The 20th century is truly like no other. These hundred years changed and defined society as we know it today, at a speed never seen before. Not only did musical styles transform greatly in accordance with the ever-changing trends and burning social matters, during the 20th-century music became more accessible than ever before. The invention of the gramophone in 1892 and then radio broadcasting in 1920 made music an inseparable part of the lives of people from all walks of life.
Such a tumultuous and packed century is, of course, impossible to cram into one playlist. We did, however, do our best to compile the most unforgettable musical highlights of the 20th century. Enjoy!
