Classic swing


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?
So, would
- 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 - ??
