This is a screen shot from Spotify or my Throwback Playlist.

If your a big music junkie like me or looking for some new songs to add to your playlist, then I’m here to help with that.



Okay like I mentioned, I am a big fan of music and rely on it all the time. I have so many playlists on my Spotify, about 15 of them to be exact, but the one I will be talking about in this article is my “Throwback” playlist. There is a total of 85 songs on this playlist and it lasts 5 hours and 8 minutes straight through without ads.

To make this more organized, I’m going to list the songs and if they are my favorites I will explain a little more about them. Also, some of these songs have some bad words in them so if they have a * next to them then they have bad words.



  1. Get Lucky (Daft Punk, feat. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rogers
  2. Feel this Moment (Pitbull, feat. Christina Aguilera)
  3. Classic (MTKO) This song is one of my favorites on this playlist because it gives me memories of a school dance in middle school and early high school. MTKO is a mini band and they have other songs that I enjoy as well.
  4. Party in the U.S.A (Miley Cyrus)
  5. Last Friday Night T.G.I.F (Katy Perry)

  10. Bang Bang( Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj)
  11. *Anaconda (Nicki Minaj)
  12. Shower (Becky G) This was one of Becky G’s first hit singles that I absolutely loved. And every time I hear this song it gives me memories from like 7th grade when I and my friends would scream to this song. And don’t ask me why we would scream to this song, it was funny to us back then.
  13. Hot N Cold (Katy Perry)
  14. *Bad Romance (Lady Gaga)
  15. Just Give Me A Reason ( P!nk, Nate Ruess)

  32. Fireflies (Owl City) Okay so this song, every time it plays my friends and I always make up stories on how they wrote in. We made a joke that they were drunk or high when they wrote this song because if you really listen to this song, you can’t fully understand what is going on.

  45. Counting Stars (OneRepublic)
  46. Waiting for Love (Avicii) This song gave me memories of when I was in elementary school, and my old gym teacher would always play this song when we would run laps around the gym.

I play this playlist when I want to get a reminder of my childhood, and it is also great to play at work. All my friends and co-workers like this playlist more than my other playlists. We all love blasting these songs after we close while we clean.

So I hope this helped you get some ideas of what you could add to your playlist or even add to your own “throwback” playlist.
