I've done the pilgrimage to Bonn where Beethoven was born. That was 20 years ago, but I recall it was painfully quaint.

But, at the end of the day, I'll take Mozart over him any day of the week. A day without Mozart is like a day without sunshine.

There is no way anyone is going to be happy with someone's greatest whatever in all history list...

Having said that, I'd add the premiere of The Rite of Spring

WTF is with all the music lists lately?

Face facts. Your favorite __________ sucks balls and should be burned, buried and promptly forgotten.

Also, let's not forget to add that one album that sold like seven copies, but the producer was Jann Wenner's coke dealer, so it got a kick-ass review in Rolling Stone.

John Belushi imitating Joe Cocker on SNL would have to rank right up there.

No they aren't, but like I said with the Cult Film list the other day, this is a pretty good list. I'm happy with it. Although I'm not sure why Gangnam Style got "Honorable Mention". This is a pretty good attempt at a list like this.

No, Belushi, onstage next to Cocker imitating Joe Cocker is the one. Belushi doing it alone is pretty goddamn great, but standing next to the guy he's spoofing, while the guy he's spoofing plays along, and doing that good of an impression is the part that was truly magical.

But every day with Beethoven is an idyllic walk in the woods, stopped short by a harrowing thunder and lightning rain storm, only to have the sky break open to a nice sunny afternoon, about 24 minutes after the storm.

Tanya Tucker appearing in a skin tight outfit on Dick Clark's Rockin New Years Eve 1979 is my personal greatest moment in music history.

I despise Jimmy Fallon, especially after helping D2S kill democracy, but his Van Morrison skit is still funny.

They should have used the scene from Immortal Beloved for the Beethoven moment. It should have been higher up the list. That scene is awesome in the movie, and it must have been transcendent in person.

Of course you could never actually make a perfect list, but this is surprisingly good.

Nope. Nope. Nope.

First, Beethoven's most groundbreaking work and best symphony is the 3rd. It's premier was one of those events that changed music history.

Other major moments in music history:

Claudio Monteverdi's L'Orfeo (1607). Arguably the first opera. Nothing like it had been heard before.

Der Ring des Nibelungen (first part, Das Rheingold, premiered in 1869). Also nothing like it had been heard before. Completely changed the course of music history.

Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps (1913). It literally caused a riot. Without a doubt the most important work of the 20th century and the most famous music premier in recorded history.

Quatuor pour la fin du temps (1941). Messiaen wrote it while a prisoner in a Nazi prison camp. Premier was outdoors, in the rain, with 400 prisoners and guards in attendance.

Various premiers of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 (1942). Written in Leningrad during the Nazi siege. Russians threw together a premier while Nazis were invading. The score was put on microfilm, flown to the West. The US premier was broadcast nationwide.

Beethoven and a bunch of moments from contemporary rock/pop? One of these is definitely not like the other nine.
