Spotify Weekly Playlist: oldies but goodies

By MAURICIO PLIEGO

Music nowadays is considered very diverse and everyone has a choice in what they decide to listen to in their free time. The oldies is a genre that has been around for a while, but it has increased in popularity in recent years. Famous singers like Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin have made a comeback with an increasing amount of listeners in 2019. Original songs have inspired current artists in contemporary songs, and they can be heard almost anywhere you go. The genre varies throughout the time period of 1950-1980. This specific genre is sadly uncommon on the radio, as there are few stations dedicated to these songs and artists. Currently, the genre is popular among multiple generations, as it looks back into a time when, according to some people, music held true meaning. My personal top 10 songs vary in artist and time period, and they are in no particular order. However, in my opinion, these are the best of the best from their time.

When a Man Loves a Woman- Percy Sledge

Build Me Up Buttercup- The Foundations

All I have to do is Dream- The Everly Brothers

My Way- Frank Sinatra

(What a) Wonderful World- Sam Cooke

Somethin’ Stupid- Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra
