Certain songs are interesting to play because they are unforgiving - e.g. a Bach invention, or H In New England.

Any given bar is "easy" - but even if you only have a 1% chance of biffing a bar, that is liable to happen at some point in the performance. In jazz, romantic/impressionistic, or atonal(ish) music, it's often easy to play through the mistake and most audience members won't notice. But, when it happens in music that just sits there clearly, you can't hide it, and it can throw you off.
