As long as we're in the business of telling each other what to do, you should probably stop obsessing over Janson. Nobody else is amused by these posts and it's clearly an unhealthy fixation on your part.

Not only do I never provoke or initiate these encounters, I don't even do it while "hidden".

Anyways, would any of you happen to have any favorites by any chance? Specifically, ones I didn't mention.

OK. I'll obsess over you since you seem to need the attention. Janson's getting boring anyways. The guy has no sense of humor.

Sad. Has to hide himself from people because he's too wimpy to face the truths.

I have no interest in attention. I get enough of that in real life. I'd just rather be spared your dull diatribes on this site. And, not to be presumptuous, but I think I speak for everyone else when I say that.

So, lux, do you have any recommendations of songs/composers which I didn't list?

As someone who over the course of my years posting on RT has genuinely like lux, I don't want to pile on him. I'd be happy if he just reverted to his old ways of name dropping random films and being a fucking weirdo (no insult, so am I). But as long as his ridiculous inability to stop making painfully unfunny complaints against Jinnistan continues, he has created a situation where it's impossible for me to even engage with the guy.

Seriously, just stop. Please.

Can't say I do. Not a big listener of classical music.

It's OK. Everyone just ignored me. I'll be sure to mention RT and its denizens in my suicide note.

Trying to stay with a couple of topics in this thread, I will say I enjoy most of the works of the Mighty Handful.

I'm by no means a classical expert and really should get into it more, but in the spirit of the thread, here's a piece I like. The opening bit (Minotaur) sounds a bit like Bernard Herrmann to me.



A Top 10 list is not something I'm prepared to compile at the moment.
