    Do you listen to classical music?

    I am curious and will simply leave this poll going for a while....
    How many members do listen to classical music, any classical music?

    Classical music is always my first choice when traveling about town or at home, like now, listening to streaming audio or internet radio, whilst I peruse these forum pages.

    You're asking members of a classical music forum if they listen to classical music? What a strange question.

    some guy, giving the benefit of the doubt, maybe the info that's trying to be extracted is how many from this forum really do listen to classical music and perhaps how often or rarely is also a good info. why? because it tells us how many are real classical listeners and how many are just lurkers to this forum or how many are just curious.

    just like if i go to the hard rock forum when i really don't listen to it, and the same question is asked pertaining to hard rock, i could have answered 'never' because i just was curious what's happening in that forum.

    Classical Music and Jazz - That's my melody - pop and some rock are only a temporary diversion for my busy brain.

    Twenty five years ago I would have said "never do!".

    Ten years ago I would have said: "More than any other music".

    Now it is a mixed bag. I play anything I like and I like a lot.

    Classical music equals 4% - Jazz equals 90% - Blues/Rock equals 6 %.

    I´ve just had the pure luck on a sunny tuesday morning to listen to Behnam, the genius of classical compositions.

    I see you have a new sentence ""Wise men learn from other's experiences whilst fools only learn from their own experiences" -Otto von Bismarck-".

    It´s not true either of the suggestions by Otto von Bismarck. You only have to look at the upstart, the fake President George W. Bush Jr.??? He and his neo conservative Republicans and their initiated www.newamericancenturyprogram do not listen to experiences of others nor stats. on american wars provoked by America.

    Intet,

    Irregardless of who is the President of this or that country, von Bismarck's observation stands the test of time very well thank you. Von Bismarck's observation is not negated just because someone disagrees with another country's President.

    Cheers,

    Let´s put it to the test then:

    Bay of Pigs - disaster, defeat
    Korea - disaster, defeat
    Vietnam - multiple human disaster, defeat
    First Gulf War - disaster and defeat
    Iraq - astronomical economical and human disaster and defeat

    or two boys and a lit candle light.

    One boy puts his finger into the lit candle light. It hurts.

    Do you think the other boy learns from the experience of the first boy, or do you think, he will try himself???

    Intet,

    It really doesn't matter what conflicts you do or don't bring up - von Bismarck's observations are not negated.

    For me it's more than "Sporadically. It's a mixed bag" but less than "More than any other music". I guess jazz is about 80% of it all.
    Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.
