Some years ago I gave a CD called Cleaning to the Classics to my younger sister. She loved it, and I've been intending ever since to get one for myself. Yesterday I finally ordered one at Amazon.com and I'm so looking forward to its arrival.
Take a look at the playlist and you'll see that this music really does have the potential to light a fire under the reluctant house-cleaner:
- Khatchaturian - Sabre Dance (02:29)
- Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries (05:33)
- Mussogorsky - Night On Bald Mountain (11:11)
- Verdi - Triumphal March (11:45)
- Ipolitov-Ivanov - Caucasion Sketches (03:47)
- Verdi - Anvil Chorus (02:58)
- Berlioz - Damnation of Faust (04:13)
- Strauss - Thunder and Lightening Fast Polkas (03:16)
- Beethoven - The Storm from Symphony 6 (03:18)
- Rimsky-Korsakov - Cortege (04:46)
- Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture (03:36)
The punchline comes with the very first track. You put on the CD, grab your duster -- and Khatchaturian just makes you want to go into action!
