Music is the perfect catalyst to transport us back to a certain time and place thanks to the memories that we associate with a particular song. With the SunLife Jukebox we take a look at music through the years and round up our highlights from each decade.
We’ve included our top five songs, so make sure you take a look and see if your favourite song or artist is mentioned. Perhaps you feel you were born in the wrong era, and find that 70’s folk music and the summer of love calls your name, or you wish you could re-live your teen years all over again and dance through the 80’s one moonwalking backslide at a time.
Some of these songs have certainly stood the test of time. We’d even go as far as saying they don’t make them like they used to!
