Of the ones listed, I must also say the Magnetic Rag is my favourite. I particularly love the slow part before the ending section in Bb minor (I think...)--very haunting! I love most of Joplin's other rags, though, particularly: The Cascades, The Chrysanthemum, Elite Syncopations, Search Light Rag, Nothin' Doin' (or is it Somethin' Doin'? I can never remember), Easy Winners, A Breeze From Alabama, and Pineapple Rag. I also adore "Original Rags" which isn't actually by Joplin, but which appears in one of my Joplin books--Joplin chose some excerpts of other popular rags and another man arranged them into a very effective piece, which I played as a sort of finale at the last concert for my teacher before she left for Taiwan. Everyone loved it.
