* The most popular among the lay public, the "Music/RideOfTheValkyries", tends rather to be looked down upon by Wagnerians and anti-Wagnerians alike ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Blom Eric Blom]] once called it "the most tasteless piece of music ever written"). Among the many, many, ''many'' pieces favored by the former (the latter, of course, would favor no Wagner at all) are „''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzCVLN7g1t4 Ein Schwert verhieß mir der Vater]]''" and „''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8CYkkgFzG4 Winterstürme]]''" from ''Walküre'', and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTgjQFSLEno Siegfried's Rhine Journey]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhsCeO2YtSM Siegfried's Funeral March]]" from ''Götterdämmerung''.
** Actually, many Wagnerians like "Music/RideOfTheValkyries" just fine.
** Let's just put the entire ''Ring Cycle'' here. All 14 or so hours of it.
* Fricka (assuming you root for her at all) has a Crowning Moment of Awesome in ''Die Walküre'' when Wotan says "Was verlangst du?", indicating that she has won.
