  • measurement? We don't need no stinkin measurement
For me, it's Beethoven's 7th, and Dvorak's New World Sym.  Sometimes Chopin's Etude Op.10 #3

And here's the way it should be played!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yjnLmv1hHU

Depends on what I've been listening to lately.  Right now it's the finale to Finzi's cello concerto.

Usually something by Bach or Brahms.  Or one of the Beethoven piano sonatas.

A long lasting classical ear worm for me was the theme from Schubert's Opus 100 Piano Trio in e-flat - the music that was playing when Ryan Oneal's Redmond Barry character met Marisa Berenson's Lady Lyndon outside the ballroom in the blue moonlight.

Great topic! Thanks S Clark!  I look forward to hearing other people's catchy melodies.

Gustav Holst - Second Suite for Military Band, 1st and 4th movements.
Leopold Mozart - Sinfonia in B Flat Major, 2nd movement, Adagio
Jaromir Weinberger - Schwanda the Bagpiper
