Old but gold!

I think it’s best for us to relax and reflect on our good old memories. And there is no better way to trigger those thoughts than music! Hope these goodies will help you remember some happy times and keep you positive!
“Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)” by Air Supply
Air supply is one of the best classic bands of all time, no doubt. They may just be the best. Most of their songs are worthy of this list, but to me “Here I Am” is their best. This classic love song is often confused with the band’s other hit song “The One That You Love.” This is all because the latter’s lyrics include the phrase “here I am”—the title of the former song.
The piano intro of this song will definitely make you feel in love, especially this: “Here I am, playing with those memories again. And just when I thought time had set me free. Those thoughts of you keep taunting me.” If you ever miss someone, and feel like listening to some soft rock music, this song should be in your playlist.
“It’s Gonna Make Sense” by MLTR
MLTR simply stands for Michael Learns to Rock. Now that’s better! This song talks about life and the challenges within, and how there’s hope in every challenge that we face. The song’s overall tone and musical progress are absolutely uplifting. The mood starts slightly miserable, and then it progresses to an inspiringly promising one.
What’s great about this song is that many of its lyrics can be used as encouraging quotes. Just like this part: “Every choice you make when you’re lost, every step you take has its cause.” And this one too: “After you clear your eyes, you’ll see the light somewhere in the darkness. After the rain has gone, you’ll feel the sun comes.” But if you know this song, it’s hard not to sing the quotes in your head.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen
Nothing really to say about this song but… the GREATEST OF ALL TIME!
“Always” by Bon Jovi
“Always” is one of the biggest classics when it comes to soft rock music. The drum and piano intro in this song is simply captivating. Not to mention the magical chorus that will make you sing out loud in an instant. That is why this song is famous—not just on the charts, but also in karaoke bars.
But what really makes this song so moving is its meaning. The song is very sentimental; it really delivers its message soulfully. It’s also quite poetic—specifically in the final part of the chorus where the lyrics are: “I’ll be there till the stars don’t shine, till the heavens burst, and the words don’t rhyme.” Truly romantic!
“How Deep Is Your Love” by the Bee Gees
If you want to start your day with a positive vibe, then try playing this song first thing in the morning. You’ll surely get groovy in no time. The vibes and lyrics of this song are perfectly in sync if you think about it. For those of you that don’t know this song—which is very unlikely—please do search and listen to it, you’ll never regret it. And for those of you that do know this banger, play it back and bring back some good ol’ memories.
Some of you may not know these songs by title, but I know for sure that you know them by ear. If these titles make you feel curious or remind you of something, then don’t hesitate. Search and listen to them! Stay safe everybody and make sure to use the power of music to brighten up your day.
