    Default What is your favourite musical era?

    I consider this to be a census of our musical tastes.

    You can vote for more than 1 period (for those who like 2 periods equally. In my case, baroque and classical)

    There is a thread on this somewhere in these forums, although it let only one option. I'm sure we will be seeing a clear spike in the Romantic era. My favourites: Classical and Romantic.

    Oh, I am sure this was asked here somewhere. How could it not be the case!

    And yes, I expect to see many votes for the Romantic period.

    I share your preference for the romantic period, although I also appreciate the others...

    There is nothing to worry about :
    Romantics have more a tendency to kill themselves than to fight!

    Off-topic: Alnitak and the Horsehead. I'm so used to hearing that name and seeing that picture that I took them for granted. Wow, this board has its share of astro-enthusiasts, doesn't it?

    Classical and Romantic are tied for me, but I picked romantic, because romantic music got me into classical music

    Those who know the Horsehead will recognise it, and those who don't and are curious will ask. Then you could tell them everything about BB-Nucleosynthesis, star formation, etc. and get them to look up at the sky every night. Also, Alnitak will not be visible if you use just the Horsehead.

    In other news, the Revolutionary Romantics have caught up with the Controversial Classicals in the race for being the favourite musical era .
