Classics is a 1999 compilation album by American country music singer Patty Loveless.

The album includes two new tracks: "Can't Get Enough," which was a #21 Billboard Top Country Single, and "I Just Wanna Be Loved by You." Also included is a duet with Vince Gill, "My Kind of Woman, My Kind of Man," a #27 hit, which first appeared on Gill's 1998 album The Key. The rest of the album features her Epic Records hits: three songs from Only What I Feel, three songs from When Fallen Angels Fly, two songs from The Trouble with the Truth, and one from Long Stretch of Lonesome, the George Jones-backed "You Don't Seem to Miss Me." The album went on to be certified Gold for shipments of over 500,000 copies in the US and was Loveless' last album to receive a certification.
