Music is one of life’s real joys, it has the power to lift the spirit, touch the soul and mend heartache, which is why we are celebrating a few musical birthdays today.
Global (16 January 2023) – Time may fly, but good music is timeless! We love a good song and dance like the next person, so we thought we would take a look at all the songs turning the big Two Oh this year. While doing our research, we found a few other oldies but goodies!
We love all the music that was once a new hit and is now a lifelong “oldie”. While we are not sure if 20 years classifies as “oldie” music (the current generation may beg to differ), we are still excited for a few of these throwbacks.
Which songs are some of your favourites from 20-plus years ago? Let us know in the comments.
These are some of the songs turning 20 this year.
Who doesn’t love singing The Killer’s Mr. Brightside at the top of their lungs, with a fake British accent? (We see you “Holiday” fans!)
Hey Ya by Outcast, this one is great at getting everyone on the dance floor! Am I right?
Where is the Love? by Black Eyed Peas. This one became the anthem of a generation of change. People took notice and started making a difference.
The Foo Fighters – Times Like These is a roll your window down and wave your hand through the air kind of song.
How about some Matchbox 20 with Unwell?
P!nk was always vocal about injustice but her song Trouble, showed the world she was definitely prepared to fight for what is right.
In our search for the songs turning 20, we found a few that also celebrate the big 50 this year. All these albums were released in 1973.
Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” Album turns 50 this year, meaning songs like Candle in the Wind and Bennie and the Jets are 50. The music video was redone about 5 years ago for Bennie and the Jets. Take a look below.
Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” is also 50 years old this year. Money is one of the popular songs on the album.
And one last one from 1973, Creedance Clearwater Revival “I Put a Spell on You”.
