Songs You Used To Love couldn’t possibly be simpler: The site posts one excellent song a day and invites you to guess what you’re hearing. It’s an online “Name That Tune” — except in this case, the tunes themselves are fantastic, and guessing correctly is its own reward.
Today’s song could be Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.” It could be the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” Or Technotronic’s “Pump Up the Jam.” (As it happens, today’s song is Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.”) Occasionally, a selection fails to hit its mark. (Wham!? No thanks.) But the clinkers are few and far between, and the site even takes requests. Did somebody say “Free Bird”?
