Japanese translation:古い曲 対 古い音楽
Explanation:
I think "oldies" would be the individual songs and "oldie music" would be the "genre" (if you'd call it a genre). I think in most cases oldie/oldies could be used and would be a more natural way of phrasing it.
E.g. That song is an oldie, but a goodie. This station plays the oldies from nine to twelve.
