Playlist of the week: Oldies and goodies

Do you ever get tired of listening to the same songs by the same artists from top hits playlists? Yeah, me too. Here is a refreshing playlist with songs that you may have heard before, but it’s probably been a while. Maybe they're even songs that your parents once blasted in the car until you rolled your eyes and plugged in your earphones.

Don’t let these old songs fool you. Just because most of them are as old as or older than your parents doesn’t mean they aren’t still great songs. From Elvis Presley to Whitney Houston, this playlist is filled with some classic hits that I won’t let you forget, and some deep cuts that never should have been forgotten.

So, let these old jams, bops and tunes take you to a simpler time, but also appreciate how these songs are still good, even after 30-plus years.
