What is the next generation of bar songs? Mustang Sally of tomorrow?

Seems some songs from the 80's have already edged into that "standards" list..

...like White Wedding from Billy Idol

If you are a wedding band, that is a standard...has been since its release almost...

Maybe standards are not determined by age?

Anyone have an example of a standard that is from the last 10 years?
Cupid Shuffle has become a standard... How old is that? I would guess no more than 10 years.

EDIT: It came out in 2007, and it is more of a standard at weddings, dances, ho-downs, hoot-n-a-hollers, and ice cream socials. Not so much live music venues.

LOL - we play, and I sing, this song as well :)
I'm not surprised :)

Just thought of another - Hallelujah. That thing's been covered more times than Wimbledon. They even played it when the pope visited Sydney a while ago ... they obviously didn't pick up on the lyrics ...
