Do you have a "Can't stand it" piece?

Do you have a "Can't stand it" piece? A piece of music that you listen to that you consider to be so beautiful that you have a hard time listening to it? One of mine is Chopin's etude op 25 no 12 in c minor. If there is such a thing as the sounds of Angels singing, this is what it would sound like IMO.

         All those arpeggios come off melodramatic to me.  It's like the locomotive is about to run over the damsel in distress tied to the railroad tracks.  Chopin has better work, like his nocturne no. 8.  That's a piece I can't let go of.

  • I disagree, and I am totally with Gav here. This piece is ingenious, beautiful and extremely sophisticated. It is also extremely dramatic. But then...  people have different tastes and perceptions. 

    As far as the original question is concerned, there are many many pieces ( including other pieces of Chopin) which I find stunningly beautiful, but I have no problem listening to these pieces. However,it goes a bit in waves for me which ones I like most.

  •       It's 42 degrees.  The hot dogs are cold and the beer is warm.  The White Sox are behind by 11 to 2 in the bottom of the sixth, and Harry Cary comes on and sings, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

  • That Johann is a real Weisenheimer.

  • You forgot Ranch, pardner.

  • I don't speak German either.  I just say,  "Ich weis nicht."  It seems to work.  Anyway anybody knows it's spelled Anzer.

    Another thread strangled to death. Not sure which is worse, people arguing about each other's favorite pieces (remember, it's all subjective, you ninnies!), or people descending once again into the realm of the bizarre (or is it banal?).

         I've been away from the forum for a few weeks, and it is somewhat refreshing to get my fix of banality.

  • So what are we speaking now, Kenyabonics?  Obomba is no more fluent in his second language than Dub ya was.

    Lawrence, I didn't actually forget Ranch. I just stopped speaking it  when "Dub-Ya" ascended to the throne
