I may be a rock fanatic, but it is the truth. Classical music, can be just the most beautiful and deep music.

Now mind you, I only like certain types of classical. There's allot that I don't care for, but some of it just gives me ear orgasms,

Anyways, for anyone here who likes classical music could you give me recommendations, for someone who likes, deep, relaxing, and dark?

I don't listen to classical music that much. Although occasionally I listen to world music which is easy to fall asleep to (which is really relaxing).

So you want something that is more chordal and in a minor key (most likely)?

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
Beethoven's 5th Symphony (I don't know about relaxing here...)
Basically anything by Chopin :P (he wrote mostly darker music but, there are a few lighter pieces)

What exactly is world music? I think I might know but I'm not sure.

Eh, it is basic I guess, nearly all instrumental, I would search youtube if you needed an example.

Would this be called world?

I think this is a better example. This music plays with the soul (lol).

Yes, anything between medieval and classical music is intensely relaxing. Sometimes I wish to grab a history book about a random person's life in old times, have a cup of tea, and have this kind of music running in the background. Very healthy thing, too.
