    One way you can define it are those songs that have been acclaimed for being full-circle with fans and have stood the test of time. Personally I'd just describe it as something that resonates with you heavily. Been playing this one for as long as I can remember.

    Stan is a perfect example.

    Now I know some of you might get tired of hearing that song being brought up, but the production, story telling, flow, is untouchable and I think it will remain a classic for years upon years, not just because it's Eminem, but because of how well it was produced and made, from beginning to end no other song can touch it.

    It will remain in a class by itself for years.

    you can't define something that's classic, it has to have that intangible quality

    there's no real formula lol

    edit: a classic track

    A song that is top notch in every aspect, standout from the classic Hip Hop track and get stuck in your head is from me a classic.

    One of my favorite examples is Growing Pains II. He took the beat from another classic track and made it sound fresh again with memorable lyrics and flow.
