Classical Music Playlist {On Spotify}

I'm guessing the title of today's playlist will either turn you off immediately, (which I totally hope it won't, and you'll give it a chance) appeal to you because you really do love classical music, or you'll think I'm crazy enough that you actually might give it a try.

Classical Music Playlist from Blissful Roots

Maybe I'm wrong in thinking many of you don't really love classical music.  I am not an expert by any means, but I have definitely grown to respect, enjoy, and really appreciate the beauty of this incredible music.

It all started in my college humanities class.  I loved our unit on classical music.  I'd heard plenty of classical music before then, but for some reason it never really resonated with me until college.  And then I had a good friend send me a big collection of classical CDs (he'd remembered me loving my humanities class) while he in Germany for, I believe, my birthday.  Those CDs really got me hooked.  I have to admit I didn't love listening to every song on every CD, but there were plenty of songs I adored.

Do you know what else classical music reminds me of?  The parade of homes my husband used to attend every year (before our boys were born).  I think every home we toured had the same classical music playlist playing throughout the entire house.  There definitely is an air of beauty and dignity that comes with classical music.  I know whenever I've played it in my little, not-exactly-parade-of-homes home I can't help but feel we're a bit smarter and more sophisticated than we might really be! 
But, enough with the jokes.  I really hope you'll give the list a try.  Whenever I need a bit of calm, this is one of the very first playlists I turn to.  I love the immediate tranquil feeling I get as it begins to play.  And, I'm sure you're familiar with many of the songs already, you just might not know it.  You'll probably recognize many of them from movies or TV.  Like Cannon in D (one of my favorites!) is the song that Annie walks down the isle to in Father of the Bride.  And for those of your who are old enough, you'll always remember Beethoven's Fur Elise from the McDonald's piano recital commercial.  Do you remember that one?  Thank goodness for YouTube!  Click on the link for a good walk down memory lane.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.

    1. So, so glad to hear it, Crystelle!  I get so much done when I have it on as well.  I get a bit distracted with working to anything that has lyrics, so the instrumental is perfect!
