41 Throwback Songs To Start The New Decade

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Western chapter.

“It was the end of a decade. But the start of an age.” — “Long Live” by Taylor Swift 

I am one of the few people that do not enjoy listening to rap music in this generation. Also, off the top of my head, I don’t think that I could list a rapper that I know about very well. The music that I enjoy listening to mostly consists of the singers Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan. But, I also enjoy listening to songs that most of us grew up with. 

Below, I have compiled a list of throwback songs that consist of popular singers such as One Direction, Kelly Clarkson, Selena Gomez, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift.
