Full name is "Secret Colony of the Flying Spiders"
This song has a story to it.....
It's a Saturday morning,
something from your ceiling fan above your bed descends upon your head
It's Itsy, from the Itsy Bitsy Spider cartoon series!
Itsy leads you downstairs, wanting to show you something outside.
You open your front door...
You suddenly realize this is really a dream.
You see spiders with wings flying everywhere, and they look beautiful!
You see Itsy crawling on by to a cave in the near distance.
You follow him inside
There are some guardian flying spiders near what appears to be a large stone door, but they don't seem in the mood to attack intruders.
You touch a touch-sensitive switch
The door opens...
There it is...
The absolutely elegant, ginormous queen flying spider
It strums its legs about its web, like...as if it was playing a harp
It approaches you from its web (can't figure out if I should say you're stuck on it yourself)
Greets you with chainsaw like teeth (instead of fangs)
It roars with an abnormal almost choral sound
It beckons you to get onto it
You obey its call
You look above and see a bright opening above the lair
The wings of the queen start to beat hard and fast
The giant queen flies up towards it
You get closer and closer!
You awake (if its night or day, its up to you)
You dismiss whatever happened, and just lay around, perhaps to go back to sleep.
Itsy chuckles and sleeps, too!
Fully classical, over 5 minutes, and has absolutely NO snare drums! How is that possible? Me dunno, but its going in my history books!

This song holds a new record in the number of tracks I used (over 30!) to make a song. The buzzing bass part when the wings of the queen flap, was I believe my most favorite part of making the song. That part had been in my mind since I first thought of the song. I added an effect or two to the Orchestra Deep Bass to give it that buzzy feel.
I wanted to add a panning automation to that track to give the feeling of large spiders flying by originally, but was never really sure where I'd put it, so story-wise, I had made just one use of it (the queen).
The organ solo was the biggest headache. Even after quantizing it just sounds whack. There were some other quantizing ishies here and there I'd love to have ironed out, but there's no time for that now!
This song won 1st Place for the NewGrounds Audio Contest of October 2011.
