I personally prefer Pachelbel's Canon
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

*Diemen runs for his life*

The only time I tolerate that piece is if I just can't fall asleep, because that's a guaranteed fall asleep song .

I wouldn't call it the worst piece in classical music, but let's just say it's nowhere on my top 100 list of favorite classical pieces.

The fact that I've had to suffer through performances of it by mediocre-at-best high school orchestras probably doesn't help it's value to me, either...

for me, the best composer ever is Mozart; just listen "Requiem in D Minor", its the best piece of music in the history of music!

I find that D minor is the saddest of all keys. It just makes people weap instantly.

Diemen, I don't think it's a terrible piece, it's just not an amazing one either--and it has become a huge cliche. You can't walk into a gift shop without hearing it playing with wave noises in the background. What do you think of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, for instance? I really like them but they too have become cliches.

Oh, and I was once in one of those mediocre-at-best high school strings/orchestra groups, scraping away on my violin. Actually, my teachers always thought I was good enough that they hassled me to take private lessons. But private piano lessons were plenty for me. I really never play the violin any more so sometimes I wish now I'd done more about it
