Sorry to say it but most those songs won't even be remembered in ten years. I haven't even heard of a couple of them.

Bump. Add songs you think have stood the test of time. Some of mine relatively new (1996).


Would guys like me to add Celine Dion and Elton John into my list?

I've never heard of any of those songs on your list either, SuperGroove. Songs I think have "stood the test of time" are mostly from the 60's and 70's...pick just about any Beatles or Rolling Stones song...Led Zeppelin, etc, etc...that era.

I hate to say some of the songs because I don't like some of them .. but:

Eagles - Hotel California
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven
Soft Cell - Tainted Love
Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK
Beastie Boys - Fight for Your Right to Party
Pink Floyd - Brick in the Wall
Ramones - Rock N Roll High School

If you want to get into more obscure genres, there are a number of classics:

Misfits - 20 Eyes (if yer a punk rock fan, this is definitely considered a classic)
Godflesh - Streetcleaner
Danzig - Mother
Skinny Puppy - Killing Game
Ministry - Everyday is Halloween
Ministry - Just One Fix
Front 242 - Headhunter
NWA - Funk the Police (title edited for the tender eyes and minds of Anandtech)
Cure - Just like heaven
Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds
Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored
Opus III - It's A Fine Day
Alphaville - Forever Young
Nitzer Ebb - Godhead
Damned - Alone Again Or?
Lush - For Love
Enya - Orinoco Flow
S.P.O.C.K. - Never Trust A Klingon
When In Rome - The Promise
BiGod 20 - The Bog

I could go on, but that mightprove to be a bit annoying. :)

Anyhow, if you are going to mention Nirvana, I would have to say that "Smells like teen spirit" would probably be considered more timeless just because it was considered ground breaking at the time.

Supergroove, I like most of those songs on your list. You forgot my fav though

Smashing Pumpkins- Mayonaise

Sure its not played on the radio or anything, that doesn't mean it isn't still a great song. BTW, 1979 and Today are only 5 and 7 years old respectively. That's not really the test of time IMO.

Beethoven (in specific his 5th symphony)
Mozart
Bach
etc.

Beastie Boys- Fight for Your Right: it's funny because this song was made as a joke to insult the bands of the 80s who always did music like that. :)
Billy Joel- Piano Man (?)
Beatles- Come together
John Lennon- Imagine

Ummm...I'll think of some more later.
