If the past is any gauge, one can never really tell what songs are going to have staying power. But it’s worth a shot anyways!
So, without further ado, here are 15 predictions.
#15. Seems like a solid list to me.
“Interestingly, Slate just did a series called the New American Songbook that attempts to answer which of the songs of the last 25 years will be considered classics in years to come.
The ones on their short list from 2010 or later are:
Let It Go
Rolling in the Deep
We Found Love
Call Me Maybe
Seems like a solid list to me. I’d add “Somebody That I Used to Know,” but otherwise it’s tough to argue.”
“Adele – Rolling in the Deep & Someone Like You.”
#13. A long time.
“Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know
One hit wonder that will last a long time.”
#12. Uptown Funk.
“Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars.
Edit: Apparently it’s Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars. I stand corrected.”
#11. Timeless and super catchy.
“Tame Impala – Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
Such a timeless song and super catchy. Wouldn’t be suprised hearing that song still playing in 20 years.”
#10. People will be blasting it.
“M83 – Midnight City
People will be blasting that shit like Toto’s Africa.”
#9. The Kidzbop version.
“Party rock, but the kidzbop version.”
#8. It’s just a good song.
“Daft Punk – Get Lucky
Song was everywhere for a while, and it’s sufficiently unique and catchy to be remembered 17 years post release.
Also it’s just a good song.”
#7. Shaking a**es in 2050.
“Despacito will still be shaking asses in 2050, much less 2030.”
#6. So many thoughts.
“Rolling in the deep
Someone Like You
Sombody i used to know
All i want
Superhero/ Hall Of Fame
Demons / Radioactive
Take me to church
elastic heart/ chandelier
And some of Kendrick, Post Malone songs
You better add more song in reply..”
#5. At every party, forever.
“Wake me up – Avicii gonna be at every party, forever.”
“Surely some of Lady Gaga’s classics.
I’m not quite sure which though!”z
#3. Wedding music.
“Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon will be played at every wedding for the rest of eternity, and IMO that makes it a classic.”
#2. For decades.
“Portugal. the Man – Feel it Still will be on the radio for decades.”
#1. I believe.
“II believe Ed Sheeran’s Perfect and/or Thinking Out Loud will be played at weddings around the world for many, many years to come.
And perhaps Versace on the Floor will be the same for the honeymoon.”
At least we only have to wait 11 more years to see whether they’re correct!
