Blast From the Past Compilation of 50's to 90's Music

Updated on April 27, 2020

I grew up with music, and found it made handling and being in control much more easier in my daily life.

In my last article of Mitara’s Blast from the Past, I asked for requests from my hubbers so I could compile an album of their most favourites songs. Here are some tunes dedicated to my dear hubbers:


Kyler, had shared his love for music being into 60's-80's modern blend music. One of his favourites is the band "Gunship". I must say after listening to their music, being entranced by their instrumental vision, I have added to my playlist. Gunship offers a genre of synthwave music deriving from the essence of the 1980’s culture and atmosphere. A very nostalgic form of music from the words to the tune that deserves a listen to be appreciated.

Kenny G

A Saxophone artist, born in Seattle and began playing the saxophone from the tender age of 10 and continued to play professionally at a young age of 17 in 1973. He then enrolled at the University to study accounting while pursuing a music career. He connected and networked with many people that noticed his talent, leading him in releasing his first debut album in 1982 that soared a career to his international fame. A Grammy Award-winning saxophonist and passionate golfer, Kenny G.

Michael Bolton

Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Michael Bolotin better known as Michael Bolton. Did you know Michael Bolton originally performed heavy metal to hard rocks genres of music from mid-1970, moving his talent toward soft rock soulful pleasures to the ear on his first album released in 1983. Michael Bolton has since been active in charity work supporting charities aiding various cause, named Michael Bolton Charities.

Elvis Presley

My dear friend Ruby, expressed her love for music.

One of her favourites, as well as many is a legacy in his own right, Elvis Presley. He is considered a significant icon of the 20th century known as the “King of Rock and Roll". From humble beginnings he grew up with a loving family and continued his devotion to them throughout his life, not forgetting most of his songs showing a hopeless romantic side to him.

Ray Charles

His gradual loss of sight was soon after witnessing the drowning of his younger brother which was a traumatic childhood event for him. At the age of 7 he had lost his sight completely. A nostalgic pioneer of soul integrating R&B, country, pop, the blues and gospel, Ray Charles, also known as the “Father of Soul”.

Music of various genre’s are appreciated around the world, speaks to the body, mind and soul in different forms of inspiration and tranquillity. Listen and enjoy to the heart’s content.

      Hi Eric,

      They don't make songs like they used to, thats why even children of today are hooked onto the golden oldies. Then so much more thought and feeling to songs written.

      Your son has good taste.

      Thank you for appreciating the write, and value your comments always.

      Take care, keep well and be safe

      My dear Ruby,

      This list was compiled with your favourites in mind. While writing and listening to these tunes, took me to back, appreciating thoughts and memories linked to my subconscious in that time.

      Always appreciate and value your comments.

      I'm so happy to see and hear that you enjoyed Gunship! They really are an amazing group, deserving of much love and appreciation. I'm surprised Michael Bolton made your list, he gets a lot of flack but I think his voice is splendid!

      A lovely blend of music here, Mitara!

      It is cool to hear these and realize how many more songs are a result of classics. My 10 year old like "old" music as much as current.

      There's some really great music in this article! It can't be compared with today's modern "hits".

      This makes for an interesting lockdown playlist. My neighbour had his radio on outside yesterday. I was intrigued to hear a number one song from 1949.

      Talk about a blast from the past! Some of my favorites, Michael Bolton, Ray Charles, of course Elvis. I didn't mention George Jones, he's my favorite country singer. This was a fun read!
