    Rock songs by London Symphony Orchestra

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXTtkKzLY4A&feature=related

    Its Bohemian Rhapsody by the London Symphony Orchestra. I don't know if I'm in the right forum for this or if its been discussed before but I thought I'd give it a shot. Honestly in my opinion its pretty good. Gets weird in the middle when the singing comes in and its supposed to keep building and building to this point (which it does) but it does in a weird way. But that may just be me not openning up to new things. Let me know what you think. Also its gets awesome with the drums...sounds like 80's/90's synchicizer. lol!!

    there's also this:

    Stairway to Heaven, also done by LSO.
    You can make several arguements here:
    1. You should never mess with a classic song
    2. ...especially if you try to make it sound pretty
    3 ...by doing this you've lost its power
    4. ...and taken away its complexity.

    I love orchestral versions of things, but I also love just the I don't know, "realness" or the keeping-it-original or rawness of the original.

    You could say some things are better left alone, but then again, doing new things..is ...better. I might just be totally way off base and totally looking way into this but its an opinion I thought I'd express here.

    Also, I don't know anything about orchestra music or any of its technical stuff I just know what I like. Is there anything about this technically that works or doesn't work? just curious.
