For me, nothing brings about more childhood nostalgia than listening to summer oldies that my parents used to play on their old stereo. It can be quite liberating to forget all the Top 40 hits on the radio, and just listen to older tunes from a simpler time. Whether you want to relive summer memories through music, or just escape to a different time era, these vivacious oldies will be sure to keep you jiving all summer long!

All the music posted can be purchased on Amazon or iTunes.
