    The thread was locked down before I could post in it. Amongst QT's temper tantrums a sideline was talking about Aaron Copland...

    I have to side with Jelfish and say that you guys that are "lernt" in classical music are not so "lernt" if you think Aaron Copland stinks. Take it back right now. I may have a tantrum myself.

    Appalachian Spring (one of my all time favorites), Rodeo (the beef commercials' theme music), Lincoln Portrait (with Gregory Peck narrorating), Fanfare for the Common Man,...He is one of the most famous American composers you dolts.

    There. I said it.

    hah They're not even in the same genre! That's like saying "Wagner sucks - if you want real to listen to a real German composer, pick up Bach."

    I think you, dear cyrus, lack taste.

    I thought it was Aaron Copeland. :confused:

    And yes, he is very good.

    If that's a response to my post, I was referring to ELP's 'Trilogy' album, which features electronic arrangements of Copeland's music. Check it out.

    Aaron Copland is the composer. Kenneth Copeland is a televangelist. There's also a Copeland coorporation, which makes air conditioners.

    I concur with Fred - I love Copland's music, especially "Appalacian Spring" and "Fanfare for the Common Man", and I concur with Danger, EL&P did a great adaptation of 'Rodeo', as well as "Fanfare for the Common Man".

    I dislike Aaron Copland's music.

    Why do you all insist on mispelling his name? If this is a joke I'm not getting it. :confused:

    edit: I wasn't referring to zoob.

    I like Copland. It was amazing to see that Stallone can actually act.

    Edit:

    Oh, Copeland! He was a great drummer. I wonder if he talks with Sting anymore?

    Aahahaha, im listening to fanfair right now. In the back of my mind, I can picture a lumberjack saying, "I like to be tough....and nothing is tougher than dougs smoked sauages............." ahahahha............. (It would be good if every damn commercial did not slap this music on it and pass off their crap as a 'good commercial'). This is more like made for tv movie, sound track kind of stuff.....its no mozart, no bach.........you get my point.....its nothing special .

    I played trumpet in high school and one year for marching band (yes, I was one of "them") we did an American theme - which, of course, was heavily weighted toward Copeland: Appalachian Spring and Rodeo. But Fanfare for the Common Man (short as it is...) is just awesome.
