Title says it all kink.gif What recent songs do you (or your peers) consider to be songs that will never be forgotten? Good or bad tongue.gif Like how when you think of 80’s music you think of Wham, or 90’s you think Britney (amongst many others), how will people remember the 2000’s and 2010’s the most in 15-20 years time? Good or bad tongue.gif

Ones that instantly come to mind for me are:
How To Save A Life
So What
Cry Me A River
Mr Brightside
Poker Face
Feel Good Inc.

Aka ones I can 100% sing the chorus to despite not listening to for years (in some cases) laugh.gif

A few of the Spotify chart staples from the 00s seem to be Lose Yourself, Naive, Can't Stop and Mr Brightside (obviously) so definitely those at least.

Some of the big urban ones too, Igntion and In Da Club will go down as all time classics if they aren't already.

As for era defining artists the 00s really was the decade of Britney, Eminem, Kylie, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Kanye, Beyoncé and probs a few others.

For the 2010s people will instantly think of Ed Sheeran and Adele, and Rihanna too though she may end up being more associated with the 00s for when her career started.

Adele and Gaga would be the first two that stand out for me when I'm not thinking hard.
For 2000s music... I think of a lot of indie hits. It's pretty hard to think of what will be best remembered in the 2020s and 30s.

Hard to say which era Rihanna will fall into. It feels like she's been absolute A-List since the 2010s and before that was getting there but not quite there yet. I feel like Work will go down as her biggest song in the US (until she gets another, bigger), but in the UK probably it's still Umbrella.

Gorillaz would probably be another one, along with Coldplay who've gone strength to strength in the 2000s-2010s. Take That Rule The World maybe? It's already moved up to being one of their biggest tunes and is very consistently popular in the UK.

It's not the first song I'd think of when I think of Justin Timberlake though, nor do I ever hear it on the radio, in a club, etc. etc.
So not exactly the most likely to be remembered by the absolute as mainstream as possible. Where are people going to be randomly coming across it?

it's not a club anthem but I'd say it's his most well known song prior to Can't Stop The Feeling, that and SexyBack.

It was famous for tabloid spin, thanks to him shittin on Britney (again), but it's not famous outside of that. His most famous is Can't Stop The Feeling. That might be a classic eventually, maybe.

Well Ylvis - The Fox which has over 700 million youtube views is hardly widely deemed to be a modern day classic, is it? (Although I would deem it a classic tbh as it is a great tune I think wink.gif )

I do agree Cry Me A River still gets occasional radio AirPlay so I would say it qualifies for being a modern day classic.

Omg this. A modern day masterpiece. *.*

I will throw 'Get Busy' by Sean Paul into the ring! That seems to be another recognisable urban noughties song, along with the likes of 'Ignition' and 'In Da Club' that people have already touched upon. Seems to be a house party classic.

An interesting way to flip this subject is also thinking about songs that you thought would become modern day classics, but that didn't quite happen. The sublime 'Somebody That I Used To Know' by Gotye feat. Kimbra is always the one that comes to mind for me, that feels way too forgotten nowadays </3
