Blast from the past: What your favorite ‘Sunday song’ says about you

If your parents have ever blasted their oldies playlist on Sundays and you ended up jamming to these songs later in your 20s and 30s, take a walk down memory lane and get to know what these five “Sunday songs” say about you.

“Yesterday Once More” by The Carpenters

Here’s a classic “Sunday song” that’s mostly in everyone’s playlists: “Every sha la la la la, every woah, woah, still shine.” Karen Carpenter’s flawless and soothing alto voice carries a unique weight of nostalgia that only Carpenter’s music can do unlike others.

What it says about you: Having this as your favorite song shows that you are probably a very sentimental person and constantly reminiscing about the easier and happier times. Old but gold, this song perfectly encapsulates the essence of nostalgia, as it invokes some good and fond memories back when life was light and bearable.

“Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey

If there is one rock song that everyone knows by heart, it would be Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” It’s an empowering song that is an absolute headbanger. The first few notes send listeners into a frenzy and screaming at the top of their lungs for that “small-town girl living in a lonely world.”

What it says about you: This song rings true and hard to those of you who are always living in the moment in which your infectious energy and optimism are hard to go unnoticed.

“How Deep is Your Love” by The Bee Gees

Get into the Sunday feels with this Bee Gees hit that has proven to have stood the test of time. Since its release in 1977, “How Deep is Your Love” has captivated its listeners with its unique and utterly distinct sound that no other song has been able to emulate.

What it says about you: It is an ode to those who love deeply and immensely but not sure whether it’s equally reciprocated — clinging to hope that somehow the person that you love feels the same way.

“Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns N’ Roses

This is the ultimate dad track that you’ve probably never thought of much as a child but now happens to be one of your go-to, head-banger songs. With an addicting guitar riff and a killer beat, it takes so much in you not to jam hard to one of Guns N’ Roses’ biggest hits.

What it says about you: If you are close to either your dad or one of your uncles, chances are you are largely connected to the song due to the large appeal it has on them.

“I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston

A feel-good tune with an unmissable beat, having “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” as one of your favorite songs, is all we need to know that you’re always up for a good time.

What it says about you: You’re the life of the party when you immediately dance and jam to this disco classic sung by the ever-iconic Whitney.
