Top Twenty Songs of the 90’s

medieval timesBlame it on #ThrowbackThursday, but I’m feeling nostalgic. I decided to roundup some of my favorite songs (that I can remember) from my childhood – the 1990’s.

I chose about 30 of my most beloved songs, but based my final judgement on one criterion – what songs, no matter the circumstances, would I always listen (and sing) to, never changing the channel for another song?

Answer: a mix of west coast grunge, hip hop, pre-emo emo tunes, and pop.

Fun Facts: Green Day’s album Dookie was the first CD I ever purchased, and the Backstreet Boys made the list twice because – true story – after driving to State College for their concert, I decided to apply to Penn State, and maybe I still know many of their original dance moves…
