You know, I still find it hard to believe that "Thieves," by She & Him isn't some old early-1960's tune by Patsy Cline, or somebody more obscure from that period.

Considering the She in She & Him is Zooey Deschanel, I'm not surprised the song sounds a lot older than it actually is.

Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know It All". It's from 2011 but I keep thinking it's mid-2000s.

I can peg most songs from the 1980s and 1990s almost right down to their chart peak, but anything else I have to look up.

Everclear's AM radio is a song from 2000 but the song resembles the 1970's

Wow this song feels like it was done in the 1980's but the video says its done in the past 2 years.

That's deliberate.  Many artists do that.  Sheryl Crow's All I Wanna Do and its quasi-disco feel is another example.  So is Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars.

That's not actually the real reason, though it could be part of it. That song is a big nostalgia song for me yet I was 11 when it came it.

Apparently Yes but when I first heard of Michelle Branches most recent songs at the gym I go to the internet radio feeds had aired some of her recent songs. But I had no clue at first that it is the same person who had pop hits from 2001-2003. I thought it was a new band or a band with songs from the 1980's  that were being released today.

I used to listen to the radio a lot as a kid during the 80's. Two particular songs, "Head To Toe" and "Lost In Emotion", both by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam (from their 1987 album Spanish Fly), sounds very 50's or 60's-ish. It wasn't until later when I heard them through much better speakers than a clock radio that I realized it had a definite 80's bass drum on them.

Oh, it sounds exactly the same as the MOR shite she was cranking out in the early 2000s.

Train: Play That song. The song sounds older because Train Sampled a 1930's song called Heart and Soul.

Echosmith Lessons. This song has some late 1980's references in the song.

The first time I heard Bruno’s “Locked Out Of Heaven” I legitimately thought it was a Police song I had somehow not heard before.

No links handy, but the very new band Greta Van Fleet sounds like they came straight out of the late 1960s to mid 1970s as a cross between Led Zeppelin and Rush.

To the point the lead singer has been complaining about the comparison to Zeppelin. They border somewhere between copycat and parody of them. Of course (them being my favorite band) so did Rush on their first album.

Kingdom Come, Lenny Wolf's band which had its debut in 1988 and was one of the first four CDs I ever bought, also had many such comparisons.

Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy guitarist, had a song on one of his albums called "Led Clones" on which Ozzy Osbourne sang lead vocals.

"Got to get it on, from the still of the night."

If Moore were alive today, I figured we could have a Led Clones 2.0, maybe even with Ozzy again. Criminally underrated song, and Moore I think in general never got his due to in the hard rock/heavy metal scene.

Bruno Mars' recent hit "24K Magic" sounds straight out of the 1980s. At first I thought it was a lost Roger Troutman track

The song fits really well with electroswing and old-time animation:

Conversely, I was aware of David Lee Roth's cover of Just A Gigolo as a kid, but didn't know it was a cover.  I was blown away when I heard Jack Benny singing it on an episode of The Jack Benny Program that had to have been dated from 40 or 50 years before DLR's version.
