Three posts in 24 hours! Well, why not :)

This time, it's on music. Specifically, music I like

I'm into classical music, as are quite a few other people. This said, I'll listen to most music (not rap, and numerous other strange stuff that masquerades as music) if it grabs my ears in a nice way.

One of my major likes are good Movie theme tracks. I recently found an excellent site devoted to them, too - Streaming Sound Tracks; it runs several streams of music formats, from Ogg to MP3 (see the site for more information), but here's a hint: Get a copy of WinAmp, if you don't already have one!

An example of the variety of music on offer from the several THOUSAND albums available to request...

Pan's Labyrinth
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith
The Best Of LucasArts, The
X TV OST, Vol. 1
Alvin And The Chipmunks
Back To The Future Part III
League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The
Independence Day
Dark Blue Almost Black
Homeward Bound
Final Fantasy, The Spirits Within
Mrs. Doubtfire
The Untouchables
Dracula Battle II Perfect Selection
Radio Flyer
Star Trek 8, First Contact

And that's just the playlist to be played over the next hour as I write this! Now, note that that's not just movie soundtracks, there are some of the better tracks from recent computer games (for example, recent 3-d 'role playing games' of the kind where a music CD is supplied with the game for background music), as well as some of the better-scored television series out there; all genres appear to be catered for, so it's well worth having a good look

There are even links to let you buy the albums in the vast majority of cases!

Oh, and no, I don't work for them, or got any form of payment for this review - it just so happens that I like the stuff they put out, and think you might too
