The best of the classical section?
Topic: The best of the classical section?
April 22, 2019 / By Stacy Question:
So many artists these days have an album out entitled "The Best of ____". If we were to compile a list of the best questions and answers that the classical section has seen, which questions and answers would you include? These can be questions/answers that were thought-provoking, informative, creative, controversial, eventful (I'm thinking of our dear little troll here!), or just plain funny! Let's reminisce, shall we?
Provide a link if you'd like, or just tell us about it. I saw something similar in the B&A one time, and thought it would be fun to ask this here. It's the history of the classical section! One more quick question, how long have you been participating on this section of Yahoo?
Dangerous waters? I don't want to upset or bother anyone. Sorry if my question does provoke some people.
No! The thought of stealing other people's writing never crossed my mind! I'm sorry to upset so many people! I just thought it would be fun. Should I delete the question?

OK... this may take awhile.
The first that comes to mind is actually not a question in the classical section, but it involes Schumiszt. Switchs answer was absolutely hilarious!
And Hafwens answer to this one:
and this one:
(I have to admit this is one of my more intelligent answers... Such "insight" when I wrote:
"the whole idea of Cherubino is that he is a youth "coming to terms with love," although we don't call it that anymore.... :P" and I adore the question too!)
Such witty answers in this one!:
I still havent gotten over Hafwen referring to the bassoon as a farting bedpost. Although the conductor in orchestra (a bassoonist) got pretty angry when "I" referred to it as such...
Hafwens passion for double reed instruments is inspiring!
Yes I left it in the bathroom....
The Toscannini quote is adore-a-bubble
"God tells me how the music should sound, and you stand in the way"
Thanks for sharing that one Alberich!
NIce one schumiszt
Jack Herring looks like his instrument when he smiles (hehe piano teeth... I get it!)
Yes... lots of things annoy me. (The Duchess' question on what ticks you off)
come on it says "Frankly my dear, I dont give a damn." and it has a Wozzeck quote!
Thats all for now!

I have been coming here since October 2006, apparently. I can't remember many of the interesting questions I have seen there, I'm afraid, but something I will ALWAYS remember a wonderful sentence stated by Glinzek or Bearcat (I can't remember which, sorry to both of them):
"Never underestimate the public's passion for mediocrity." I have since quoted that sentence often. It is profound, witty and, above all, regrettably true.

No, don't delete the question. Some here tend to be a little full of themselves sometimes.
I do not keep track of all of the questions and answers, so I do not have anything to contribute here however, I thank MissLimLam for sharing some of her favorites. It's good to laugh.

I think this particular question by Suhwahaksaeng, including the answers, deserves a permanent place in the "album".

Originally Answered: Classical music that helps someone focus on homework?
If you find "regular" music distracting, classical music will distract you too. The idea that classical music, particularly Mozart, will help people become more focused, smarter, creative, etc. is really been proved to be more of a marketing tool for record companies.
I love classical music, and I am particularly fond of Mozart, but if there is anything I need to concentrate on, I find that no noise at all--musical or otherwise--helps me to focus best. The exception is if I'm doing anything like drawing, sewing,etc. then classical music seems to help my creative processes. Then again, I find it helpful to have the television on--so it's not the music that helps after all.
