Song of the Day: In The Hall Of The Mountain King

Today’s song is In The Hall Of The Mountain King by Edvard Grieg.

Classical music.
It’s Norwegian, so you know it’s good.

Equal parts exciting an ominous.

Ba ba ba ba ba ba bum. Ba ba bum. Ba ba bum.

The song is about trolls. So easy to imagine a scenario with this theme.

It is an excellent composition. A beautiful blend of sound and tension.
It’s quick too, so you can loop it much faster than standard songs.
