To me a good artist has the ability,thru their art, to transcend time. When I think of songs like "For the love of Money" and "BackStabbers" they are "prophetic". I mean look at the world today; most of the ills that plague our society today can be traced back to some aspect of these songs. On a more positive note, we have "Love Train" which was a call to all people to come together. There was "Family Reunion" which called for unity among families, and "Stairway to Heaven" TIMELESS!!
