My classical recommendations

I've decided to listen to classical music to improve my intelligence and further my standing amongst my fellow farmyard colleagues. See, it's working already, check out all the long words I'm using.

I'm borrowing classical cd's from the local library bus, and this week I've decided to listen to Mozart, mainly because his first name is "Wolfgang" which is brilliant. Imagine being named after a horde of savage animals? To get in the mood, I'm calling myself "vulturevillains", which probably isn't as posh sounding as Wolfgang, but it's very similar in style.

First I listened to "FigRoll" which is an opera. I'm not sure what what it was all about as there was alot of yodelling and screeching like cats. After the first five minutes, I fell asleep and had the most amazing dream I was being chased by a large melon. Whether that had anything to do with Mozart, I wouldn't know.
Then I listened to Symphony no 41, also called "Jupiter". I love planets as you all know, so I was well looking forward to this one. Unfortunately I completely missed this one too as Neighbours was on, and I'm still in shock at the return of Joe Mangel.
I'm sure it was brilliant though and recommend it to all my readers. Not Neighbours, Mozart's 41st Symphony.

I was going to listen to one of his other symphonies, but it was called "unfinished", so I thought, well, if he can't be bothered to finish it, I ain't gonna bother to start it. So I threw it over the hedge and let's hope it landed in a cowpat.

Next week, Beethoven.

My owner's mate does a lot of Church services as he's doing some choir boy scholarship thing, and in turn he's liking classical music more and more. Load of tripe if you ask me, Sugababes beats Beethoven into the ground.

I reckon you need a couple of hours listening to Motorhead at full blast.

"Screeching like cats", eh? Excellent! All I need now is a fig that I can roll whilst I listen...

Motorhead?! I'm far too delicate for such things. We like the gentle tones of Rachel Stevens round 'ere.

Would this be a good or a bad time to announce that I'm a choir girl?

Derek said...

Ooh. I'm impressed. Can you sing "Pie Jesus"?

Give us a note then.

did you watch X Factor? We're addicted. Do you agree with Simon ejecting his own group? That blonde one was a bit upset. Again.

Laaaaa!

I wanted the Conway Sisters to win. Or at least do well.

I shall now crawl under a rock.
