Memorable songs from childhood earn place on senior playlist

Karys Gates, Staff Writer

We all have those certain songs that remind us of specific times in life, so we decided to take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about some of the greatest, most monumental songs that have been released throughout the past couple decades. This particular playlist, put together by the Senior Class, is filled with their most nostalgic throwbacks. 


“Despacito” – Justin Bieber ft. Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi: This song was released in 2017 and was a hit from the get go. Most of us can sing this song word for word just from hearing it thousands of times on the radio. 


“Boom Clap” – Charli XCX: This hidden gem from The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack took the spotlight in 2014. This catchy song is still, to this day, very hard not to sing and dance along to, as we still see it all over TikTok. 


“Flashing Lights” – Kanye West: This is a song that will never go out of style. This top hit is still popular to this day, even after 15 years.  


“The Climb” – Miley Cyrus: This song never ceases to get someone in their feels. This motivational masterpiece will immediately bring you back to the good old Hannah Montana days. 


“Cheerleader” – OMI: You either love or hate this song,but I can guarantee we all know every word to it. 


“Ain’t it fun” – Paramore: The second this song comes on, you’re brought straight back to elementary school. It’s always carried such good vibes and the best memories.


“Fireflies” – Owl City:  If my childhood could be wrapped up in one song it would be this one. This song brings me back to a time in life when everything was so much simpler.


The list of good throwback/ most nostalgic songs is endless. These were just a few that some of the seniors picked out. We hope as soon as you saw these song titles, you immediately were brought back to a specific moment in your childhood.
