Not sure if this is a classic as other generations have not heard of it

Undeniably a classic, but I prefer John Otway's audience based 'call and response' version...

"There is...."
'What ?'
"A house...."
'Where ?'
"In New Orleans...."
'What's it called ?'

etc etc :lol:

Does a Legend count as a classic? Hmm :-k Well the intro alone warrants an airing so here it is: :-D

When people talk about legends I always think of Eric Morecambe "They told me I'm a Leg end."

No list of classics in any shape or form can be complete without at least one track from the fab four. You could pick any one of a vast array of classics to post here but, although not my personal favourite, this track has probably found its way into more areas of life around the world than any other, and I particularly like this video which is more realistic than many: :-D

I had a run down to Teesside yesterday and had the music playing from a dongle that lives in the car.
All the tracks are familiar, I put them there myself, but a track can play for several minutes before I can name it or the artists.

One that I was listening to



It was almost finished before I could name it, and I listen to it often.
A few years ago I would have pegged it in the first few notes :(

A perfect example of a classic that everyone should know.
I'm not a fan of classical music but when stressing out driving in London I found it very calming. I bought the kids the Frozen album, it played all the songs and then did it again in classical mode, the kids were so relaxed when mummy come home she thought I drugged them up!
