    @Zed: While there`s no denying the excellence of the LSO, for my tastes the electric guitar, vocals, and drum kit kind of take away from the classical music experience. I actually prefer this arrangement with no rock instruments or vocals.

    Very nice. The timpani could have dug in a little harder though.

    @Squrlz4Sale : I`d prefer a pure orchesta version too, but this one was quite lame to my ears, and the violin part... well... almost out of tune.

    Some parts were brilliantly done, but there was something funky going on in the horns section, and the trumpet hit a couple of sour notes during his solo. The viola seemed to be having timing issues, which I think lends to your thinking she was almost out of tune, Zed68. Again, parts of this were brilliant, but the inconsistencies kept me from enjoying it fully.

    The trumpet was awesome! Apparently everyone is an expert on symphonic music.

    I wouldn`t say I`m an expert on symphonic music, or any other music, but I do have a discerning ear. Chalk it up to years of choir classes.

    Excellent! I think there are many pop/rock pieces that could stand a symphonic treatment.

    I see strings. This is an orchestra. Symphonies have no strings.

    Auburnjunky: A symphony is an extended musical composition in Western classical music, scored almost always for orchestra.
    Orchestra. Symphony. Strings.
    The London Symphony Orchestra did a good rendition of this a while ago on an album called `Classic Rock`.

    nice, but I felt the tempo was a little slow, so it lacked the punch...
