    Have to be honest and admit that this popular album is where and how I was introduced to a lot of classical tracks...

    Anybody else remember these albums?

    I think I might have another "Hooked On" album where the songs are set to a disco beat.
    I'll have to look 4 it, but I don't have your talent for putting it here. I am going to look 4 it!

    How much of the album do you have playing on here? I went online to do a search for other "Hooked" &
    cut it off. There are many more of these & now they have them on C D'S & MP3's. Image these being
    brought into the modern age. You & I must be in the same time-line. Only you've kept up with the tech.
    better then I. HA,HA,HA Thanks again for the memory◆◆◆♡♡♡:emoji_blush:

    Yes, I believe it's the full album that somebody has posted on youtube.

    I looked on wikepedia to see how many of these albums there officially were and they list the following.

    Apparently other orchestras released similar albums, but these guys are where it all started.

    I am not sure what the one you mention with the disco beat will be called. but if you find it in your collection, do let me know. :emoji_alien:

    :emoji_relaxed:The classical that I am listening to at the moment is Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi. I luv it a lot and constantly listen to it at home or at work. Vivaldi was a truly brilliant in his musical craft.

    Shostakovich 9th Symphony! I have it on CD with Beethoven's 5th - a favorite to play in the car.

    This will be playing in my headphones when I finally start my killing spree. Fitting, no?

    Back when I was still proficient on the piano, this was my go to piece. I remember many times in college, sitting in the music room, playing this, and the girls would just have to come in and sit with me, the sensitive guy who played beautiful music. Ah...those were the days.

    Possibly my favourite piece of classical music... Although there are some other very close contenders.

    If you have two hours to spare, this is the way to spend them.

    A comfortable armchair with a footstool in a darkened room...

    I started playing this to relax & nodded off. It played all the way thru, drained my battery which took hours to recharge. And, the device was also corded so I don't know why it would drain. I've played Pandora ALL night with no draining. Will not do that again. I'll stick to Claire de Lune & Pandora...

    It must have been the moonlight that did it. :emoji_confused:

    I played it back on my PS3, via my widescreen HD TV with no probs... Either way, it is very relaxing. :emoji_relaxed:
