    Given that Classic FM regularly release their own 'in-house' CD compilations with such titles as 'Smooth Classics', 'Romantic Classics', 'Relaxing Classics' etc. etc., my girlfriend Frenchie hit upon this wonderful idea of the very antithesis of such 'cheesy' compilations and suggested that they should introduce collections such as 'Paranoia Classics' ('The Surprise Symphony', 4 minutes 33 seconds'), 'Frantic and Frenzied Classics' (Flight of the Bumblebee and the William Tell Overture), Absolutely Alzheimers ('50 classic tracks you'll never remember for the rest of your life'), Nervous and Jumpy classics (The end of 1812 Overture with cannon and mortar effects, with the volume turned up to full; Derek Bourgeois' Blitz...)

    So, with those categories (perhaps tMP-ers could suggest a few more?), what sort of tracks would you include in such compilations?
