Thanks, Bob, for sending this link to "Sing, sing, sing", an old Benny Goodman classic. And isn't the definition of classic something to do with ongoing appreciation and appeal?
- a classic of rock be the Stones performing "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday"? Or is that just etched in my mind because of too many rum and cokes and a snowy rooftop escape from a Kingston student house?
- a classic of painting be a Rembrandt ? (though my vote would lean toward Caravaggio)
- a classic of dance - ??
- a classic car - well, my husband might pick a 50 or 60 something Chevy (though who wouldn't enjoy a Silver Cloud?)
- a classic novel - ??
