Stanley Kubrick used that overture to illustrate a bit of the old ultraviolence over 40 years ago.

“A Clockwork Orange”. One of my favorites. Rather prophetic.

The parallels to the Bourbon King Louis of France grows ever more apparent with each passing day.

Maximilian Robespierre led the way for the removal of Louis XVI, and the subsequent Reign of Terror. Is that what we want for that territory once known as “The United States of America”?

Interesting comparison. The roots of the Occupy Wall Street movement are in the French Revolution, as the Tea Party movement’s roots are in the American Revolution.

Obama really meant "Oh! the state I'm in".

He must have been referring to the seven of fifty seven he'd plan on campaigning in but couldn't find it on a map.

Thanks. The original overture is 10 minutes long.

By the way, I came back to have you note that this rendition is performed live and that in all the years I've enjoyed the "Thieving Magpie" this is by far the most masterful, beautifully performed,version I've ever heard.

So many new sounds, instruments, never having heard in the two-dimensional sterile recording most will end up listening to.

I like to use classical music for the background in my videos(most of them now deleted). I had to listen to 100s on You Tube it get the sound that was just right.

Now that I know it was used in Clockwork Orange it seems even more correct.

I would ask people if they liked classical music and most would say no.
then I would ask them if they liked the old cartoons and when they said yes then I would tell them that the old catoons all had classical music

Speaking of prophetic movies of that era, I recommend “Wild in the Streets”. That movie for example, predicted down to the last detail the Clinton’s abuse of FBI files for political purposes.

For a lot of us of my generation, Warner Brothers cartoons were our introduction to classical music :) Why did they have that music? I dunno.

Popeye, the cartoon, had one very special cartoon, in which he battles Bluto on a ship, each part of the battle is perfectly synchronized with Franz Von Suppe's Poet and Peasant Overture , a magnificent symphony in the style but not in the league of the William Tell Overture, with a similarly lyrical opening to a tempestuous Sturm und Drang. Nevertheless, it's very worthy of your time as a great discovery if you aren't familiar with it.

Had it not been for Max Fleischer producer of the Popeye cartoons I certainly would never have gotten to know it.

for my part, no it isn’t. to spill blood has a cost. often this cost negates any advantage which derives from ‘winning’.

once we descend into civil war, we lose the veneer of civilized conduct that sets us above other species, or indeed, other countries. it would cease to be the united states we (or i anyway) grew up with. what would be the point of that?

One of the most beautifully depicted acts of stark raging violence ever.

Why did they have that music? I dunno.

The music was free.

There was no extensive database of music source material to search through. They could contract with musical artists to create music but using classical music did not require compensation.
