    Even more troubling is the fact that "Fish Heads" by Barnes & Barnes was omitted.

    If it was only non-classical 'pieces', I would suggest you to change the title but since you crossbred music with non-classical music and posted it in the Non-classical Forum (which is also weird), I'll see...
    Well, I wouldn't put any of them in the 'top 50', especially Nos. 1-4, 7. As for Handel, not bad, not bad, but have you heard about 'Messiah'?

    Cage's 4' 33' is the most perfect piece ever written. It's always different, yet always the same length.

    No Mozart? No JS Bach? And with popular music there have been quite a few songwriters who have produced very well crafted melodies.

    Are you comparing Mr. Bach and Mr. Mozart to Pink Floyd? The count is one to million...
    Me still wonders why 8?

    I haven't heard a single piece or work by Mozart or Bach that comes close to matching the majesty of Pink Floyd's Echoes, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Dogs, Time or Comfortably Numb.

    Meh, why not? Those eight are the ones that are currently on my mind. I could have added two more, but they would have been superfluous, and I could have cut three, but then they'd be missed.

    I was comparing more to Handel.

    This really makes me wonder if you're not a trolling account and this whole thread is not ment to be a provocation. Honestly, I would like to belive that.

    Still, Pink Floyd compose better, especially Fugues and Madrigals.

    Echoes is a fine piece. I love it a lot, especially Roger Waters' spooky pteradactyl calls in the intermezzo section. Also the lyrics top most of those you can find in classical music in my opinion. But more majestic than Bach?

    You must be doing it wrong.

    I will admit that electronics give 20th century musicians and composers an advantage over those who came before.

    I am not a troll, I'm merely trying to let people know where my tastes lie. I prefer Pink Floyd to Mozart and Bach. This is just how it is right now.
