    I know very very little about classical but Four Seasons is stunning and my favorite. I had others in my initial ~500. Would've been hilarious if we did a top 500 each so I could've been the one and only vote for the William Tell Overture.

    I have a bunch of choral pieces I absolutely love from back in my music major days. Kind of consider them in a different category than the stuff on this list (mostly because there's often not a definitive recording of that stuff) but fun to think about them anyway.

    These were all cuts from mine except I picked a different Colin Hay song. Also cut Butch Walker's Still Drunk.

    To nobody's surprise, I fuckin' love this list. So many amazing picks (Prince was a surprise) and ones likely to make my own 50.

    But I'm unfamiliar with these ones. Would you say all the albums in question are worth a look?
