I thought it was brilliant choice of music for a flashmob, not your usual piece. I was brought up listening to classical music, too.

PF, you have me searching YouTube for more pieces so I can listen to them. Thanks.
i don't know if it's true, but i read somewhere that bolero was written to help an orchestra warm up their instruments (and themselves, i guess) on stage before a concert.

I introduced my boss (in the record store) to Ravel's Bolero, she really enjoyed the music and turned it up full blast one morning before the store was open, we wer often found working before opening with some riotous classical music playing so it could be heard across the street. We played "In the Hall of the Mountain King," by Edvard Grieg, so loud it was making the plate glass windows bow out.

I thought Ravel's Bolero was written for Bo Derek...

Hmmm...it was written for Russian Ballerina Ida Rubenstien. It was a partial experiment on taking a repeating phrase, not developing it, but adding in more orchestral instruments. Cool!

LOL! Laser Dots. My two will sit and stare at the spot on the floor waiting for it to come back if I turn it off.
