Sir Paul McCartney has made history by becoming the oldest star to ever headline Glastonbury and did it in front of a MASSIVE crowd.

He's not the only 'vintage' star smashing it right now - your grandparents' old faves are everywhere.

Singer Kate Bush has topped the UK charts with a song released way back in 1985! The song, Running Up That Hill, was made popular again recently when it was featured on Netflix show Stranger Things and was picked up by people on TikTok.

She has broken the record for the longest time between number ones as it has been 44 years since her first song, Wuthering Heights, topped the charts.

There are plenty of other examples of vintage legends who're back in the charts and on radio and TV right now and we want to know if there are any other stars from the past that YOU enjoy.

If so, how did you get into their music? Maybe your mum or dad played their music for you or you heard it in a film or on TV. Take part in our vote and Let us know in the comments.
