Wow This song from Japan Resembles something Carlos Santana would have done in the 2000s though.

Heard the song "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse.  Definitely has the feel of an early 1960's song.

Dang I heard the remix from the Weeknd at first and I thought that cut was from the late 1980's and an unreleased Al B Sure song.

Rob Thomas just released a new song but one of his  new songs "Timeless" resembles the late 1980's early 1990's  though.

I keep thinking that Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" was from the 1960s, but it was actually from 1980.

Heh.  Some of us remember when it came out. :D

"I Love You Always Forever", Donna Lewis.  Honestly thought this song came out in the late 1980s, but it was actually 1996.  The album it came off of is also very good.

The 1812 Overture.

Would have thought it was form 1812 or soon after based on the name, but it actually debuted in 1882.
Would have helped if I knew it was by Tchaikovsky, or when he lived.

I thought that Steal Away by Robbie Dupree was from the 70's as it has the sound similar to songs like Laughter In The Rain by Neil Sedaka or any song by Neil Diamond of that era.

Then Union Of The Snake by Duran Duran was one I thought came out in the early 90's as that was the first time I ever heard it then.  It was not until a few years back I heard a rebroadcast of an old American Top 40 with Casey Casum that I learned that it came out in the early 80's.  In fact I thought at first Sam Becket from Quantum Leap, the NBC drama from the late 80's and early 90's about a man trapped in time changing history who changed history in front of my eyes it seemed so weird that I felt that it was a 90's song.

I guess it might of been when living in NJ in the 80's I listened to WNEW and did not hear the song when it did come out, and when I moved to FL in 1990 they must of decided on one station to replay stuff from the past.

The would have never sung about that back then. Not only was it probably taboo, they probably didn't abbreviate back them. Would have probably said "Gonna get me some rehabilitation, for that alcoholism"

In 1977 Fleetwood Mac's Rumours came out, selling more than 40 million copies. On it were pop songs like "Dreams", which we've all heard 1000 times:
They've written better stuff, though, including the blues-oriented "The Chain": another example of a rock band's earlier stuff being better than the newer.
Too bad they had to sell out and go soft, huh.

However, "The Chain" and "Dreams" are on the same album.

Iím So Afraid on the Buckingham/Nicks debut Fleetwood Mac album is a great bass/guitar driven track.

"You Get What You Give" by New Radicals came out in 1998.  It sounds mid 1980's to me--the song kind of sounded like something the Electric Light Orchestra would have done in the 1980's.

This isn't much newer than I thought, but "Groove Tonight" by Earth, Wind, and Fire is in a pharmaceutical ad. I thought that it was from the 1970s. It's from 1981. I think it's a cover in the ad because it doesn't sound as synth-heavy as the EWF version.

I too thought that song was from the 70s until I looked it up last summer; it was one of the last disco songs to make the charts around here.

Steal Away came out in 1980, the year after another song that sounds a lot like it, What a Fool Believes by the Doobie Brothers.

Another one that would seem a lot older is Theme From New York, New York.  Considering most of Sinatra's hits came out in the 40's and 50's, this one came out in 1979 (the original Liza Minelli version came out two years prior).

For a time, the Yankees played Sinatraís version after a win and Minelliís version after a loss. Not surprisingly Minelli did not appreciate this and told the team to knock it off, so since then they just play the Sinatra version win or lose.

I think Frank Sinatra's version was from around 1980. It was also the last time he appeared in the Top 40.

I eventually found out that "NY, NY" was actually younger than me. But I did, for a long time, think it was a song from Sinatra's prime like "Strangers in the Night." (Please don't tell me that that one is actually from 1973 or thereabouts.)

1966? That's newer than I thought, but not by a lot.

Nah.  That's my parents' song and they met in 1972 (on a road trip between Provo, UT and Phoenix, AZ).

Connections to the songs help date them.

Wait a minute. I was 11 years old in 1972. You weren't even born then. Yet some of the comments you make about your Kentucky roots and visits sound like they're straight out of the 1950s or 1960s. I had you pegged as being well into your 60s.

Heh.  I guess I'm just an "old soul." :D

Still, the stuff I talk about mostly isn't from way back in the 1950s or 1960s.  I mean, I talk about remembering "New 80" being completed (and my grandfather driving us on it before it was) or the tolls being removed from the Mountain Parkway or, even more recently, the "Four Lane" bypass of Prestonsburg (US 23/US 460) -- those things are more recent than the 1950s and 1960s.  Other than that, I do pass along what my mother's or other relatives' experiences were growing up in eastern Kentucky (e.g., driving along KY 122 when portions of it was still the creek bed -- that was before my time...although the completion of KY 680 into Minnie certainly was not and cut a lot of time off of the drive from Martin to Wheelwright for us).  Thought I was pretty good about prefacing whatever I said as coming from what my mother told me when that was the case; sorry for the confusion.

Then again, some more cynical people might claim that some parts of Floyd County were a decade or so behind as is! :D
