What songs from the last 5-10 years will still be popular in over 30 years?

Modern day classics if you will.

Music that will outlive generations and still be heard. Presley and The Beatles if you will.


Has to be on the Billboard in the last decade.

Few certainties, mostly because new songs and "sounds" are decreasingly innovative, so the inevitable trend is fewer songs of permanent value. Fewer songs will stick out for more than the six months or a year they're in mainstream rotation. More disposable music will come and go in very short time periods, but the least disposable of the people making the disposable music will still be around in some form: Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Eminem, Arcade Fire, etc. Their best songs will probably still be getting airplay twenty years from now, and not because those songs are actually great or anything. I bet "Paper Planes" is around a while too. It might be the "Bittersweet Symphony" of the 00's.

"Friday" by Rebecca Black. Staying power, it has it.

on top of my head:

"learn to fly" - foo fighters
"lose yourself" - eminem
"single ladies" - beyonce
