90's baby // Playlist

I love everything about the 90's.Everybody reminisces about their childhood,and I think there was something really special about that time.I was born in 1991 so I got to experience lots of the fashion,entertainment and music.I grew up listening to a lot of ballads (so much Celine Dion and Whitney Houston-thanks Mum!) but being a child my musical tastes changed by the hour.I still love listening to my old favourites so I thought I'd share them with you!

Travis :- Why does it always rain on me? (1999)

Does anyone know what happened to Travis? They had some great songs in the 90's including this one and Driftwood.I always though they seemed a little depressing,"Oh where did the blue skys go/And why is it raining so?",but I it's a very chilled song with a lovely melody.It's a shame they didn't release more.

Jennifer Page :- Crush (1998)

I didn't really understand this song at 9 years old but I love (and still do) how easy it is to listen to.I remember it being played constantly on the radio and I loved to join in with the "sha la la la" part.

The Wannadies :- Me & You song (1994)

Yet another 90's band that seems to have disappeared off the face of the Earth! This is such a feel good song,it's definitely one for those long summer days.The lyrics are really simple and easy to follow too,which i loved as a kid.

Oasis:- Wonderwall (1995)

I love this song so much I had it as the first dance at the wedding! It's such an iconic song and the words are so beautiful.It's sung by Liam Gallagher on the main version but there are some acoustic recordings of Noel singing it that are amazing.Oasis is my hubby's favourite band so I've been getting into them more now that I can appreciate them as an adult.

Spice Girls-Wannabe (1996)

Everybody and their Mum loved Spice Girls back in the 90's (and most still do!) This was one of the anthems of my childhood.I always wanted to be Baby Spice (my hair was always in bunches) and I would parade around the house proclaiming "if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends" which looking back was a bit dubious! The lyrics are really catchy and it definitely gets in your head.Remember The Spice Girls Movie?

Chumbawumba :- Tubthumping (1997)

With a band name like Chumbawumba you can expect something completely different! It's really easy to sing along to as most of the lyrics are "I get knocked down,but I get up again,you're never gonna keep me down".I remember this being played at parties all the time as a kid,and all of the adults who'd had a few too many would start chanting this!

I have so many favourite songs from the 90's that it would take me forever to list them.I'd love some recommendations though,so what are your top picks from the decade?


  1. Thanks for the blast from the past. I love a bit of Aswad's Shine in the summer, in fact I remember the 90s being quite good for summery reggae tunes (which is quite odd as I was also mad about grunge!) x x

  2. I had to Youtube "Ashwad Shine" to see what came up and I do remember it being played,it does have a lovely mellow feel to it.Where you a Nirvana fan then? I was a bit to young for grunge but it was popular.xx

  3. Being born in 1986, I grew up in the 1990's I went through the whole Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys thing. I think Brimful of Asha by Cornershop pretty much sums up that whole era for me. It's weird looking back now and seeing how much my music taste has changed since the 1990's - I think "pop" is the only style of music I don't listen to these days lol.

  4. I remember Brimful of Asha but I don't know how I couldn't as "everybody needs a bosom for a pillow" was hilarious to me.Completely agree,I was a big Savage Garden fan haha! x


I love to hear from every one of you! I will always respond to every comment asap xo
