20 Best Throwback Songs

We all have that guilty pleasure soundtrack that we all may act like we don’t have…. but we do. These are songs that are older than your grandparents, yet you still somehow listen to them on repeat often. The best way to label this soundtrack would be somewhere along the lines of: “Your Older Cousin’s Family Wedding Playlist”. Whether you listen to these songs while driving, showering, or pre-gaming… we all do it. If you do not already have this playlist…, luckily for you: we made one just for you!
