Classic typefaces?

Trying to nail down a list of solid typefaces I should acquire.

What typefaces do you think are classic and ones that no designer should be without?

    I prefer modern looking fonts to give you a classic look. I don't find that keeping a list of classic fonts in my pocket helps me. I am always on the look out for something new and modern.

    I say look for fonts that are work-horse fonts. The kind that you can use over and over with added value without causing a lot of distraction.

    I love tall fonts like Garage, Alternate and League because they fit a specific need. Gotham, Proxima and Futura are also great for their simplicity but the can be overused. Tisa and Adelle are very readable serifs that can have a modern look and conservative feel.
