Common characteristics of an anachronistic song, usually the song having been out at least a few decades ago:
- It includes a term that was popular or a norm in a particular era "long ago".
- It includes a term that the definition has shifted over time.
- It is more likely now to be considered culturally or politically insensitive than in the past.
- It contains reference to a year number.
