Are These Songs Going to Be Classics in 100 Years?

This is a tough call…who really knows what 100 years from now will look like.  Take a look at the list of songs below…do you think they will be Classics in 100 year?

Not all songs were created equal and not all songs can stand the test of time.  BuzzFeed opened a poll about some “modern day classics” to see what people think will stay a classic in 100 years.  Here are the highlights:

1.  “Smooth”,  Rob Thomas and Santana . . . About half voted NO, with the other half split on yes and “I’ve never heard it.”

2.  “Thong Song”,  Sisqo . . . Half the responses say no, while the other half are split on yes and “I’ve never heard it.”

3.  “Shake It Off”,  Taylor Swift . . . It’s closely split between yes and no.

4.  “All I Want for Christmas Is You”,  Mariah Carey . . . Almost everyone who voted said YES.

5.  “All Star”,  Smash Mouth . . . About two-thirds voted yes.

6.  “Hot in Herre”,  Nelly . . . It’s closely split, with a slight edge to YES.

7.  “Tubthumping”,  Chumbawamba . . . It’s going to be a NO from about half the voters, and the other half are split on yes and “I’ve never heard it.”

8.  “Shallow”,  Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper . . . It’s pretty close, but more people voted NO.

9.  “She Will Be Loved”,  Maroon 5 . . . A little more than half say no.
