David Jung via
Blast from the past! Here is a list of nostalgic songs to bring you back to your childhood!

Flashback to the 2000’s! Here is a list of songs to accompany you while you take a trip down memory lane. Whether you were attending a middle school dance or having a sleepover with your friends, these songs were likely on in the background while you lived up your youth.

Fireflies – Owl City

This song emulates the feeling of being amidst a meteor shower. With the unique yet catchy beat, this song transports you to an era where life was simpler and there were few worries in life.

TiK ToK – Kesha

Every dance party was sure to include this song, never failing to make all the girls go crazy the moment the beat started. In the game Just Dance, this song always brought the energy during an intense round of dancing.

Stitches – Shawn Mendez

Elementary heartbreak, anyone? All the kids would sing this song at the top of their lungs, unleashing their childhood romance problems. Even if you couldn’t relate to the lyrics, this song was fun to memorize and sing.

Ride – Twenty One Pilots

Twenty One Pilots captured the essence of our childhoods. When this song was released, everyone was obsessed. The catchy tone and tempo made this tune easy to sing along to.

Party In The U.S.A. – Miley Cyrus

Was it really a party in the U.S.A. without this song playing at every event? This song is an absolute necessity at every get together, sleepover, holiday, party, etc. Not only was this song easy to sing, but it is also a great dance song for every occasion.

Shut Up and Dance – WALK THE MOON

This song got annoying really quickly. But while it was hot, it was the song of the century. Everywhere you went, you were sure to hear this song; in retrospect, it brings back fond memories.

Counting Stars – OneRepublic

This was the peak of all 2000’s music. Even though we were likely too young to understand the song’s full meaning back then, we now understand that this song is about human’s worldly and greedy desires. Its catchy tune will keep us coming back for years to come.

Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen

No one likes this song, yet everyone sings it when it comes on. It’s a 2000s classic that everyone knows, often getting stuck in people’s heads, despite how much it’s hated.

Royals – Lorde

This song represents Lorde’s dislike for the lavish lifestyles that many pop culture icons live. This staple song from the past will always be a part of our generation’s playlist, even as the music industry continues to progress.

I’m Yours – Jason Mraz

This is a cute and wholesome love song for all to enjoy. Even though the lyrics weren’t relatable to most of us in our youth, it was still a fun song to sing and pretend like we understood the feeling of being wanted.
