I do,some of the best tunes of my teenager years have been nicked by souless marketeers and advertising morons,an utter disgrace!

I've no idea,generally I don't listen to classical music.

Someone's sure to come along now declaring a lot of pop music has been stolen from the classics.

Right again r2, 'roll over Beethoven' for example and Jeff Lynnes Electric Light Orchestra, they took over, abused and improved classical music, one of my favourite pop groups :wink:

A lot of pop music is derived from Pachelbel's Canon - particularly the chord progressions, from Ralph McTell to Oasis. Also Bach's Jesu Joy of man's desiring.

You're way of the mark and out of time,Roll over Beethoven is a Chuck Berry song from the '50's who was one of the founders of Rock n Roll which was born out of Jazz,of course traced back to classics,ELO just classicised it a bit with the Beethoven intro which Berry didn't.
FWIW I find classical music stuffy and stale,which are my own feelings of much of it,I do like some modern 'classical' stuff Karl Jenkins,Philip Glass,though Glass can go on a bit.
Classical singing is similaly boring to me though Maria Callas' voice I find incredible smoothing,as for the male classical voice generally it does nothing for me at all.

The unspeakable in pursuit of the unbeatable

That used to be used to describe fox hunting, now it could refer to a trip to shopping heaven
