"Ride of the Valkyries" by R. Wagner
What would kick off a bombed CD better than this iconic tune? We love the smell of napalm in the morning, stogie boys!
"Dies Irae" by G. Verdi
Who says opera is boring? This intense piece provides an excellent musical catharsis for your hectic day before you ease into your relaxing pipe experience.
"Ride of the Rohirrim" by H. Shore
Lord of the Rings fans may recognize this one. A nice Celtic feel, it channels the inner pipe smoker in everyone. Pretend for a while that you're enjoying a churchwarden instead.
"End of all Things" by H. Shore
Another Lord of the Rings favorite. A clear voice ends the musical catharsis.
"Pavane pour une Infante Defunte" by M. Ravel
Translated as 'Processional for a Dead Princess,' this calming song further relaxes the listener.
"Moonlight Sonata" by L. Beethoven
A classic piano piece of unparalleled serenity.
"Gymnopedie" by E. Satie
An exceedingly simple song to provide a soundtrack for deep thought.
"Ave Maria" as performed by A. Bocelli
An iconic piece sung by an iconic voice. Triumphant, to wake you from your introspective.
"Hungarian Rhapsody in C# Minor" by F. Liszt
Long, but don't give up on it. It ends with a cheerful jig to light your dottle to. Revitalizing, it is a wonderful tune to end your pipe with.
In all, the CD is just over 40 minutes. The perfect length for your pipe. Put it on, sit back, and let your inner philosopher take over!
"I think it is well also for the man in the street to realise that there is no power on earth that can protect him from being bombed. Whatever people may tell him, the bomber will always get through." ~ Sir Stanley Baldwin, before British Parliament, 10 November 1932
