Future Mainstream Classics


Future Mainstream Classics




Trendy yet timeless.


Finding the perfect balance between QUALITY and SUCCESS.


That’s what Future Mainstream Classics is all about—a nostalgic trip through the last 18 years, highlighting 180 Billboard hits from 1998-2015 which still sound fresh today.


Some music never gets tired, others are catchy once and then forgotten. For materials which have been released for more than 18 years, time has helped us to separate the wheat from the chaff. It’s a little trickier with contemporary music, especially in the world of mainstream pop where unlike the alternative scene, we don’t have the advantage of “critical consensus”.


I started this little music project back in December 2012. I compiled a Pinterest list of 150 future mainstream classics over the span of 15 years (1998-2012), and then continued to add new songs at the end of every year on my blog.


2015 has ended, so yeah, that means NEW SONGS have been added!!! =)

I don't like Mainstream Pop, so this list is not for me. But i think the theme is good. It's interesting to see if these songs are still good in 10 or 20 years. Maybe your prediction is right. :)
