Ok, for our classical music lovers, how about favourite violin concerto.  Now you can only pick one. If you have difficulty, you can also pick your runner up.

Favorite:  Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D major  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdYGmPH9fcs
Runner up (very close, btw):  Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n25tt_KgctA
