Song of the Day


Bach - Cello Suite No. 1

------------I have a music exam tomorrow morning, so I thought I'd add to my studies and to your classical music repitoire by giving you some good ol' late baroque period compositions. This piece, which you have heard on a Sprint phone commercial here and there, is only two minutes and 37 seconds long, but is more detailed than 90 percent of music produced in the 21st century. I mean, look at that serious face, that's the face of a serious composer with serious credentials to write a serious composition. Seriously.
While classical compositions may not jive with your Lamb of God or Paramore, this piece can be appreciated for its tradition and complexity. Plus, it's a great nap-time song, or if you're filming an indie movie with falling leaves or flower petals or Zach Braff's in it, this song might make the unexpected cut for the soundtrack. Ya never know....
