I was born in the mid-to-late 90’s, but I remember some 2005 songs; I don’t really know any “popular” songs before 2005 besides the Kelly Clarkson and clean editions of Black Eyed Peas and Rihanna songs played on Radio Disney. I wasn’t an active listener of music until 2005 so I can’t say anything before then is my “childhood,” but I obviously know what songs played before 2005. I do like some songs from 2005 - 2007, however the time period of music in mylife time that I related to was music from 2008-2013 along with a few songs from 2014 to 2016; by 2014 I was no longer “with it” and no longer cared about popular mainstream music or even the celebrities who are famous today. Its funny because when I was 11 I swore that I would listen to mainstream music for the rest of my life.
Looking back, not all of the songs from 2008-2013 were great and I have moved on to 80’s and 90’s techno, house and trance along with New Wave and Latin Rock music which Is the genre of music that I swore I would never listen to when i was like 12. lol
