I used to like some of their stuff - I'm a believer - in particular and thought I play it on YouTube as I'd not heard it in ages but even I could tell it hadn't lasted well over the years. So I wondered if any song could last that time (I'm not particularly into classical music so I automatically ruled that out - I'm just looking at 'popular' music).
I give you three songs below that I think have stood the test of time - but do you agree?
Please feel free to add others you like to the list.
The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face - Roberta Flack
Ok it didn't become famous until 1972 but it was recorded by Roberta on her album in 1969 - beautiful song I think.
Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
Well we all know this one has past the test of time (and also links in to the Monkees as well - Diamond writing many of their hits).
Space Oddity - David Bowie
Hard to believe that Bowie was around fifty years ago - God how time flies.
So what do you think?
