When a song is released some people think it will only be relevant for that period of time but they are wrong. As time progresses it could make a song bigger than what it was when it originally came out. These ten songs are a part of that group of decade-defining songs that are still played in homes today. It was hard to pick the select few because there are so many songs from each decade that bring back good and sometimes even bad memories to listeners. We here at the BlueXpress hope that the listeners enjoy the picks and if anyone has any ideas or song recommendations for a future playlist come by room 449 or just tell BlueXpress Staff members Emily Keller or Anna Fox.
