There’s nothing better than a little nostalgic music, right? Retrojam, a free website, generates a nice visual timeline of popular music from your childhood from just your birth date.

Once you put in the date of your birthday, the website lays out a timeline with playlists from different eras of your childhood.

Each playlist is built using Spotify, so you’re able to add the tracks from your high school year or from the year of your birth there easily for later reminiscing without using Retrojam.

Some of the recommendations I received reminded me of tracks I had totally forgotten even existed; the site basically works for any date and generates the playlists in a snap. You’ll be feeling nostalgic for the rest of the day!
