Nostalgia is hella big right now. The #nineties is now an adjective used to describe outfits, 10-year-olds know lines from Saved By The Bell and clubs are full of gurners in bucket hats gyrating on girls to Blackstreet. Even if you've never watched Nickelodeon, you know Kel loves Orange Soda.
Nostalgia is popular because it lets you regress to a time when you didn't know about stuff like tax returns and broken hearts. An immature escapist's answer to drinking alone. If you whack on Aqua, you'll forget that it's all been downhill since you first bought the Barbie Girl single.
But so what. Sure, you got dumped for someone who looks like an au-pair - but you and your housemate still know all the words to the surprisingly lengthy 'Say My Name'. Cheer up you goof!
Whether you were a brat bought up on Backstreet Boys and the Titanic soundtrack, or when you think about kicking it old school you mean 1972, you should probably tune into the Nostalgia Machine, a clever device designed to tell you what was the jam of yore.
Pick a year, any year, and it will take you on a trip down memory lane back to a more simple time when everything wasn't disappointing. You can access it here.
