FAVOURITE SONGS

Thanks to having “tweenage” daughters, I’m at least familiar with that music scene. I’ve seen Justin Bieber, Hannah Montana, and Katy Perry 1 movies […], and I can confidently identify which one is Demi Lovato and which one is Selena Gomez. I know every lyric to every Taylor Swift song ever written, even though I can’t help but silently mock the twenty three-year-old’s appalling lack of perspective when she croons wistfully about “feeling twenty-two.” […] This isn’t always a good thing, of course. I’ve been busted at the gym singing along with One Direction, and once when Joe and I were driving to L.A. without the kids, we realized halfway there that we’d been listening to our daughters’ Disney Jams 15 CD on a continual loop. And singing along with it. But just the other day, the girls came home from school with a magical surprise in store for me. “Just a small-town squirrel,” my youngest began singing. Of course I recognized the tune immediately. “It’s girl,” I corrected her. She ignored me. “Living in a lovely world,” her sister joined in. “It’s lonely,” I should. “Lonely world!” They kept singing. How do you guys know this song?” I asked, astounded. “We learned it in music class,” they informed me. “It’s awesome! We love it!” I started the next line for them. Now it was their turn to look surprised. “How do you know this song?” they demanded, with insulting emphasis on the “you”, I might add. “This song was one of my favorites when I was your age,” I told them, all nostalgic. They exchanged glances, clearly debating whether or not they could continue to like the tune given this new information. Finally, they caved². “Born and raised in self-control!” they shouted. “It’s South Detroit,” I interjected. “What?” they asked this time, exasperated and annoyed at being interrupted again.

"Another One Bites the Dust" by British band Queen.

Genre : Funk rock

Realeased in 1980

"Another One Bites the Dust" has been covered, remixed and sampled by many artists since its release, and has also appeared in TV shows, commercials, films and other media. The song has also featured at sports events.

In 2021, the song resurfaced on Tiktok.

"Dreams" is a song by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac from their eleventh studio album, Rumours (1977).

Genre : soft rock

In late 2020, the song experienced a widespread resurgence in popularity as a result of a viral TikTok video created by Nathan Apodaca. The song subsequently re-entered national music charts in certain countries and also entered the Spotify and Apple Music charts in certain countries.[5] "Dreams" was ranked number nine on Rolling Stone's 2021 list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

"It's Tricky" is the fourth single released from Run-DMC's third album, Raising Hell. It was released early in 1987 through Profile Records and was co-produced by Rick Rubin and the group themselves.

It has become a holiday phenomena on TikTok. After the original video was created by TikTok user Alexandra Karadimas, fans have been posting vids of themselves dancing to the song.

"Rasputin" is a song by Germany-based pop and Euro disco group Boney M. It was released on 28 August 1978 as the second single from their third studio album Nightflight to Venus (1978). Written by the group's creator Frank Farian, along with George Reyam and Fred Jay, it is a song about Grigori Rasputin, a friend and advisor of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and his family during the early 20th century. The song describes Rasputin as a playboy, mystical healer, and political manipulator.

Genre : Disco-pop-polka

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasputin_(song)


Now, the song is very popular on TikTok with thousands of users using the song in their videos.

Edison Lighthouse’s ‘Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)’

The song, which reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1970, has seen an explosion in its streaming consumption after the song started getting adapted into a TikTok meme of users posting clips and photos of themselves to accompany the song’s lyrics — usually the opening lines, “She ain’t got no money/ Her clothes are kinda funny/ Her hair is kinda wild and free/ Oh but love grows where my Rosemary goes…”

Genre : soft rock-bubblegum.

The video-sharing platform beloved by Gen Z is giving new life to some very old tunes.

Mention of the video-sharing platform TikTok brings to mind two things: a) the endless torrent of spellbindingly inane 15-second clips created by its gargantuan teen userbase, and b) its ironclad ability to make anyone born before the turn of the millennium feel like a bewildered OAP. Yet since the app’s global launch in 2018, TikTok has carved out another reputation: as a musical tastemaker. Forget Spotify algorithms or, shudder, the mass media, nowadays young people are discovering their new favourite tunes layered under bedroom makeup tutorials or films of body-popping GCSE students.

That means TikTok can make unknown tracks go stratospheric; Old Town Road, Lil Nas X’s country-rap smash, owes its success to a cleverly engineered TikTok challenge. Yet the app also uses its hit-making powers to give random songs a second life: decade-old singles, such as Mariah Carey’s Obsessed and Jay Sean’s Ride It, have both enjoyed massive popularity spikes thanks to tie-in TikTok dance challenges. […]

In fact, TikTok’s penchant for excavating vintage tunes can be rather comforting: recently, the app found itself in the grip of YMCA mania, thanks to a challenge involving the school disco standard and face-tracker software. The global, never-ending talent show that is TikTok teenagerdom might seem horrifyingly newfangled, but it feels like a relief to know this tomorrow’s world can’t quite leave the past behind.

She is relieved to see that this very modern platform can promote old songs. "tomorrow's world can't quite leave the past behind".

Make a musical time capsule

THE IDEA: If you’ve never made a time capsule before, the idea is to find a box or some sort of container, and fill it with significant objects that will spark memories when you open it years later. Ideally, you are supposed forget what’s in the box until you open it. Decide on a specific date or a certain year that you would like to open it, and mark it on the outside, then HIDE IT. Don’t open it, touch it, or peek until your target date.

7 ideas of what to put inside:

  • A list of popular songs in 2022
  • A USB drive with a playlist of your favourite songs.
  • Tickets from past concerts. Collect tickets from a few (or one) of the best concerts you’ve attended. On the back, write who went to the concert with you. That way, you can call your friend and reminisce about that perfect night after you open your capsule.
  • Concert & festival bracelets.
  • Pictures, pictures, pictures!
  • Buttons, stickers, articles and other mementos.
  • Fan letters...

Record a message to your future self. Explain what music sounds like in 2022. How important it is for you. what media you use to listen to music... Also explain how you picture yourself in the future. Can you imagine what music will be like?
