Classical music can be a great source of inspiration for songwriters of all styles as, most of the time, even the most famous classical works are in the public domain, and therefore, free for us to use however we please! Countless pop and rock songs have been based on classical pieces, with some of the most influential pieces spawning multiple songs!
