how do you figure some songs will last till the end of time, but yet some songs (Justin Beiber) don't last?
like Bohemian Rhapsody from Queen
or American Pie from Don McLean

I think it depends on the type and quality pf the song. Example: The two songs ypu mentioned above are high quality rock pieces that are timeless because not only are they good songs, but they have many different genres in them (the acoustic part of American Pie) and therefore appeal to a broader audience. Justin Bieber's music, on the other hand, is strictly little-girl pop music only, and also is very poor in quality, so it will not last as long.

Failed arguement you can't actually prove that Bieber is not lasting
In fact the data compiled by Last.Fm would state the contrary
All of those little girls & little feggits who listen to Bieber right now, may well still be listening to him, and regarding him as "classic" in 10, 20, 30, 40 years.
Meanwhile in 10,20, 30, 40 years most fans of Don McClean and such, will probably be dead, and then no one will be making his music (cough, one song cough) "last" anymoreSource(s): Not even a fan of Bieber. Just saying your argument is invalid.
