Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What one peice of classical music sums up images for you?................For some its Wagner "Ride of the Valkyries" for me its Samuel Barber "Adagio for Strings" .........the reason? It was the peice of music playing when one of the lads in the Zepce Hilton had an ND resulting in a PEZZ Head and his mate with a scarred face and a lot of bad dreams.
  2. the nimrod, best piece of music ever. followed by high on the hill.
  3. Good choices .but why???? :wink:
  4. Mozart 40 in G...

    Always have it going through my head prepping for attacks, and on the assault run in

    Most strange
  5. I have a likeing for that classical piano stuff that you hear the pilots play before take off (usually BA flights). Haven't a clue who or what, but it's smooth and soft (like me) and relaxing before take off.

    It's most likely to be the 'Flower Duet' from 'Lakme' by Delibes.

    Music that does it for me:

    'Entry of the Queen of Sheba' - Bach
    '1812 Overture' - Tchaikovsky (probably because it's about the Frogs getting beaten)
    'Spitfire Prelude' - Walton
  7. You cool bastrad. 8) R U an officer?
  8. VB must be because just like any officer he has his information wrong :D

    It would be:

    "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" by Handel

    Entry just conjures up images of sexual debaucherywhich though entertaining to watch were I believe not what Handel had in mind 8O :twisted: 8)
  9. ...but I thought ORs 'came', officers 'arrived'. Therefore LWM, you must be an orrificer!
  10. Feck.thats a bit harsh Norm 8O ......I was too good so they decided to keep me an OR 8)
  11. Beethoven's symphony no 3.....
    Would be hard pressed to decide which part,
    But if I had to probably be Fidelio...
    All string and waltzes...
    Perfect! 8)

    Opps forgot the image it conjures up! duh!
    It's the whole stage production... breathtaking!
    Like mime, but it tugs at you!
    All passion and energy!
    Silly! :oops:

    But it's still David Gray to study to!
  12. Good on yer LWM. Couldn't resist the dig tho'

    Quite correct, LWM. My error is quite an achievement, as I have listened to the piece so often, and read the sleeve notes so many times.

    Damned batman must have put something in me mornin' tea....
  14. its what he stirred it with that one has to be concerned about 8O
