Chopin's Prelude No 4 in E MINOR is the piece of music used in Rob D - Clubbed to death Part 2 - THIS IS FOR DEFINATE - Not Part 1 which is the one used on the matrix - Part 2 is a phenomenal piece of music, better than 1 if you ask me. I've only ever heard it used on the 1995 Cream Live 2 James Lavelle mix, which is probably the best mix of its kind ever made.
