In case you didn’t think 2020 could get worse, think again. I’m about to make some of you feel old as hell.
Honestly, the intent of this post wasn’t to make anyone feel old. It was to celebrate some amazing songs that are celebrating a birthday. That birthday just happens to be 20 years old.
I didn’t realize just how old working on this post would make me feel. But damn it, I feel old as dirt. As I perused through some of the best songs from the year 2000 — listening and singing the words as if I was a pre-teen again — I realized just how long ago the year 2000 was. And I’m sure I’m not alone.
So, join me, fellow millennials and others, as we take a look at 20 songs that are turning 20 years old in 2020.
