'Four Dance Episodes - from Rodeo' by Aaron Copland. :D I love Copland's music. I first got into his music from listening to Prog Rock band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer who did their own versions of several of his pieces. The most famous probably being Fanfare For The Common Man.

Here's the Copland version. :D

ELP got me into Classical Music and I prefer Classical now to Prog Rock.

Wiki says:
The fanfare has found much use as a theme for television programs. In the United States, Emerson, Lake and Palmer's arrangement of Fanfare for the Common Man was the opening theme song for the CBS Sports Spectacular. In Mexico, it was the main title theme of TV Azteca TV sport program DeporTV. In Scotland, the BBC used it as the theme to their main news program Reporting Scotland in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Australian television network Seven Network used it in the 1980s and early 1990s as the theme music for Seven Sport broadcasts, and continues to use a teaser version to this day. An early 1980s Canadian television series called "Titans" used Fanfare as its opening theme

ANd these are just a FEW where it has been used. There is a history of the song written in 1946) and more references where it was played in movies here:

Ahh Tony... here's that phrase again... :D the common man

I've currently got my post-industrial, gloomily romantic, head on, with Einstürzende Neubauten - Stella Maris Listen Here. It also features Meret Becker, who has a lovely and hypnotic voice (You should hear her singing Brecht/Weill).
