The Station Without The Attitude?

Nicole Marie <BR>Member <P> posted 07-30-2002 03:30 PM <BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR>Time to say goodbye is one of the worst pieces I have ever heard. It is a terrible classical crossover piece. Not to mention that Bocelli and Brightman drag down the good name of classical music with this piece. Call me a classical music snob...I live up to that easily.<BR>--------------------<P>Nicole Marie <P>------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR>Well Nicole,<BR> as much as I love you, I never thought you where into 'Character destroying' the same as JN.<P>If your'e a classical music snob surely you shouldn't be on 'The Station Without The Attitude' I thought the whole idea of b.com was, to play classical music without the snobbery.<P>Regards,<BR>Lliam. :confused:

You've got to be kidding! What I believe and how my company is designed do not have to match (I'm sure my bosses will back me on this one). I do have my own opinions and one is that Time to Say Goodbye is a train crash. As a classical musician (I even have the degree to match) I am so turned off by the hack job Bocelli and Brightman sing on that recording. <P>As for Without the Attitude, I think I do have one. I will play the request when I receive it but I don't have to enjoy it. I love my job and the people I work with and most of all the listeners (that makes my day...getting to meet all of you). But to say that because I don't like a piece contradicts my job is crazy. My job is my job and I love it and my opinion about the evil Time to say goodbye is just that...my opinion.

I agree with the lovely Nicolle Marie. Opinion need not equal attitude! :p<BR>Oh yeah - I kinda like Time to Say Goodbye, and Bocelli and Brightman. So sue me...<p>[ 08-01-2002: Message edited by: tancred ]

I'm not someone who is won over because someone says "but I said I love you." Ask my husband. <P>I have an opinion, I don't understand why you think I need to be more rational. I'm trying to have a normal conversation about this but it seems that is not possible. When you want to discuss in a rational way why I can't stand that piece, let me know.

Lliam -- it's the <I>station</I> that doesn't have an attitude. The announcers have all sorts of attitudes. In fact, anyone who has a spine has an attitude of some sort. The station is more or less neutral; the employees of the station are opinionated -- sort of like you.

There's plenty of attitude (= opinion) on the bulletin board, and too little attitude (= snobbery) on the station. Classical music (at least the best of it) IS several cuts above other types of music. It was developed by brilliant minds over centuries, and, therefore, reached much farther beyond the primitive than any other music.<P>I find Time to Say Goodbye cloying (double attitude = snobbish + opinionated). I think Brightman has a beautiful voice and Bocelli a dead one (due to his impairment). However, I think they are both over-marketed, and I resent that on behalf of lesser known, more deserving talents.<P>Personally, I would appreciate people explaining what it is they like or don't like about a musical piece or a performance. There was once a critique that went something like " Last night Miss Jones played Beethoven. Beethoven lost." That critique, however clever, was criticized for the total lack of explanation. It's easy to like or dislike. It takes a little effort to figure out why, but it's a good exercise in reasoning.<BR>Shos-with-the-big-time-attitude-over-classical-music.

As a reenactor, I can assure you that going "regimental" (nekkid)in a kilt is a grand experience to say the least! :eek:

For god's sake, man. Whats the big deal. All Nicole said was that she didn't like a few people. Its not that big of deal. Just let it go. <P>I'm sure that Nicole listnes to many other things that she would consider good and probably listens to them when she's done with work and I'm sure you Lliam do the same, but for god's sake calm down. <P><BR>-Brodie

Nicole, if you and your on air partners were not opinionated and able and willing to express your opinions, I would be listening to a 256kbs NPR station feed without commercials!

Nicole will get no criticism from me for liking Philip Glass. One of the last concerts I attended was his violin concerto. Really, <I>really</I>, <B>really</B>, interesting, including all the repetition. I don't know how he makes saying the same thing 20 times fascinating, but Glass is one of my favorite modern composers!<P>Now, if I were to say what I feel about Mozart, I'm sure I'd get an earful from lots of CM fans out there!
