    A song becomes a classic when someone gets up to do it at karaoke and the crowd goes nuts and runs to the DF.

People agreed with her.

    Presumably she only listens to Heart and Heat FM, yet it's amazing how venerated these "bands" are in some places.

    So I dunno really, and I can't judge coz I think Hersham Boys & Echo Beach are "classics".
    I would certainly agree on Hersham Boys but for personal reasons - I used to frequent a pub in Hersham quite a lot which had the silver desk behind the bar. So there's an example of a classic for entirely personal reasons.

    AWTA - don't know if it's because I play guitar but music has always been the main thing to me, lyrics typically are OK with me if they just fit with the meter.

    Except "Dry Your Eyes" by The Streets.

    Oh, and "One of Those Days in England" by Roy Harper.

    And others probably. I like many more for the music though.

    Good discussion. Lately, I care more about 'classic' albums. Like, songs not just designed to become a hit and widely listened to but that mesh into the overarching theme in an album. I really liked Drake's Take Care for that reason. I can listen to that album from start to finish without wanting to skip a track.

    Not too bothered if a song is a "classic" or not tbh. Will listen to it if it's good. I like quite a lot of songs/pieces of music you could probably say were "classics", but I don't like them because they are classics etc...

    Some songs definitely pale through repetition, yeah. For instance I find it impossible to judge Stairway to Heaven on its own merits because it's just sooo familiar.

    The only correct answer. If you wanna hear the classics just hit the Harp on a Sunday night.
