I Love The 90s

Wanna know something kinda funny about me? I know about 98% of all music that came out of the 80s and 90s. The only person who I think might know more would be Mike Lowe, who not only knows the songs, but the words to all of them too. But I'm a pretty close second.

I attribute it to my steady diet of watching MTV all day long growing up, back when it was mostly music videos. I was pretty much a latchkey child growing up, so I'm quite amazed that I have turned out as well as I have. Anyhow, with that upbringing comes a very broad knowledge of popular music. I'm well versed in all of pop music, including anything easy listening, but I also have good depth in glam rock, rap (including gangsta rap), hip hop, and all rock and alternative.

Last week a friend of mine came across a Brandy song, which she shared with me, which in turn prompted a meander down my own musical memory lane of 90s female hip hop. Walk with me, won't you?

I kind of loved TLC - What About Your Friends, Creep, etc. I think I liked the older stuff more than Scrubs and Waterfalls, although Scrubs was a BYU freshman year anthem.
This one is a little more obscure, but I kind of loved this song. Listening to it prompted me to listen to MJ the last few days.



This one might be even more obscure, but I'm still fond of it.



And the song that inspired this stroll:

i love early 90s music. those were all great. i remember when we finally got mtv, i was probably in the 8th grade and we wanted to watch it ALL DAY LONG. it is too bad they never show videos anymore.

I have a soft spot in my heart for 90s music...how I love it! I turned on the radio last night and heard No Scrub, and then had no one to share it with because it was 1:30am. It brought me such great joy.
