TTT: Ten Favorite Classical/Instrumental Songs

Top Ten {Tuesday}

I don't know if I've mentioned this before or not but I love classical and instrumental music. Well, I love most any type of music but those are my absolute favoritse. I love how they can convey so many different emotions without words - the music alone can make you feel so many different things. And there's so many different types of songs - some are more contemporary while others were written a very long time ago, some were themes in movies or on television shows, others you may have heard in passing but never realized what it was. So for today's Top Ten Tuesday, I'm talking about my Ten Favorite Classical/Instrumental Songs. This post is very video heavy so I put it all behind a jump break!

1. Passacaglia - Bear McCreary

2. Chopin - Prelude in E minor, Op. 28 No. 4

3. Holst - The Planets: Mars, the Bringer of War

4. Holst - The Planets: Venus, the Bringer of Peace

5. Beethoven - 5th Symphony

6. Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata

7. Chopin - Nocturne 20 in C sharp minor

8. Tchaikovsky: Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48

9. Danny Elfman - Spiderman theme

10. John Williams - Duel of the Fates (although this one does have some vocals in it)
