This is the absolute BEST musical marking I've ever seen in a score.
It was accompanied by this picture:
...which I stole from a vanilla friend's facebook page. It is a picture from the score of Jonathan Dove's opera 'Flight.'
The plot is similar to the movie "The Terminal" starring Tom Hanks. Feel free to research it if you like, but that's not really the point of this post.
Anyway, when I saw the marking "Grand and Orgasmic," I was not only amused, but as a musician and sexual being, I got to thinking how intimately related sex and music are for me. I dare say they are two of my passions that make up a large part of me. (The constant balance of vanilla and naughty in my life is not lost on me.)
All that said I started pondering the types of music Daniel and I have made love to. We are beings to whom music and sex are tremendously important. Both are kind of "our thing." Our musical tastes are as diverse as our sexual tastes and moods often dictate our preferences for each. We have made love to jazz as well as classical and I dare say we've fucked to eclectic rock and the digital stylings of Girl Talk. The connection for us is special. Part of what makes us francesanddaniel.
I once had a professor who told me she used to make love to the final trio of Strauss's Der Rosenkavalir with her ex husband. At the time, though in grad school, I was certain this was a case of TMI, but having discovered myself sexually since then, I have a new respect for her. Cause, yeah, that particular piece is both grand and orgasmic.
What kind of music (if any) do you folks like to do the mad monkey dance to? Does it effect your approach to sex or influence the type of moves you showcase? Feel free to share! Inquiring minds want to know. :-)
