Damn. I hope that's not true, or I wouldn't think any song was a classic.

A classic to me? A song that I really like that has a little extra something, something you cannot really count.

A classic in general discussion? A song generally regarded as great.

Beautiful Day for me, in that case.

Casablanca is a "classic" movie.

But I don't even know what the fuck a song is, so I can't answer this question.

Maybe a song with some kind of cultural impact, and one that has an ongoing resonance among many, and somehow doesn't seem to ever become forgotten

Imagine - John Lennon
Stairway To Heaven - Led Zep
Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve
YMCA - Village People

A classic can only be a classic really if the majority agree it is a good song, as you are hardly goin to get many people agree Creature Fear by Bon Iver as a classic when most people go 'Bon Iver, what!?'. It is only ever otherwise going to be a great song to you and a select few.

Something that can sound as new as the day it was released.
A song that changed the sound of things. (Hope that made sense.)

A classic to me is a song with a good beat, meaningful lyrics that make you think about their meaning and a song on a whole that makes you smile and want to listen to it and sometimes to sing along repeatedly. A song that each time you hear it can remind you of how beautiful it is and who you were the very first time you heard it.
