LONG TEXT WARNING: this is a personal story having to do with this song.

On a high school band trip to Nashville, it was a few weeks since my crush rejected me. She played the bassoon, and I the clarinet, so she was there too. After we were done performing all day, we went and saw the Nashville Symphony play Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet. She ended up getting seated right in front of me, so I had to watch her get pretty comfortable, shall we say, with the alto sax player seated to her right. They spent the rest of the trip together, in each other's arms after that.

The first song the symphony played was this tune. As I watched her in my now ex-friend's arms, right in front of me.

You can bet I was feeling it. The rage flowed through me as the symphony roared. The combination of the music, and that deep, primal, rage like I'd never felt before - it was so solid, so unyielding in its presence, I felt like I could've sculpted my rage into a sword and hacked them both to death on the spot. It was somehow the worst, yet one of the most awesome feelings I've ever had. I felt pure power course through my veins. If I had not been in public, I would've gone to the nearest solid metal object and dented the crap out of it. I would've gone outside and lifted a car over my head. You cannot imagine the invincibility, yet crippling sadness this experience brought at the same time.

I get a flashback to that day and feel a tinge of that broken, dark energy every time I hear this. The power of music, eh?

For sure...I just remembered from kindergarten in 1970ies which included a lot of theater and classical music, but gave up. Then 2 months later I woke up in the middle of the night, shouting "Prokofiev!". And there it was, luckily :-) And listened to this version plenty times since last 10 years.
I don't have the same newer references as some mentions like The Simpsons, GTA and so on, was during a deeper depression it came to my mind right from childhood.
