The string arrangements in this mix vary in the way they contribute to the over-all sound and feel of the songs they are a part of. Some are light, non-obtrusive like the strings used in "Brick" by Ben Folds Five and the acoustic version of "Dumb" by Nirvana while some will bowl you over by their sheer majesty and power like those played in "Iris" by the Goo-Goo Dolls and Sting's "Russians".

This is not meant to be a definitive collection of rock-classical hybrids but only as a sampler of how strings can inject a sense of timelessness to modern compositions.
