Seriously though, does anyone actually REALLY like classic music?
Yep, although it's pretty daunting to get into. Fortunately there's a range which is pretty much a 'greatest hits' collection for each composer. So far I think Dvorak is my favourite.
It's not easy to know where to start with classical music. I suppose it could be as easy as choosing a composer or a period of classical music you like, look around that body of work, and take off from there.
That's what I basically did at first. I looked on youtube and just clicked on random videos. Amazon is good where you can sample 30 seconds of a song off a cd, so you can get some impression as to what the music is like.

I do find it hard to remember the names of pieces of music though.

And yeah, Civ IV does have great background music!
