Слушать классику на постоянке - довольно глупо. Её нужно изредка вкушать, наслаждаться, как фильмом. Если вы будете держать на репите классику, то она быстро начнет раздражать и не будет нести своего истинного смысла. Потому ходите в музыкальные театры, филармонии, слушайте редкими вечерами, но не нужно выпячивая грудь рваться и кричать о том, что классика - есть круто. Да, она есть круто, но смаковать ее нужно, как дорогое вино, а не как сиську балтики 7.
What the hell? Why is the skip forward button at the top of the page, but the video is in a small square at the bottom? Why is there a progress bar near the skip button, but you can't use it. This makes no sense at all.
Only a minority of classical lovers are snobs, i.e. people who just pretend to love it for social prestige, most listeners here have authentic love for the music.  It reminds me a bit of when I get judged for loving a lot of abstract/contemporary art that people claim to be 'pretentious' or 'something that a 10 year old could do'...

discover new music: e.g. start [url=http://www.last.fm/listen/user/classical_more/neighbours]playing my library[/url] and read up links on my profile (e.g. my "music neighbour evolution" page, you can see there which neighbours stay same over time + listen also to their libraries, ...)
nevermind that you're projecting your own exclusion. nobody is excluding you. there's no attitude associated with classical music unless you associate the attitude with it. orchestrated music is in nearly every goddamn movie you watch and the majority of games you play, I don't think they become exercises in snobbery because of the inclusion. stereotyping 'intellectuals' is one of the most annoying reactionary movements in my opinion. is it really worth making fun of someone who likes art on the plain virtue that they like it?
That wasn't funny. (2) It was hilarious.
As much as I love me some Chopin the majority of this shite is garbage. The attitude and pretentious elitism that this "art music" creates has to be the most unpragmatic practice. It's the "pinky out" version of hipsterdom.

Totally with WasNotWhyNot - there is a difference between "classical music" and "the classical period". Bach is the first, but not the second. People get rediculously uptight about terminology on last.fm, forgetting that the meaning of words comes from what people THINK they mean. If you find yourself significantly in the minority about what a word means, you are probably wrong. The definition you have may have come first, but it everyone else now uses the term in a different way, the meaning of the word has changed.
okay I'm just going to get this fucking out of here. anyone who bitches about the classical tag, saying piecemeal stuff they learned in music history 101 or off of wikipedia, think about what you're actually accomplishing. yes bach's music is not part of the classical PERIOD but classical no longer refers to the classical period. classical is the umbrella for orchestral music and it's commonly understood and accepted. would you call bach baroque first? absolutely, just as morton feldman would be noted to be contemporary. but they're both classical, just like the kinks and my bloody valentine both play rock music.

I've heard so much Classical music from the old 90's Tom & Jerry show when I was younger, I didn't even know how much I learnt. I miss that old show, it was my favorite cartoon and the new Tom & Jerry sucks.....lol.
