WRONG WRONG WRONG!
Why in the hell do the planners for 4th of July concerts insist on this piece?
*Uhhh, dude it’s got 'splosions, so it’s like perfect for us.
I’m watching the fireworks show from WASHINGTON DC and they play THIS!
Why don’t we just play that song from Apocolypse Now. Dunt da-da Daaa Dunt Dunt da-da Daaa Dunt. Or maybe Russian Sailor Dance. Hell, if you don’t know what to play, just play some John Williams movie themes.
Yes the USofA was involved in a little tiff in 1812 but the 1812 Overture is NOT about that. It’s about the Russians turning back Napoleon. What I want to know is wether they singing God Save the Tsar or was the chorus singing the commie substition?
