One of the greatest features of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the hourly tune. While we love all musics from the game, our favourite is 5 PM. This smooth jazz tune with a touch of 70s bass is an instant shot of good mood.
During the 80s, one of my favourite thing to do was to go to town and purchase a tape of the Hit Connection, a hit compilation released yearly in Belgium. I would then listen to it with my Walkman until the tape would eventually stay stuck in the player and I would have to purchase it again.
So, when I think about eighties music (which will remain the best music until the end of times), I always remember my tapes of the Hit Connection. That’s why, even if it isn’t based on the official compilations, my Apple Music 80s playlist is titled “Hit Connection” (yes, I’m an Apple b*tch).
While it isn’t as charming as purchasing physical editions, streaming services are much more convenient (especially in 2020). Did we trade charm for convenience? Absolutely. Have I become an old nostalgic? Don’t we all…
