Long Shot's Music ESSENTIALS: Part I

Doing a deep dive on, well, everything. Starting with the classical boys (and gals) because they did this shit first. Some elite tunes that even the most jaded oldies-hating millennial noob can enjoy. Updating this list as I work my way through these various composer's oeuvres. Track picks will be listed in the descriptions; otherwise, assume that I am recommending the entire composition/album. https://open.spotify.com/user/karatedrummer/playlist/2nFCiksY3cVkte2A683XUi?si=dse3i-f9SOeczCQXC-ZpKg if you'd like to access a more in-depth list of elite jams. Remember: this list is JUST MY OPINION, friends!
