    Thank you for sharing this! Very good version as far as I am concerned. Rossini is one of my best composers, would like to have known him, he looks like a jolly ole man.

    STANLEY KUBRIC PUT THIS TO GREAT EFFECT IN THE MOVIE, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. OTHERWISE, I RARELY ENJOY CLASSICAL MUSIC.

    If you want to be more certain of what you'll hear add a track from a specific artist to your library : http://www.last.fm/search/overview?q=William+Tell+Overture&type=track&page=65

    No, e262, I am sure that's no joke! It is meant very serious. It is probably the first take of the original.

    I can imagine the reaction of classical purists to this nervy choice by the Last.fm editors. Since Spike Jones isn't off limits I guess I can look forward to Carl Stalling's stylings, yay!

    A joke, right?
  • Avatar for flyby1971
    Miserable sound-quality. This is probably a recording from the 1940/s or '50/s.
  • Avatar for lost_in_last_fm
    Haha, I didn't expect to hear Spike Jones while surfing for classical music.

    Seems that someone has uploaded the [artist]Spike Jones[/artist] version of it to the Rossini profile, so it comes up now and then.

    Superb. The instrumentalists return top-flight performances all around. The arrangement and conducting are top notch.

    Spike Jones, you so crazy! Story below me rocks regardless of which version they're referring to.
  • Avatar for builtbyrobots
    This song brings me back to the hallways of my highschool - the music came on and we knew that we only had a limited amount of time to get from our lockers to our classrooms. I think it will always be that way with this song, which I am not complaining about. Because I like the memories.

    MISLABELED! This is the Spike Jones version. Jones, btw, was a great musical parodist. Well worth listening to when you want a good laugh.

    WTF? Can someone flag this crap and replace it with the real thing?

    What are you guys talking about? the preview sounds like a traditional version and the title suggests nothing otherwise.
  • Avatar for articpenguin
    wtf am i listening to.....i don't even...
  • Avatar for Milanito
    I always said it could be an interresting aim/ challenge to (re)unite so called 'serious' art ('high brow - culture') with light entertainment- but this was not I'd expected! (laughting)
  • Avatar for sobeya
    just have to write this instead of rossini beatelbaum a veryfunny comedy song
  • Avatar for Earth_1940-1960
    Spike Jones released his version as a single in 1948 and it peaked at #6 on the charts.
