The Ultimate Throwback Playlist

It takes time and patience to craft the perfect playlist, no matter what the theme or occasion may be. One of my personal favorite playlists to crank is my Ultimate Throwback Playlist, which will uplift a mood at any given moment. These songs will bring you back to the times of skorts and pre-teen angst. What better way to remember your middle school days than with some of the finest music ever produced?
