So sit back and relax while we take you through our time capsule of the top forgotten 90s hits.
This breakthrough song reminded us all that MC Hammer was just too cool for school, not only did this song break charts but it started new fashion and beauty styles. Such as the Harem pants. Admit it, you know you kind of want a pair now.
Poison was one of the more creative and imaginative figures to come out of the “new jack swing” genre of music that took over the 90s. The smooth beat and raw lyrics captured audiences and made this song an instant 90s anthem.
Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch “Good Vibrations” 1991
Although this song was incredibly popular for its time, it’s often seen as one of the top forgotten 90s hits. Recently, it’s been brought back into the spotlight in various movies and song remixes. Nothing got a party started quite like this song.
Blackstreet came out during the time when boy bands were all the rage. Along with The Backstreet Boys, Nsync, and 98 Degrees, these guys where the champions. Although One Direction seems to be bringing back the good old days of boy bands.
Before the Jonas Brothers, there were the Hansons, and although you may not want to admit it now, this song was one of the best top forgotten 90s hits you secretly bust a move to. It’s okay guys, no judgement here.
This is the song you listen to when you want to kick back and relax. We’re talking about those road trips you have with your friends when you want to take a cruise down memory lane of the 90s. Many people often forget this song when they remember those amazing 90s hits, but not to worry, that’s why we’re here to jog your memory!
Whenever we hear this song all we can think about is the prom dance scene from the movie She’s All That, another classic 90s hit. Even if this song played now we can’t imagine anyone not hitting the dance floor and reliving their youth, shouting to anyone who will listen: “OMG I used to love this song”!
This song was apart of the electro-pop genre that was taking over the late 90s. This is a style that seems to be making it’s way back into the music industry today, with artists like Sia and Chromeo taking centre stage. This may just be a guilty pleasure for us, because we can’t help but put it on repeat whenever it comes on.
Now we’re getting into the late 90s, when it was all about the attitude, and who had it better than the girl bands? No Scrubs was the ladies anthem of 1999. For awhile there, we considered every boy to be a scrub and may have gone as far as to rap the lyrics to them. No, we don’t want your number and no, we don’t want to give your ours.
This song turned Ricky Martin into a sex symbol of the 90s. We all just wanted to live in La Vida Loca with him. Ricky Martin was the staple for a 90s artist: frosted tips, tight leather pants, girls in belly tops, and bad dance moves. Did we miss anything?
Ending off our list is the original summertime song for us 90s enthusiasts. Nothing beats listening to LEN while laying by the pool with a glass of sangria in hand. Except, maybe listening to another list of top forgotten 90s hits.
