Pray tell, what's on your iPod?

A mixture of things but quite a bit of classical music (variety of composers, although my favourites are Gershwin and Khachaturian). I also have a lot of soundtracks (from musicals mostly) and a fair bit of John Williams' music. Any film scores you recommend?

The only thing I know from Gershwin is Rhapsody in Blue. I've never heard of Khachaturian, nor would I even know where to begin pronouncing that name.

I started my score collection with James Horner's Apollo 13; Hans Zimmer's Hannibal wasn't too far behind. I like Zimmer, though I think he has John Williams disease (he repeats himself. But if you get into Horner's work, you'd think the disease should be nammed after him.)

John Powell's Bourne Ultimatum and Mr. & Mrs. Smith should be among your collection as should Thomas Newman's American Beauty, Meet Joe Black and Road to Perdition.

I shall check those ones out. Thanks :)

Khachaturian's most famous piece would be Sabre Dance, which I'm sure everyone has heard once or twice in their life.

I have Googled. It had a familiar ring to it. I liked it.

We've played Sabre Dance a couple of times in the concert band I'm in. Very energetic.
