Tunesdays Volume 2: Throwbacks
Before you comment on the fact that some of these songs are from the 90s or early 2000s, lets remember that 15 to 25 years has passed since then, so in my world, that constitutes a throwback.
Check out these beauties. If you don't already, you're going to LOVE them!
No Diggity by Blackstreet (1996)
I heard someone sing an acoustic version of this one at an open mic night a few years ago and the performance took the song to a whole new level. Maybe it’s a guilty pleasure but it gets me grooving, you know?
Beautiful Dreamers by Grant-Lee Phillips (2001)
Grant-Lee Phillips is a singer-songwriter who you may recognize as the town troubadour in Gilmore Girls. His work is a little folk, a little 90s and a lot of awesome. His albums are a perfect backdrop for a Saturday morning housework session or simply enjoying with a good cup of joe.
Fishin’ in the Dark by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (1987)
If you ever find yourself unexpectedly surrounded by my family (it happens) and are looking for a way to connect with them, bust out the Fireball Whisky and play this song. The equation is that simple. Fireball + Fishin’ in the Dark = instant party. You can thank me later.
Forever in Blue Jeans by Neil Diamond (1978)
Childhood road trips to various campgrounds usually started off with Neil Diamond or Don Williams. Forever in Blue Jeans has to be one of my absolute favourite songs of all time. The lyrics really remind you to appreciate the simple things in life; something we don’t do enough these days. Just listen to it, you’ll love it.
Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac (1977)
It’s not surprising that Fleetwood Mac makes this list. Rumors is one of my favourite albums and with its upbeat sound, this song is a great throwback to the 70s.
