As a teenager, I used to wonder how dad could love those oldies from the 50s and 60s so much, when today’s music is obviously far better. As a 30-something, I now know why. Instantly transporting us to the feelings and emotions of the past, music is about as close as we come to a medium of time travel.
The Apple Music Store now provides access to the Billboard Top 100 list, going back to (I think) the early 60s. Last night I downloaded some old favs from the late 80s and early 90s, and enjoyed reminiscing the days of cruising the strip in Daytona Beach with my buddies listening to Def Leppard’s Photograph, and that first girlfriend breakup listening to Dan Fogelberg’s Same Old Lang Syne. 🙂
