100 Throwback Songs You Need to Listen To

Updated on August 7, 2018

What's the name of that old song I loved to sing way back in 2008?!

Every couple of months, I end up humming the tune of a song I haven't heard in three or four years, which I don't know the name of, and that I never seem to remember hearing in the first place. Every few weeks, I end up scream-singing the lyrics of an iconic song that was overplayed years ago and that is now vastly underplayed. I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds myself doing this! So, I decided to make a list of throwback songs that I love listening to, and I'm sure some of you do as well! Whether you enjoyed pop music, hip-hop, R&B, Alternative, or metal music, you're sure to find one of your old favorite bops on this list!
