We could but then we'd be stuck with him... No thank you :P

Ok, that's pretty reasonable ...

He makes music for people who don't like music.

That's okay, we like to pretend he isn't Dutch. He's from the southern most part of the Netherlands anyways, what they speak there barely passes for Dutch anyways ;D

Sounds like he's almost... ehm... French! :D

So, I come here to read about The Third Man and half the topic is hijacked by philistines who not only know of but actually LIKE Andre Rieu? What the hell.

Rieu is great, though I figure that stuffy purists wouldn't like him  ^-^

He isn't great, he destroys everything he touches. Including OUATITW. I don't think he's a bad guy and we can credit him for getting people who don't like "old music" to open to classical music. He isn't the worst perfomer though, it's more about everything around the "basic" (technically not good, not bad, but FAR TOO MUCH SYRUPY VIOLIN) performance: hair, costumes, lights, set design...

He's so ridiculous that in France you only need to mention his name for everybody in the room to laugh.

By the way, all the examples of "good Rieu" (which are all worst than the regular versions of these songs, ie the versions without Rieu) you guys posted are instances of somebody else being the star of the piece of music, and Rieu being in the background (which is a dream come true: put that guy away from the front row).

The Third Man played recently on Noir Alley. Eddie Muller thinks it's one of the greatest movies ever. I think it's one of the most overrated movies ever. Not bad, but not nearly as great as people make it out to be.

So am I, but it's been a long time since I've last seen it. But it wouldn't crack my top 40 classic noirs.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..
