Really really hard to say for me.

I'll go with Badinerie though. It was the first classical piece of music I really liked some 10 years ago and amazingly I haven't grown tired of it. So I'll go with it because of its endurance with me.

gymnopedie 1 (reinbert de leeuw) clair de lune

Classical music? None that I could think of. I'm not the cultured kind. I do like the opening song to the Kostner movie, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Pretty much anything by Beethoven.

 

Pachelbel - Canon in D minor

 

Gymnopaedie

Embodied Deception. Am I doing it right?

I grew up with a lot of classic songs (especially from Courage The Cowardly Dog :D), so I can't narrow it down at all.

I love me some Beethoven, Mozart, and all the other ones that you may hear wherever you may go lol.

You mean classical, not "classic."

Anyway, this is my favorite.

"Which is your favorite musical composition from the classical era" instead of " what's your favorite classic song?"

Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture is decent. Hard to come up with a favorite.

Not so much a "song" as it is an "experience" for me, Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 by Ludwig van Beethoven.

inb4 4'33Lonelynight

I was going to say that in your thread, but decided not to recylcle a joke that has probably been said ad nauseam on every youtube video of 4'33 in existence. It's still better than Bieber and a better love story than Twilight.

I wouldn't even say it's his best set of variations for piano (the Diabelli and Eroica variations are better), but it's like Beethoven took a theme straight out of Legend of Zelda and wrote 32 variations on it.
