You’re Tearin’ Up My Heart
Time and time again, I’ve expressed how much I miss 90’s television, jelly shoes, and cassette tapes. Wait. Scratch that last part. I really don’t miss cassette tapes. The one thing we never reminisced about was the music. Yes, the music. Days filled with boy bands, bubble gum pop, grunge, and rock. Yeah, good times. Good times. It was a time when it was acceptable, no, required for you to have your favorite band’s posters covered on your walls from floor to ceiling (I plead guilty to this one. I just wish I took pictures). It was a time when you made your mom drive you to your local Target store before school, just so you could get that new Nsync album, even though you couldn’t listen to it until you got home (Guilty. Again). While I can’t complain about the quality of music today, in fact I truly can’t. It’s cool (I’m using appropriate 90’s slang here). There is something about scrolling your iPod touch for a piece of popular music, then discovering a song you haven’t heard in the longest time. Maybe it’s Mr. Jones by the Counting Crows, or My Heart Will Go On from Titanic (That song played on repeat for about a year), or maybe even that classic that was perfect for every single nostalgia video ever made in the 90’s, Time of Your Life by Green Day. No matter what song, artist, or boy band it was, I know that you know, there is that part of you that just wants to rock it out and confess your love for even the most taboo of songs or bands. That’s right. I’m talking about . . .
NSYNC: Tearin’ Up My Heart
Justin, Joey, Chris, Lance, & J.C. Best boy band ever. No doubt about it. Seriously, don’t doubt it. It’s true. Hey, when is that reunion gonna happen, anyway?
No Doubt: Don’t Speak
What song – no. What band could have been more influential in the 90’s? Huh? Yeah, Nirvana. But if you were a pop princess like me, you’d know that the greatest song of the 90’s was Don’t Speak. It was everywhere!
Oh, Hanson. I do love thee still. You have stood the test of time. Yeah. I said it. I. Love. Hanson. What? I have one question, though. What the hell were you saying in this video?
Ace of Base: The Sign
Even Stephanie Tanner couldn’t resist the cool sound of Ace of Base. Remember when she started a band and they sang this song? Yeah. Good times.
What is your favorite song, band, or artist of the 90’s? Love Nsync? Do you miss 90’s music? Tell me in the comments!
