Okay, last one.

And thanks to Rebecca Black, I now hate Fridays as much as Mondays. Good grief...

DevilDriver. Any of their albums. It's positive metal. Something to get the blood pumping. Music that I would listen to before a battle. When depression & anxiety try invade, I fight back!

Spared you all the "Top Gun" clips. I hate the movie except for the actual star.

Here is the "How to add Video" link for some of you having issues. Simple when you know how.

I've heard it but if I am being honest I don't care for it too much. The tempo is a little fast for me and the high hats are obtrusive. It's very "Rave" which is fine but I like how many of Deadmau5' songs build up and give your brain a chance to really take in the melody(in this case that of "Clockwork Orange").

Edit: Also FYI, you probably do know this(maybe others don't) but neither "Deadmau5" or "Cygnus-X" came up with the melody. They are remixes of the movie Clockwork Orange's main theme:

Any song from any song from Killem all, ride the lightning. Or ...and justice for all.

I totally agree with you

The Cygnus X version are way to rave/trance for me too.
I was just informing..

You might not know this but the "Orange theme" from Clockwork Orange is
based on "Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary the second of england" by Henry purcell ;-)

A real classic.

Ha, I did not know that actually.

Actually I've heard that classical piece before so I'm not really sure why I didn't connect the dots on that one.

Soooo....we all have skeletons in the closet right. Things we like to keep to ourselves. Secret pleasures and such.

Mind you, I am very much a metal head and I prefer my music the fast, hard and loud with such bands as All that Remains, Diecast, Upon a burning Body, Chimaira, Amon Amarth...ect. You get the idea.

Below are some of my old go too's when i am feeling down.

Bonnie Tyler - I Need a Hero

Wilson Phillips - Hold On

Kenny G - Forever in Love

Don't judge me...

Great stuff :-)
Actually I know a couple more songs thats based on classical music.
There's "Jon Hopkins . Second Sense" based on a piece by Thomas Tallis
called "Spem in Alium" that was supposedly written for Queen Elizabeth the 1'sts
40'stst(sorry dont know how to spell or phrase myself :-)) birthday in 1573.
401 years older than myself.

Also theres the Ferry Corstens remake of Henry Barber's "Adagio for strings", the song
used in the movie Platoon. I like prefer the original.

And finally there are 2 albums by William Orbit called Pieces in a modern style vol 1 & 2.

I also have the following, wich I think is sampled from Beethovens symphony 9 allegretto.
Iam not 100% sure but Ill include the video anyways as it is quite funny

If you know any modern mixes of old classics please do tell.

Sorry guys if I went abit off-topic but yo this is important stuff.

Btw, my favorite Deadmau5 tracks are "Strobe" and "Raise your weapon, the Noisia remix".
Pumps me up any day of the week (tho I prefer it on weekends)

You know, I actually remixed "Ride of the Valkyries" which turned out pretty awesome but it's on my other computer which won't turn on at the moment and I'm not sure what's wrong with it. I need to start housing my works in progress online somehow.

That Batman video was awesome. I will have to send it to my brother, he'll get a kick out of it.

Here's another good "Deadmau5" tune that's not as popular and little more upbeat, but I like it:

Also in terms of classical remixes I would like to do or listen to:

-Song to the Moon(Rusalka)

Also, Nessun Dorma would make a great remix.

Ooo didnt hear that mau5 track before, I like it very much, thanks.

But eh, you're into making your own tracks/mixes?
What coincidence, I too is into making & producing music :-)
Also I have tried remixing classic tracks with no luck.
This one isnt a classic but I think it could do with some beat and sounds,
however the tempo fluctuates a bit and there are no drums so Iam having
a hard time warping it in ableton live.
Heres the track I'd like to beef up; Brian Eno - An ending.

I liked that Song to the Moon.
Do tell if you do your own mix! :-)

Thanks again, u da man!
