However for One Sweet Day, this is such a beautiful and meaningful song. The 16 no.1s has been there for 20 freaking years. And seeing so many singles reaching 14th weeks no.1s and could never made it to the 15th has made One Sweet Day very special.
Not only does the song have a lovely and timeless message, but I, as someone who loves exuberant vocal arrangements, also take great pleasure in knowing that the longest-running #1 song currently is such a vocal masterpiece. Imagine someone a hundred years from now deciding to listen to the song that holds the record and hearing all these harmonies, ad-libs, powerful belts and beautiful intricate runs. It makes one proud to be a contemporary of such talented singers.
Alternatively, they may hear utter vocal mediocrity that is Despacito - at least when compared to OSD. Of course, a lot can happen a hundred years from now; perhaps both OSD and Despacito will have been long forgotten, but I'm just sayin'.
