15 Songs You Probably Didn’t Realize Were Turning 20 This Year

I still can’t quite wrap my mind around the fact that it’s actually 2017. We’ve crossed the threshold into a new year and time is already flying by. Two decades ago we had no clue what the future was going to hold. There were no iPhones, no Facebook or Instagram, and definitely no drones flying over our heads. Can you imagine?

In the past 20 years, the way we listen to music has also been revolutionized. Remember CD’s? Yeah, those still exist, but now we are fortunate enough to play the majority of our tunes for free on streaming services like Spotify. In the spirit of throwback Thursdays and reminiscing about the past, we’ve put together a playlist that is sure to jolt you right back to 1997.
