An Old Soul's Playlist

Revisiting the 60s, 70s, and 80s music scene

An Old Soul's Playlist

There are no sounds quite comparable to the tunes that filled American radios through what some may consider the greatest eras of music. Artists including Elvis, the Beatles and the Beach Boys struck the hearts of innumerable fans throughout the 1960s. In the 1970s, bands such as Meat Loaf and the Jackson 5 infused music lovers with legendary songs we continue jamming to present-day. And of course, we must acclaim one of the most renowned music eras. The 1980s brought us singers like Cyndi Lauper, Billy Joel and the Police, not to mention a plethora of tracks still popular today.
