Eminem is one of the best-selling artists in music history, easily the biggest crossover success ever seen in rap. To call him hip-hop's Elvis is correct to a degree, but it's largely inaccurate.

Eminem was that good. I just thought, "Fuck, this man is amazing. He tells stories in such a powerful and distinctive way. As a lyricist, he's one of the best ever.
Eminem does for his audience what [Bob] Dylan did for his: He writes how he feels. His anger, vulnerability and humor come out. Concerning the controversy surrounding Eminem due to his transgressive music, American entertainer Madonna had said, "I like the fact that Eminem is brash and angry and politically incorrect [ He's reflecting what's going on in society right now.

Especially if you know what they're about.
The "Dies Irae," a part of the Requiem mass taken from a 13th-century hymn. It describes the Last Judgment. Berlioz did manage to change the way the tune was used, however, when he quoted it in his aforementioned symphony, and it's been parodied ever since as in the Saint-Saens piece described above.

Imaginary Landscape No. If anything, the video accompaniment here makes it even worse. George Crumb: "Black Angels". It will make you feel like insects are crawling up your skin.

The music accompanying the cat trying to catch the little bird has a literal Jump Scare moment when the cat misses him. The threatening horns when the wolf leaves the forest. The music when the cat notices the wolf and quickly climbs the tree. Scary enough, but then the wolf chases the duck and devours the poor creature, all accompanied by nervous music that makes little children's imagination go berserk.
The spooky flute representing the bird and the equally haunting bassoon representing the granddad slowly walking towards Peter. Maurice Ravel 's La valse lends itself to this trope with its disjointed melodies, jarring dissonances, and wild swings in mood and tempo.

Still, the final lines - "Darling, I hope that my dream never haunted you My heart is telling you how much I wanted you" - leave many disturbingly unanswered questions. Dmitri Shostakovich : "String Quartet, No. For real nightmare trips, plays his last two string quartets - especially No.
Symphony No. But it kicks into full Nightmare gear in the second half, starting with the agitated strings and percussion. That builds up until it gives way to a relentless percussion cadence, which in turns alternates with violent Funny Funny - Sticky Fingers (5) - Fight For Fun (Vinyl from the rest of the orchestra.
The music gives the impression of an unfeeling, unstoppable juggernaut destroying everything in its path. Back in audiences weren't used to such threatening sounding introduction to a ballet. Of course, "The Rite Of Spring" has no happy subject to begin with: a ritual sacrifice of a young virgin in prehistoric Russia!
The entire piece sounds brutal, primitive, loud and has a scary feeling to it. Especially first time listeners will almost certainly be unnerved. No wonder that a riot broke loose during its premiere in ! The second act "Introduction" and "Mysterious Circles Of The Young Girls" sounds even more threatening, because it remains so hauntingly calm and quiet for quite some minutes.
After the earth shattering noise of the first act this comes across as being silence before the storm.
