It’s silly to think that ‘Today’s Top Hits’ are going to someday be called ‘Classics of the 21st Century’!
I can’t help but wonder if 30 years from now I’ll be pulling up the song Baby from Justin Beiber while raving to my kids about how big of a crush I had on him. Or if I’ll successfully embarrass my kid’s friends when I drive them to games by belting every word to every song on all of my old Taylor Swift CDs that I had just found in my closet. As a kid, my mom’s on-repeat album was Styx, and I also remember loving Purple People Eater the first time my dad played it for me on a camping trip.
I am willing to bet that there are songs from the past that still have a special spot in your heart. I am also willing to bet that the song lists below include some of those songs. I’ve created a playlist of 10 of the most classic songs from the past 6 decades, give them a listen! I hope they get you reminiscing, bobbing your head and singing your heart out!
