A few of my favourite songs from the ’90s

I wanna scream, I wanna jump for joy
And I want everyone to know
I wanna scream, I wanna jump for joy
I gotta let the whole world know

2 Unlimited – Jump For Joy
I really couldn’t choose a favourite song as I like all of them, so I randomly picked ‘Jump For Joy’ to put on here. I`m probably the biggest 2 Unlimited fan in history and I am pretty sure that I can sing along all their songs. I used to listen to their music every day, all day and on repeat. Not kidding. I remember the day when the news came out that Anita and Ray wouldn’t longer continue with 2 Unlimited and I was seriously very,very upset.

Like the crack of the whip, I snap attack
Front to back in this thing called rap
Dig it like a shovel, rhyme Devil on a Heavenly level
Bang the bass, turn up the treble

SNAP! – The Power
Ahh, the sound of my childhood. I was only a one-year-old when this song came out, but it definitely captures a big part of.. well I was going to write my childhood, but to say the 90’s is more fair I think.

Macarena, Macarena, Macarena
Que le gusta los veranos de Marbella
Macarena, Macarena, Macarena
Que le gusta la movida guerrilera

Los del Rio – Macarena
Even though I couldn’t understand a single word (and I still don’t), this Spanish dance song was a long time favourite. I loved it. I love it. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t? Of course it was mainly about the dance and even with my non existent sense of rhythm I’m still pretty good at dancing the Macarena. And I’m sure all of us ’90s kids can dance it with me.

Boom boom boom boom
I want you in my room
Let’s spend the night together
From now until forever

Vengaboys – Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom
I loved this song. I do wonder however, if my parents understood the lyrics..

Jump up and down and move it all around
Shake your head to the sound, put your hands on the ground
Take one step left and one step right
One to the front and one to the side

Lou Bega – Mambo No. 5
Well.. this was neither really very suitable song for a girl of my age in the ’90s, haha. This song was really a hit in my last year of elementary school and I had my first real crush at that time as well. So when we were on school camp and we needed to performance something on the last night, me and my friends choose to do a dance on ‘Mambo No. 5’. We borrowed some clothes of the boys and lucky me was wearing the t-shirt of my crush. I was really trying to impress him as well, but he was totally in love with another girl. And even after my great performance he still wasn’t interested in me. Well, to bad for him because I`m sure that we would have made a great couple back then. Oh boy, I’m really getting old.

‘Cause I’m just a girl, a little ‘ol me
Well don’t let me out of your sight
Oh I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights

No Doubt – Just A Girl
I actually still am a huge fan of Gwen Stefani and looking back at this clip I wonder if she is a vampire, she hasn’t aged at all.

Running to the railroad track
Run along with Captain Jack
Run into the peacecamp back
Run along with Captain Jack

Captain Jack – Captain Jack
Another great song with great memories. And another dance performance I did with the same friends in elementary school. We dressed up with military clothing from our dads and neighbours. I guess it was really our thing, haha.

Captain Jack – Captain Jack

Spice Girls – Wannabe
I was obsessed with the Spice Girls and I wanted to be all of them. I dressed up as Emma for Carnival and was extremely upset when one of my best friends was a better Emma than I was, haha. I also found out that Santa Claus doesn’t exist because my dad had their cd lying in the back of the car as a present for Christmas and I was just a little bit too smart about it. They should reunite.

It was really, really hard to put this post together. I could hardly choose my favourites, I honestly could go on and on, so I just picked a few of them. And I’m sure I miss out on a few of them. I`m also sure that if you would ask me to make a top ten I won`t be able to do that! We had the best music growing up in the ’90s and every song comes with so many good memories. What are a few of your favourite songs from the ’90s?
