Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer, and a time to look forward to warm weather, cook-outs, days at the beach and cutting out of work early on Fridays. But Memorial Day is a holiday of remembrance, so it's also a chance to reflect on the past. In honor of this transitional weekend, we've created a playlist of 20 nostalgia-themed songs – including tributes to flings from Pulp, the Four Seasons, Michael Jackson, LaBelle and the Cure, memories of bygone eras from Bryan Adams and Smashing Pumpkins, a look back at the golden age of hip-hop from Del the Funky Homosapien and more. Listen on Spotify, fire up the barbecue and think of the good times.
