Can You Believe These Songs Are Over 10 Years Old?

The other week I was in the gym and because I had forgotten my iPod I was listening to whatever radio station they had on. The DJ started introducing tracks as a throwback to the early naughties or late 90’s and I could not believe how old these tracks were.

I was born just on the cusp of the 90’s in January 1990 and at 26 I’m still pretty young but when I hear that tracks which I love and remember oh so well are 10, 15, even 20 years old I feel like crawling into bed and having a little sob. How is life going so quickly?!  I can still remember all the words to so many of these tracks, who doesn’t remember a lot of the Eminem/ D12 rap sequences and the crooning of Nelly and Kelly?! Come on, I can’t be the only one!

I am very much a creature of habit and while my general music tastes are on the heavier side of the musical spectrum I do love listening to music which isn’t quite as headache inducing and this is where the below playlist comes in. Every since one of the tracks on this list is over 10 years’ old.

Get all nostalgic and check out how much used to sound (FYI I love each and every one of these tracks!)

    Nelly and Kelly always reminds me of my middle daughter, as she was born when that song was on the radio every ten minutes! Some great songs in that playlist, and also some that I have no recollection of at all!

    Things like this always make me feel old! – next year it will be a decade since I graduated and that makes me feel ancient!

    I was 20 in 1991! Most of the 90’s to me were about getting married, setting up home and having babies – it is the decade I least remember for the music! Kaz x

    haha.. I just read a meme that said, ‘when someone says 10 years ago I think of 1996 not 2006!’ It seems crazy that these are 10 years old!

    This takes me right back, I used to love Eminem particularly his work with Dido.

    I do remember Eminem, though admittedly never really listened much to him. I’m a lot older than you, but yes, I know what you mean when you say time is flying by so fast. I look at my daughter and think that all the time! 😉

    Haha wait until you get to 45, then you’ll feel old when they tell you that the song you are singing along to on the radio is 35 years old! Great track list – love it 🙂

    Aw, how lovely! As 40 looms on the horizon for me I’m getting the ‘I can’t believe these songs are 25 years old now!” The radio is calling them golden oldies….!
