I'm pretty fond of elevator music. It gives me a lift.

Wagner's The Flight of the Valkyrie. This was the music in Apocalypse Now when the helicopter gunships attacked the Viet Cong village at dawn, flying in from the rising sun, so they would not be spotted. The helicopter gunships had the music blaring out of speakers. I guess the Vietnamese did not appreciate Wagner?
That scene was right before the scene where the commander (I forgot his name) told the ace surfer to either fight or surf.

What's your all time favorite music? Mine is Classical, Pop. What's your please share with me
For what occasion?
For running, Talking Heads, Gypsy Kings and Paul Simon.
For dinner with a friend, some jazz playing softly.
For rainy nights alone, dream-filled concertos on cellos.
For just being, single voices floating over Appalachian hill music.
All that could, and probably will, change with time.

Zubin Mehta's father called Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Sadko" the prettiest of all operas and it's at least on my top five list. Of the versions available on Amazon or other sources, the 1980 Bolshoi performance is special and you can view it on youtube in 12 parts, part 1:
Sadko is from what Russians call 'builini', or medieval fables and involves storytelling as it existed in ancient Russia, and the native instrument called 'gusli'. There is a role for a female storyteller, Nezhata, and Nina Grigorieva's performance of that role is beyond stunning, watch starting around five minutes and twenty seconds into this first part, she's telling the story of the Kievan hero Volxh Vsyeslavyevich whose father was the Tugarin dragon.
Like Richard Rogers, Rimsky-Korsakov was good at painting orchestral pictures of the sea and the opera begins with a picture of the sea and water, and then a feast in Novgorod in which revelers describe the wonders of Novgorod and then ask Nezhata to tell them some sort of an ancient story.
