Let me preface this by saying English isn't my first language.
There was a comment by an user on facebook today that went like "This reminds me of the 90's", but the user was born in 94 so my friend said "how can something remind you of something that you haven't personaly experienced or have no memory of".
My explanation was that we can learn about the 90's via books, movies, music etc and create our own idea of those times and then get reminded of them when we hear similar new music released 20, 30 years later.
Can we use the word "remind/reminded" in such way or is there any other synonym to be used in situations like this?
Should it be "this made me think of"?
