These Are The Best Songs That Came Out The Year You Were Born

music-lead

Everyone has a certain song that reminds them of when they were young.
 
The one stand out song of when I was little is Whigfield – “Saturday Night” – and I can remember running around and dancing to it like a kid possessed.
 

 
But what are the best songs of each year?
 
It’s a tough list to come up with, but the people at Business Insider have had a good go.
 
They looked at Billboard’s year-end number-one pop and R&B singles since 1965 along with their Hot 100 list to put together the top singles of the past 50 years.
 
Enjoy.
