I want this playing at my funeral.

You heard it here first. I want "Holiday for Strings" just blaring as they're rolling my box down the aisle. Laughing

Why Can't Streaming Services Get Classical Music Right?

Okay so I'm not actually listening to this, but it sums up my frustration with e.g. Pandora when it comes to classical pieces.
Turns out all the frustrating vagueness with classical streaming in general is exactly because of classical's qualities: organized by movements, performed by enormous numbers of people, recorded enormous numbers of times by enormous numbers of composers, recompiled enormously.
All that adds up to a LOT of metadata, way more than typical popular music where you don't need to know much beyond title/artist/album/year. It's too much for mainstream services like Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes to cope with. They'd basically need special interfaces just to handle classical music.

James Brown would make a terrifying priest. Clutching his cross. Yelling at your dead corpse.

GET UP!

Get on uppa

GET UP!

(through gritted teeth) Get on uppa

(pleadingly) Stay on the scene

I can 100% see this. Classical music on the whole has a way more complicated system of organization than modern music. For example:

"Moonlight Sonata", Piano Sonata No. 14 in C# minor, "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27 , No. 2, Third Movement, composed by Ludwig Van Beethoven, performed by Valentina Lisitsa.

You've got a clusterfuck of major and minor classifications (like Opus and Number), movement numbers, keys, formal and informal titles, composers, arrangers, and performers that isn't standardized at all - different composers have different numbering systems for works (for example, the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (BWV) system that is solely for numbering works by J.S. Bach). From a technical standpoint as a streaming service or music store trying to organize classical music into something that would properly fit the modern framework of Artist-Track-Album would be almost impossible.

And then there's opera's where many pieces don't have an official name and will be known by the first line (in one of many languages) or the name of the character singing it or just some random line that the publisher liked
