What makes a song outdated exactly? I find it to be timeless!

The only thing I can think of is that if a song is completely about some specific historical event. Like a song called "In the upcoming election, I'm voting for Bill Clinton, and here's why". Other than that, music does not have a date.

The Girl from Ipanema is a beautiful song and I love Stan Getz. Terrible English lyrics, though, so cheesy! Supposedly the original Portuguese is better but I wouldn't know, not speaking the language myself.

I wonder if I can find a video for "The Battle Of New Orleans"? By the way- that song is meant to be funny, but considering the historical facts, it's anything but. The battle was fought AFTER the US and England had signed a peace treaty, but before the news got to the soldiers in that area- so was a complete waste of life.
