Most weeks on chart for a non-top 20 hit

Since the chart began only 43 songs have spent 21 or more weeks on the listing without making the top 20 and this includes all chart runs. You’ll notice that 36 of them have been since 2000. Whatever your opinion of the music in the 21st Century,  is it a good or bad thing that songs that don’t reach the top 20 are spending longer on the chart? Here’s the list:
