Music can whisk us back to a time and place we had long forgotten. From tragic ballads to upbeat celebrations of love, there are a myriad of songs telling the story of human emotion and existence that art always does.

As Billy Joel put it in “Piano Man,” “Can you play me a memory? I’m not really sure how it goes//but it’s sad and it’s sweet and I knew it complete//when I wore a younger man’s clothes.” I have always been a fan of classic songs that never stop being relatable, so turn on any of these 20 songs I’ve compiled from the good ol’ days before we were born – and let it play you a memory.
