Why is 4/4 The most common time signature?
It looks like a C, and stands for 4/4, which happens to be the most common time signature, so people often explain it as "C stands for common time". They considered 3 a perfect number (because it represented the idea of the Trinity), and a circle was a perfect shape - so a circle indicated a triple meter.
