Music! for All Hallow's Grimm

Today, Magaly's  question is "Share the title of a song that becomes your gentle light when darkness threatens to blind, and turns into your soothing darkness when the light promises to burn."  

Turns out, I have a few! Here they are: 
    Nummer eins is always   Dvorak: Symphony #9 'From the New World'
This is closely followed by Carl Orff: Carmina Burana , 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' (Peer Gynt) , Respighi 'Pines of Rome' , Smetana's Ma Vlast (part one) , Smetana's Ma Vlast (part 2) , Corvus Corax 'Fortuna' ,
& Corvus Corax 'Ragnarok' .

When I need a quick laugh, I turn to one of my newest happy songs: That's the way I like it .  The clip is long because context is important! :)

Now, when the brightness burns to much, anything by Rammstein (played esp. loud) gets my shadows laughing & dancing!



  1. Rammstein have been the source of great amusement to me also. When playing with my son on Guitar Hero he told me to pick a song...I chose Rammstein. The lyrics were in german lol and I still got 82%..he was furious and impressed all at the same time :D XXX

    1. Ha! :)) If you want translations to the lyrics (with some explanation of the thought process) is the place to go. Just click on the British flag icon for American/English.

  2. It's too late for jamming, but tomorrow... I'll rock this place with your tunes!

  3. I remember discovering Corvus Corax on a Faeriecon compilation CD. Good stuff!

  4. I was looking for a more current post, but realized I agree on many of your choices, if asked to choose classical music.

  5. I was just checking on you, hope all is well
