A style of music only some people can appreciate. Not many pre-teens and teenagers my age like it (I think that's because they want to be "cool"). I like classical, and rock. They're broad, but they're both pretty cool. Classical's always going to be "classic." Maybe in like 20 years, rock'll go out of fashion. Maybe I'll still like rock then, but I don't think it'll be that big. Classic examples of composers around the classical period are Mozart, Beethoven, and a lot others, check them out at your local music store.....classical can be wild and loud and sometimes it can be soft and calm. Don't think that listening to one classical piece will determine what the whole genre is like.
I, myself, have liked classical for a while. My graphics site is classicalgraphics.tk, I have ClassicalFonts, my screen names have to do with classical.....but that's all another thing.

Classical music is the height of music. It embodies the emotion of the creator and the listener. The genre varies from lighthearted frilly tunes to dark tunes.
As the Real Gangsta should probably realize, today's music is no match for classical music, seeing as how today's music contains no real emotion whatsoever and is mostly negative (against the establishment and so forth). Classical music varies in range and is still considered the greatest type of music created.
Classical music rules all the noise existing today.

A type of music that surpasses all others because it doesn't involve computer generated beats and even more shockingly, no lyrics about bustin' a whitey's ass with lead!

Rap has no true emotion behind it. True composers like Gustav Mahler and Dmitri Shostakovich were intelligent and put real emotion into their music. Rap doesn't have any feeling so it makes you think of nothing while you are listening to it. Classical does contain lyrics in the case of Opera and Church music and if you don’t understand the language, that’s YOUR fault!

The majority of listeners are intelligent people who refuse to listen to Rap because of how bad it sounds. Classical music is still being composed today and has never been better. Some modern composers are Leondard Bernstein and John Rutter.

Everybody knows that Rappers got famous because the majority of moron Americans would rather listen to “Come and lick my lollipop, you cunt!” rather than listen to true beautiful emotion classical music.

Anyone can rap:
1: Think of some horrible lyrics about violence, drugs, rape, and misogyny
2: Repeat step 1 six times
3: Invite 5 of ya gang around
4: Give them a microphone and and a synthesizer
5: Give each person a different sheet with random notes
6: Record the result
7: Get some dumbass MTV person to broadcast your shit.

Most movies these days only classical music a.k.a. real music rather than that fucking rap shit like 8 Mile, the worst movie ever made.

The reason classical is only played during movies nowadays is because:
1: If they played rap, people would die
2: The movie industry is too civilized for Rap.
3: Rap artists like 50 cent have too many hoes to fuck and ain’t got no time to to movie music.

Classical will remain popular whereas in about 10 years rap will go out of style. People have been fans of classical music for centuries!

Classical is not boring. There’s more to classical than slow violin and piano pieces. Have you ever heard Shostakovich? Have you ever heard Mahler? I suggest buying “Shostakovich Symphony No. 4” and tell me what you think!
Non-music: 50 cent, Chingy, Nelly, Ludacris, Ja Rule, The Game, and all that other shit!
Music: Gustav Mahler, Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninov, Peter Tchaikovsky, Camille Saint-Saens, Johann Bach, Wolfgang Mozart, Ludwig Beethoven, and much more…

1) A period of music ranging from the middle 1700s to the early 1800s. Famous classical composers include Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn.

2) A bastardization of all "traditional" types of music (orchestral, choral, etc.). Derived from the classical period. Other periods include prehistoric, medieval, renaissance, baroque, romantic, 20th century, and 21st century.

3) The true pinnacle of music in which true musicianship, expressiveness, technique, and skill are essential elements in its performance. To truly listen to classical music one must be able to listen to it on entirely different levels of thinking.
The only classical music that most people have listened to is the ambient, therapeutically-designed background music at Barnes & Noble.

A musical period that lasted from around 1730 to 1820. Leading composers included Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. It is characterised by complex melodies, large orchestral pieces, and many different forms of compositon like the sonata. Classical music often requires 'Active Listening' to feel the full effect of the music, as opposed to the 'Passive Listening' many are used to when listening to modern music. Classical music also rarely has a lyrical part, and can be written for any number of instruments, from one to over one hundred.
Beethoven's fifth is one of the most widely known Classical pieces, with the opening melody having been compared to 'Fate, knocking on the door.'
