YMMV / Gustav Holst

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Jupiter" and "Uranus" qualify for sheer force... especially "Jupiter."
    • "Mars", too (you might have heard a rendition during the end of the Battle of Yavin).
      • Not to mention 21 and 24's version.
      • Every time "Mars" is incorporated into the soundtrack for a war movie's battle sequence, take a shot. Star Wars, Fire Birds, Gladiator, and numerous others.
      • "Mars" was used as the soundtrack for the intro of Outpost, the videogame that preceded Outpost2. Awesome just begins to describe itnote .
      • The music in the launch sequence of John Glenn's Friendship 7 in The Right Stuff is Holst's "Mars" suite.
  • First Installment Wins: Of all the segments in The Planets, "Mars, the Bringer of War", the first one, is easily the most popular and well known.
  • Tear Jerker: If you're in the right mindset, "Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age" is a gut-wrencher.
