Tubular Tuesdays Music Linkup #2 {*90s!!}

Welcome to our link up! Um – hows about this is the HARDEST week to pick songs from. Jen was not kidding when she mentioned her & I were the hugest boy band fans ever. I will try to not make this post ridiculous — but I would like to point out some lesser known boy bands at the end. Test your knowledge! ;-)

The 90s were totally awesome. I still pretty much only listen to 90s music. Sister Hazel, Third Eye Blind, Goo Goo Dolls, The Cure… a lot of my favorites had their best hits in the 90s. On the same note, a lot of the bands I like were *only* popular in the 90s. Sigh. Maybe I just like bad music? You can be the judge of that.

My 90s LIST!

The first CD that I ever purchased with my own money was Green Day’s Dookie. I was like 9 years old. It was from Target. I’ll never forget that!

Major girl crush time. I frickin’ loved Aaliyah. I remember getting her first album when I was in about 5th grade and playing it OVER. And OVER. And over again. This was the first song that I knew of hers. RIP. She was so beautiful.

I was really into r&b and ROCK when I was younger. My list is going to be all over the place before we get into boy band time.

I had this on CD *single.* I remember when that was the only way to really get music. I was too poor {since I was a kid!} to buy CDs so I would use my $1s to get CD singles from WalMart!

I’m pretty sure I watched this video ONE MILLION times in the 6th grade.

*Side Note: I totally LOVED Monica and Brandy during this time too. I don’t think they’re worthy of being included on this list, but I just remember really liking them. :-)

I’m pretty sure that I still freak out when I hear this in a club. Favorite song of all time.

I still adore Sister Hazel. I think I’ve seen them in concert… five times? Maybe six? I’ve lost count.

And then… 1998 happened. Everything changed. In order to not be too annoying — I’ll only pick a few things here and save the rest of the embarrassing musical interests for next weeks 2000s post!

I mean I could tell you the first time I SAW Nsync on TV. The Disney Channel concert special. Shiny blue pants. If you know what I’m talking about — you’re cool. Or uncool. Whatever.

Total cheese. See below. I feel so old and creepy. Justin was SO YOUNG here. Just watch. Their choreography is too amazing for words. Thrusts, flips, jumps. Wow.

I waited in line for hours to get Jordan Knight to sign his CD single. He wouldn’t hug me but he had on baby blue sunglasses. Douche.

And, last but certainly not least, I gotta have my girl Britney on this list.

Side Note: Sometimes I wonder why I was attracted to men who could do complicated choreography.

Can’t have a 90s post without mentioning…
Third Eye Blind
Goo Goo Dolls
Hero — Mariah Carey
Macarena — Los Del Rio
The Moffatts

Get your posts scheduled and we can’t wait to see what you come up with! :) Hopefully we will get our iTunes full of new music — or “new” to us at least!

EDITED TO ADD: Um, how did I forget about the Spice Girls? I’m pretty sure that I was obsessed with them… like in college. When they weren’t popular. Someone stole my Spice World DVD and I was livid. Anyway, Spice Girls is totally on this list.

    Your videos are coming up as ads for me….
    Anyways, I finally remembered and was able to do it!! I don’t believe I forgot 3eb. Ugg. They were my favorite in 5th-7th grade. Ohh well. There were way too many to list!

  3. says

    awesome – I can’t believe I forgot Brittney – this is harder than I thought it would be! Britt-Britt was my absolute favorite!
    That being said, I also forgot BBD – such shame that I left them off. 90’s were great, though I never got into the boy bands, guess I was too cool or something?

    SUCH FUN songs!! I loooved PDiddy all through 8th grade. And I used to think that Jordan Knight song was sooo nasty, hahah! Sister Hazel got my BFF and I through some “hard” times in freshman year ;-)

    Oh wow, great list! I don’t know if I would be able to narrow mine down…I LOVED the 90’s! I think I would have to include Alanis in my list…I think that was the 90’s?
