42. Well, yeah, not to mention all that awful "Christian Rock."

Then again, there's all that amazing Gospel Music.

Like most everything, there's some good, lots of bad, some amazing (Mozart's Requiem, most everything by Bach) some hideously awful (Jesus Christ Superstar) and lots and lots of shit too dull even to be remembered.

Gluck's Orpheus is pretty amazing. The other day I saw Cocteau's "Orpheus" which used a lot of Gluck as sound track.

Wasn't Orpheus something like a god? Mythological anyway. And without the gods to mock, Aristophanes would have been right out of a job. But then again, we wouldn't have had all those cheesy Italian Hercules movies.

Just gotta take the bad with the good, I suppose.
