There isn’t a decade that I love more than the 90s. To be fair though, I am a child of the 90s. I lived and breathed the TV, music, movies and fads that went along with it.
Recently I found this twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/90sgirlproblem) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/90sgirlproblem) called 90s Girl Problems that has provided an endless source of entertainment and nostalgia. They post commercials of toys and games back then, along with clips of movies and TV shows. My favourite part of it all though are the tweets. One of my favourites so far has beenMy favourite part of it all though are the tweets. One of my favourites so far has been “I like Backstreet Boys. My best friend likes N*SYNC. Scratch that. We’re no longer friends.” I was/am a Backstreet Boys fan, more so than N*SYNC, so I thought it was a pretty funny.
A few days ago they posted a quiz on 90s music and I just had to do it to see where I was with 90s music and of course I got “Congrats, you’re a 90s nerd!” I couldn’t have asked for a better honour. If you want to try out the quiz, the link is below.
Listening to the song clips got me thinking about some of the songs that remind me of the 90s, so I wanted to share some songs that epitomized the 90s for me.
No Doubt – Don’t Speak
This is my ultimate favourite song ever and of course it’s from the 90s. I remember first watching this video when it was on YTV’s the Hit List with Tarzan Dan.
Alanis Morissette – Ironic
Who doesn’t remember this song always on the radio? And everyone saying how nothing she sings about is ironic. When it came out, I think I was too young to actually know what irony was, but regardless it’s great 90s song.
Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It
Don’t pretend like you don’t know all the words to this song.
Hanson – MMMBop
Probably one of the most ridiculous songs of the 90s (lyrics wise), but incredibly catchy. Who knew that a bunch of brothers that looked like girls would be so big?
Third Eye Blind – Semi Charmed Life
Just an overall great sing-out-loud song. In fact I totally remember singing this out loud with my sister and cousins when we were younger whenever it was on the radio. And keeping your finger on record the whole time you were listening to the radio so you could get a copy on your mixed tape. Oh those were the days!
Those are a few of the memorable songs for me. What songs remind you of the 90s?
And I am loving this 90s throwback, so I think I’ll be doing a few more 90s posts in the future.
