Today I thought I’d just ask one question, based on some comments I got on another challenge I host. It’s been niggling at my mind since. The original question was “Would You Rather Hear The Music Of Johann Sebastian Bach Played By A Barbershop Quartet, Or A Heavy Metal Band?” (SYW from March 7th, 2022). Some of the answers I got were very interesting, although most participants preferred the Heavy Metal version of Bach to a Barbershop Quartet.
For instance this one from Marilyn of “Serendipity”:
The BBC series “Soul Music™” also lists seven other songs inspired by classical music. You can read about that here.
Do you have a favorite song or instrumental based on or featuring a piece of classical music?
I was looking for such a topic and found this interesting. Apparently the classical rock song “Whiter Shade of Pale” by Procol Harum has been considered to have been based on Bach’s “Air on a G String.” A podcast by Musicologist, Allan Moore deconstructs the idea. You can listen to that, if you are interested by clicking here .
