Bond


Four hot chicks playing classical music to a dance beat.  How can you go wrong with that?!  Let me answer that for you: You can't.

"Duel" (Live)

I have to say that this whole "electric classical" thing wouldn't really work if they were amateurs, but the four women are professionally trained classical musicians.

I don't really remember how or why I started listening to this band, but I did... and as a classical music fan, I will admit to loving this music.  There really is no reason why classical numbers shouldn't be transformed like this, and I only wish there were more bands like Bond.

"Victory"

Most of their songs are re-workings of classical pieces, a lot of which are very familiar to most people.  There are also a few oddities that the average listener wouldn't recognize, and then there's a few based on a bit more current music and some classic rock songs.

"Kashmir"

In all, it's not your typical music and kind of sticks out like a sore thumb in my music collection, which is probably why I honed in on them when I got to the "B" selection of my list.  It certainly makes for good late-night background music when I'm up fixing computers or whatnot.

"Allegretto"

If you enjoy classical music or stringed instruments or dance-pop by any means, you should definitely check out Bond.
