Are These Songs Going to Be Classics in 100 Years?

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.”
