Ok, some of you know I am a big fan of classical music.....(and maybe some of you don't care one way or the other)...

But what I find interesting is that all forms of modern music have their root in classical music, and that nothing new is really new at all!

Here are some examples:

Rapping (as in RAP Music and Hip Hop) is actually a technique known as "Sprechgesang".

The "slapping" that rockabilly bassists do is actually just a variation of the "Bartok Pizz".

Exotica music as we know it was not really invented in the 40's and 50's, but actually had it's start with Debussy, who attended a world fair and was exposed to Javanese gamelan ensembles....and if you go back even further to the time of Mozart, there was a "Turkish" fashion movement that was very popular at the time (accurately demonstrated in the movie "Amadeus"....)

so there it is!

"Rap Music" is an oxymoron

Surf bands also have incorporated classical.
Originally covered by the Avengers VI in the mid 60s
But done here by a modern band. And others have done it too.
