The 90′s was such a glorious decade. My youngest sister was born in the 90′s. I started junior high and became a social leper in the 90′s. I came home past curfew and got into trouble with my parents in the 90′s. I went through a phase where I wore pirate-y outfits and had a lesbian haircut in the 90′s. I was a ridiculously moody teenager for a better part of the 90′s.
“So Jen, it’s really great that you love the 90′s, and that you enjoy looking like a pirate, but can you get to the point of this Music Monday post already?”
You guys are so impatient.
Something else that really stood out about that decade was the music. If the names Babyface, TLC, Janet Jackson or Boyz II Men mean anything to you, you’ll want to keep reading. If not, you better educate yourself. No, I’m not kidding. Go to a library and read a book or something.
I may be really late to the party on this one, but I recently discovered the site MixCloud. From what I can tell, it’s a place where users can generate playlists, and put them up on the site for people to stream on-demand. I’ve found a ton of great ones there, and the site is worth checking out for any of you music lovers out there.
My favorite, favorite, FAVORITE mix by far is by someone named DJ Kasio Smashio. It’s a tribute to female 90′s R&B singers, and I swear she included every single one of my favorite songs from that time period. Have a listen:
I would have just embedded it, but WordPress was being a big, fat embed blocker last night so I had to hyperlink it. Sorry, guys. *shakes fist at WordPress*
So, what is your favorite song from the 90′s?
