Ever wanted to relive the 1980s? You know, that decade defined by big hair, bigger synth and sometimes questionable fashion choices?

If so, you’re not alone. YouTube user FeelingInTheBeat has created a video that features an impressive mix of today’s top hits remastered as songs from the 80s. After all, who wouldn’t want to know what Justin Bieber, Linkin Park, Rihanna, Maroon 5 and others would have sounded like in that decade?

Consisting of 20 songs, this mix is over an hour long and could probably be played at 80s-themed parties for nostalgia purposes. Oh, and another added bonus? They’ve even Photoshopped images of some of the artists as what we can only imagine they would have looked like, and it's almost as impressive as the actual music.

For those skimming through, recommendations include Calvin Harris and Rihanna's This is What You Came For at 0:01, I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd at 10:03, Faded by Alan Walker at 35:31, Linkin Park's Numb at 32:48, and Coldplay's Hymn For The Weekend at 39:32.

Give it a watch and listen below:
