Subject: Songs you thought were older/newer than they are

Written By: Zelek3 on 02/14/20 at 10:44 pm

Others brought this up, but High Hopes by Panic! at the Disco sounds like it should've come out in like 2011, not 2018. The chintzy horns, motivational lyrics, Autotune, skyscraper and lensfare imagery, etc. seems like a throwback to the early 2010s.


UGK (Underground Kingz) - Int'l Players Anthem feels like a 2003 song stuck in 2007, mostly due to the presence of Outkast.


I was surprised when I learned Fly Like an Eagle was a 70s song. For some reason I used to think it was a 90s song when I was younger, perhaps due to Seal's cover.


#Infinity mentioned before that while Sugar Sugar by The Archies came out in 1969, it sounds like it could've just as easily come out in 1959.


Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World came out in 1968, but some people assumed it was a 30s-40s song.


Cars by Gary Numan is a 1979 song, but most people associate it with the 80s (this is the case with many new wave songs from 1978-79).

^ It's nice that you want to share all these songs, but our admins/lead mods highly recommend limiting posts to two clips at most, as a courtesy to other members. Too many of them can cause page-loading problems on other people's browsers.
