What's Really Up With This?

Postby Cioffd » Tue Jul 28, 2009 3:11 am

Dude,

I came here seriously looking for a list of the best classical music that has EVER been composed. The vast majority of the songs on your top 100 list are drivel. It's like you picked songs based on their pop culture significance, and not on any actual rating of the quality of the music. How did Beethoven's Fifth ever get on that list, let alone get FIRST? The only reason it's there is because it's popular, and the only reason it's popular is because the tune is so simple that even the most mindless idiots had no problem committing it to memory! That's true of tons of the other ones too, and to put Toccata and Fugue in the top ten was nothing short of stupid. That list is absolute garbage; only a few of the songs were even salvageable.

Yes, our website states pretty clearly:

"Kickass Classical features Classical Music's Top 100 Greatest Hits based on their exposure in today's pop culture."

Here's our train of thought:

The quality of a piece of music is subject to opinion. When public opinion embraces a piece of music (especially millions of people over hundreds of years), it is considered to be popular. So popularity is based on quality.

That's the entire basis of this website, and it's worked out pretty well so far.

We're not exactly sure what you're looking for, but we sincerely hope you find it.
