When done the way I like it: Air on the G String- J.S. Bach, although this song makes me feel intense feelings of pleasure happiness and enjoyment.

Not much else really.

The whole of Quadrophenia. The music is excellent - ranging from pulse-pounding rock brimming with youthful confidence to lovely melodies and ballads to songs that have a lot of both. I always could really relate to it - I didn't really get myself or understand who I was either. I was going through all the same stuff Jimmy (the main character) was going through. I consider it to be the definitive "teen angst" album (and I mean that in a good way).

Also, "The Ecstasy of Gold" from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Blondie and Tuco have just left a huge Civil War battlefield, and now Tuco is looking for $100,000 in a cemetery where all the dead soldiers have been buried. Just watch.

1. Never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected.
2. Take it outside.
3. Be nice.

And always remember: pain don't hurt.
