    Correction: Piece. They aren't referred to as songs. Rather, Classical pieces. I love Brahms Symphony no.4 Allegro non Troppo. Majestic, soothing and calm :D

    Beethoven's Moonlight Piano Sonata is not a song. In classical music you call a composition by what it is e.g., sonata, symphony, concerto, quartet, allemande, ballade, etc., etc.

    Moonlight Sonata isn't a “song” - songs are sung and it's an instrumental!

    So far as relaxing (or at least beautiful) pieces of classical music go I'd suggest:

    Clare de Lune by Debussy

    The Girl With the Flaxen Hair by Debussy

    Gynopedie Number 1 by Satie

    Pavane Poor Infante Defunte by Ravel

    "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis" by Vaughn Williams.

    "Pruitt-Igoe" by Phillip Glass.

    "Winter" by Antonio Vivaldi.

    "Symphony No. 7" by Beethoven
