Ear Candy: Classical Edition

Gustav Holst, The Planets, Mars

This is my favorite piece from Holst's The Planets. It inevitably is compared to The Imperial March from Star Wars, but it was written first and is decidedly better (not to knock John Williams at all; I love his work).

Please to enjoy my ruling planet, Mars.


  1. Very nice.
    I wish that there were a greater appreciation for classical music and especially for some of the more contemporary composers, such as Holst.
    Keep spreading the word... and thanks.


Spit it, betch!
