless things. - Robert Service

For the myth is the foundation of life; it is the timeless schema, the pious formula into which life flows when it reproduces its traits out of the unconscious. - Thomas Mann

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. - Norman Maclean

Holst's "Mars" got ripped off blatantly for the "Gladiator" movie, and more subtly for "Pirates of the Caribbean".

Not familar with that Chet Baker album though I'm sure I would like it. Haven't heard anything by him I've disliked. Harris is cool. Highly underrated because he was into fusion but could play straight ahead jazz and bebop with the best of them. Love "The Planets" I have a recording of that as well and have actually played in a wind symphony that performed the Jupiter and Mars movements. Some of it is kind of difficult. 10-4 on the John Williams rip off. I like Rush too although I haven't listened to a lot. I work with a salesman out of my company's corp office who is friends with those guys (lives in KC area). Is that where they're from?
