I can't tell what I listen to more: music that came out before my time (I'm a 90s baby if that helps) or current music. Well I do love listening to some throwbacks! It's great to hear the original songs of what musical artists today sometimes sample from. Not only that but hearing certain songs from years ago remind you of what your life was like at that time when the song came out. I know for me sometimes I try to think of what life was like back then if it the song came out way before my time. Haha! It's more than likely that you'll know a few songs. If you know all of them, I'll be impressed though! These songs are from the 70s ranging all the way to the early 00s. They are in no type of order. Enjoy!
