    ^ Didn't Shepherd Clark use it at some point? It's been used a lot, but I like the music anyway.

    The following news item reminded me of this thread:

    Concert for good sleep held in Kyoto

    In Kyoto, western Japan, an unusual concert was held on Tuesday to help people get to sleep by listening to relaxing music.

    The Japanese Society of Sleep Research organized the event at a concert hall to raise public interest in sleep.

    Twenty-four people in the audience were connected to an electroencephalograph, or EEG machine.

    Twenty classical pieces were played, including the aria "None Shall Sleep" from Puccini's opera "Turandot".

    Whenever 10 percent of the subjects fell asleep, a sheep icon appeared on a screen in the hall.

    The 8th sheep appeared between the 5th piece and the 6th, indicating that 80 percent of the test-takers were asleep.

    The research group says that people who have sleeping disorders can use the machine to take readings of their brain waves to help doctors diagnose their medical problems.

    This tends to make me believe Nessun Dorma should not be used unless you want the audience to score 8 sheep.

    Tosca and Turandot, no to mention Requiem For A Dream/Tower/whatever version!
    as for R&J - I'd rather ban Rota than Tchaikovsky or Prokofiev...

    plus I'd ban any piece of music in Edvin Marton's version. can't stand his screechy violins...
