The Nostalgia Machine Website Brings You Way Back


Old music

The nostalgia machine is a cool website, and it’s very simple. Just pick a year of your childhood, adolescence, adult life, and click ‘Hit me’… you will see appear all the greatest hits of the picked year.

I tried for a few years, typical of my youth, let’s say some key years or totally random ones… 1976, 1979,… and, I often realized I didn’t remember half of the songs! But obviously the more I advanced in time, the more songs were very familiar.

What was successful in 1976? ‘Silly Love Songs’, Wings, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, Elton John & Kiki Dee, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Queen, ‘Golden Years’, David Bowie and so many others

In 1979? ‘Le Freak’, Chic, ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’ Rod Stewart, ‘I Will Survive’ Gloria Gaynor, ‘Y.M.C.A.’, Village People, ‘Ring My Bell’, Anita Ward, ‘Heart of Glass’, Blondie, ‘The Logical Song’, Supertramp, and again many, many others

I have always paid attention to music, but it is probably around my 16-20s that I remember the most popular songs, then I started to become less and less interested by the big hits (or may be the hits became less and less interesting) in my 30s and later. So if you feel nostalgic about your sweet 16th year, your prom night or whatever music event you experienced a certain year, just pick the year and you will end up with the perfect time-machine-mixed tape or the appropriate jam for your next high school reunion. The songs are chosen from the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles, and you can endlessly argue with your friends on the subject of the best year ever. One last thing, it stops at 1960!
