P.S. the opening sound on the Wolf's Rain soundtrack is horrible and bears no resemblance to the rest of the CD for no reason that I can understand.

i think bolero and in paradisum are very "important" music, so you have to be a very good juggler to keep up with those wonderful sounds....
i love pink floyd, and i also liked wolf's rain sountrack (even if i think it's not so good for juggling, 'cause it takes a music with a constant rythm, so you can follow it with your movements..)

there are some tracks in Wolf's Rain that are more appropriate than others. Personally, I like the songs that have moments of constant rhythm interspersed with rhythmic changes. I find it lends itself to a routine that flows and dances like fireflies on an evening breeze.

I like the one in Portuguese. Real pretty song. Coracao Selvagem I think. Anyways...

A lot of gorillaz songs are good. The song Twiggy vs. James Bond by Pizzicato five...

Bela Lugosi's Dead by Bauhaus is good but it is close to ten mins long.

The "Thanks for the Ether" album from Rasputina has a couple good tracks as well.

Faure's requiem! would never have thought of that. How about dies irae from mozarts requiem? Now there's a dramatic piece (both for music and for cj). awaiting someone making a video on that. hehe

i liked pavement a lot! (a little less animal connection, i think rhythm is very important for CJ, they are good players but rhythm is too "strange")
and i agree with royal: gorillaz are perfect !

but i think mozart 's requiems are "too much", maybe they can distract the people watching you, and make'em feel a little too sad and anxious...

Pretty much anything by Acid Mothers Temple.

You should be listening to this band even when not contact juggling anyhow.
