The ’90s were the best decade of all-time. Anyone who did not actually experience their formative years in the ’90s will undoubtedly disagree with this statement, but it is a scientifically proven fact.
…Okay, well, MAYBE ‘scientifically proven fact’ is a wee bit of a stretch, but still! The ’90s were a remarkable decade, filled with unforgettable music, movies, television shows and channels (MTV, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, HBO, etc.), political and celebrity scandal, and scientific breakthroughs, among countless other iconic events, trends, and fashions.
While I could ramble endlessly about all of the aspects of the ’90s I so dearly love and miss, this post will focus on the music. I started a ’90s playlist, and before I knew it I had added 330 timeless musical classics for your listening pleasure. Take a peak at this eclectic mix of tunes that are sure to shoot you straight back to an easier time when the only thing you worried about was getting home in time to catch TRL (Total Request Live) in its entirety.
No one did Girl Power better than the women of the ’90s:
No one rocked harder than the rockers of the ’90s:
No one did sex better than the sexy crooners of the ’90s (I don’t care if you’re male, female, gay, straight, bi– it doesn’t matter. If D’Angelo doesn’t make you feel something in your baby maker when watching the video for “Untitled: How Does It Feel”, have someone check your pulse immediately):
No one popped harder than the pop stars of the ’90s:
No one did R&B or hip hop better than the rhythmic artists of the ’90s:
’90s country music is the only country music these ears of mine can stomach:
And, the final nail in the coffin of this silly argument, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the ’90s were the best decade, I present to you: ’90s Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston.
I rest my case.
The entire playlist is below. We hope you enjoy, and let us know if we missed anything!
