I like Rackozy.  It has more of that cool Hungarian feel.

I say mephisto, there's just something about it. It's probably that main tune, so vibrant yet putrid. It kinda makes me think of a guy in a nice suit sitting on a horse with sh*t-eating grin on his face along with some sh*t as well.

Some people seem to like fighting on here or should I say "attacking" - sad really.

not attacking, but stating one's opinion in a forceful manner.

The Horowitz/Liszt Rakoczky is the best.  Some of the craziest piano playing I've heard.

Pffsh the Berlioz Rakoczy for orchestra, musically, is 10x better. :)
