One of the design flaws of humans is that we tend to romanticize the past. Because we tend to only focus on the good parts, the days of old can suddenly seem incredible! This is true of many aspects of life, including music. You’ll often hear people say that they wish they had been born in some past decade because the music was so much better then.

As I had mentioned in one of my previous blogs, I am a huge Disney Fan! Some of my earliest memories are of me in front of the TV dancing along with the penguins in Mary Poppins and riding on my dad’s back pretending to be Aladdin. As I got a little older, my weekends were full of cartoons like Recess, Pepper Anne, Doug, The Weekenders, etc on Disney’s One Saturday Morning. So, when my family asked if I wanted to join them in the Happiest Place On Earth over my sister’s reading week break, you all know I said yes!

There have been countless studies on the ways in which major events and discoveries such as the moon landing, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and even Watergate have influenced broader cultural trends.
