    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.
