Bolero is like the best song ever. A bolero is a dance in triple (in case you didn`t know) and the bolero is celebrated and popularized in Maurice Ravell`s song. Any one ever here this lovely song?

have you ever heard of the music group The Planets? they`re an instrumental groub, and play classical-crossover music similar to bond. they have a cellist, a violinist, a flute player, 1 or 2 guitarists, a double bass/bass guitar player, a percussionist, and a cor anglais/oboe player.
anyways, they do a variation of bolero and it`s very cool! i like it.

I`ve heard Bolero a few times, and one reason why I really like it is because it uses saxophones. It`s a great song! (ahem, symphony. survey of music lit. is following me everywhere!)

I love the colours of Bolero.
Esp. the two pianos version!

at the risk of starting an unnecessary debate, how can you like the colors of the 2 piano version better than the orchestral version. the piano is a wonderful instrument, but the genius of bolero lies in the fact that it is, in ravel`s own words, "orchestral tissue without music".
