Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare & Ludwig von Beethoven - Symphony No. 5
...chosen by Uncle Deadly

Oh dear, it is far too difficult to select one piece of music as my favorite. So please, allow me to cheat and choose two. Naturally, I am predisposed to the classics. And so, upon surveying my record collection (all vinyl, of course), I have chosen two disparate, albeit not dissimilar compositions: Ludwig Von Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, and Alice Cooper’s Welcome To My Nightmare. Not only do Ludwig and Alice have the same haircut, but they both know how to capture the zeitgeist, imbue ones soul with passion... and has a really good beat that makes you want to get up and get down.
