Crown, Coats, or SOA. This could be beautiful on the field. I love this version more than the original. Progressive rock with an organ line based on Bach's Air for the G String, what could be better?

 

Sorry kids of today.....THIS is music!!!  A timeless masterpiece for a bygone epoch with rebellion, imagination and fantasy.  All your f-bombed peppered "lyrics" and computer generated beats have no soul.  

Now get off my lawn

Jazz Spanish British For the love of God, wont someone PLEASE play something different than the usual over arranged symphonic drivel that every Corps is playing???

How old are you? I’m going to assume 60+ based upon your postings.  “and...cleavage.” Really? You do know the age of the women who march, right? That’s downright gross on your part. Ewwwwww

Seriously good idea. Drum Corps is totally too over intellectual. There's simply no way to market Drum Corps to the masses. One of many reasons DC has died is the music, drills, and theatrical element

don't forget that a big part of the song's "soul" and timelessness is that it is derived from bach.

THANK YOU for posting this!  I didn't know it existed and I've watched it dozens of times since.  After "Ave Marie" I want this played at my funeral.  Didn't realize the organ part was based on Bach, so that means Procol Harum was one of the first, if not the first, progressive rock bands.  

Had we survived, the Kingsmen could have done this one justice too.

This is a show that is almost a no-brainer, but will not (and should not) be done: 

A Clockwork Orange.  The music, esp 'The Glorious Ninth of Ludwig van' is absolutely central to the show, and if you want to use what is in the movie, could include Wm Tell Overture, Pomp & Circumstance, Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, & Singin' in the Rain.

The problem is that the story is ultra-violent, with a brutal rape & a rape / murder central to the story.  So it will never be done.  But the music is really good.

Was at live concert by Navy Commodores Jazz Band this weekend for Veterans Day celebration. Their arrangement of "Internal Conflict" by music greats CHICAGO struck a good ear with many parts seeming apt for BD, Bloo, or Cadets under Bocook. Sorry, I don't have a link.
