A list of lists…

I like lists! But this isn’t my work, its the work of The List Universe which among other things includes lists of Top 10 Best Uses of Opera in Movies, Top 10 Incredible Sound Illusions, Top 10 Uncommon Orchestral Instruments, Top 10 Most Depressing Rock Songs, Top 10 Composers You Don’t Know, Top 10 Bizarre Musical Instruments (but I don’t consider any of them ‘bizarre!’) and Top 10 Musician Plane Crash Deaths
And re that last one, did you know it is statistically safer to sit near the back of a plane than up front? Have a read of this before you next get on a plane & complain about flying cattle class; “Passengers near the tail of a plane are about 40 percent more likely to survive a crash than those in the first few rows up front.” Hah! Take that bourgeois!!

The latest List Universe list is a Top 10 easy piano pieces that sound great & my favourite would have to be the Satie piece Gymnopedie No. 1 – PDF of manuscript here or a MIDI file is here if you’d rather get your software to play it for you… just please don’t let Quicktimes built in piano play it! And more info on Satie here and here

Oh & number 4 on the list is from a NZ movie – you’d never guess which one!

[edit] And ignore those previous Satie background links, THIS is the only link you need to read.
