Turn classical stuff into rock

Well he is playing Celebration a lot at soundchecks. That is from Liverpool Oratorie?? Could he do that to other numbers?

Yes - I've thought about that -

he has a couple good lyrical/musical themes in some of his Oratorio and classical work (also note - part of the Standing Stone melody is from "Waterspout")

Namely -

"School" always seemed to me to be a great proto-punk-BTTE type number with the chorus
Not for yourself but for the world were you born
and you were born in Liverpool
We're here in school today to get a perfect education,
Yes, we're going up.
We're keen to learn the rules and laws that civilization taught us
Yes, we're growing up.

Not for ourselves,
but for the whole world were we born.
And we were born in Liverpool.

Our teachers say that ignorance will always drag us down,
It's like a nagging cough.
But I can say that looking back,
The most important thing I found was sagging off!

Not for the whole world.
But for yourself were you born.
And you were...

Middle 8:
Being born where you were born
Carries with it certain responsibilities.

But for the whole world were we born.
And we were born in Liverpool.
Everyone's talkin' 'bout the President
We all chip in for a bag of cement

I seem to remember that tune, Celebration, originally appeared in Paul's Rupert The bear album. The track is called Cohen The wind is blowing. Maybe I'm wrong, I have to look for my Rupert CD and listen to it again.

It's officially Celebration from Standing Stone.
