I would hope The Troubles would be one of these. Either version.

I guess I'm old, but I have never heard of two of these songs, so I don't need to wait 35 years.   ???

Beautiful Day has absoultely no chance IMO.

Here is 10 that will for my money easily be seen as 'classics ' by a wider audience than Beautiful Day - not saying I like them necessarily but I believe they will be.

Crazy in Love - Beyonce
Someone Like You - Adele
Sex on Fire - Kings of Leon
Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
Can't get you out of my head - Kylie Minogue
Umbrella - Rihanna
Stan - Eminem
I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas
Poker Face - Lady Gaga
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

Rolling in the Deep

Bad Romance

I would add to my list.

(You are in the modern day Motown pop vein. Rock genre Beautiful Day is there in my book)

Adding to this, I feel like "Hello" by Adele will also be remembered as a classic; same thing with "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga. Both huge songs that were inescapable and are still played frequently. "Halo" by Beyonce might be another. "Hey Ya" by Outkast and "Gold Digger" by Kanye West would be two more. "We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey was arguably one of the most successful songs of the entire decade, so that'll probably be remembered.

As much as I love U2, I can't see any of their post-00s stuff being remembered as a classic. However their pre-00s stuff will always be highly thought of; even 100 years from now I could see someone listening to ISHFWILF or WTSHNN or One.

Beautiful Day - well it's already 16 years old and going strong. Rarely leaves the top 5 streamed U2 songs. It is a classic.

Agree with various Kylie, Gaga, Beyonce suggestions. Some others:

When The Stars Go Blue - Ryan Adams. Stunning song that got covered by many artists when still a young song.
No One Knows - QOTSA
She Wants To Move - NERD
Last Nite - Strokes
Rehab - Amy
Lazarus - Bowie
There There - Radiohead
Fallin' - Alicia Keys
Empire State Of The Mind - Both versions?
The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
Get Lucky - Daft Punk
Happy - Pharrell
We Come 1 - Faithless
Hurt - Johnny Cash (which has long eclipsed the original)

Surely they don't have to receive lots of radio play to be regarded as classics of their genres?

I accept I might be pushing my luck with There There because that's a big personal favourite. Only Creep seems to get wide appeal for reasons I don't understand. Lazarus will be very highly regarded I think, albeit with added emotional attachment due to the sad timing of that week it was unveiled.

i took this thread to mean songs that still remain relevant in 2035. i'd think that would have to mean being exposed to the songs via the radio, or i guess commercials etc

I really dont think many, if any "pop" songs released this millenium will be rated as classics in 35 yrs from now
