The complete compilation of songs I’m embarrassed I know all of the words to… a decade later. For the first 18 pop songs you forgot existed click here.
1. The Hardest Thing – 98°
More soulful than BSB with less spastic dancing than N*Sync, 98° was legitimately the perfect boy band.
2. Viva Forever – Spice Girls
Unfortunately, this music video is almost as dumb as their West End show by the same name (a.k.a. £42 and 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back).
3. I Knew I Loved You – Savage Garden
Apparently you can meet your soul mate on public transportation. Forget OkCupid, buy a bus pass. Thanks, Savage Garden.
4. Bailamos – Enrique Iglesias
I have no shame in admitting that this song is the only way I knew how to conjugate the first person plural verbs in middle school Spanish.
5. Faded – soulDecision
I don’t know…I just suddenly have the urge buy me some mace.
6. Torn – Natalie Imbruglia
Hands down, my favorite song of the 90s.
7. I Wanna Be Bad – Willa Ford
Really, it’s hard not to love a song with such deep and meaningful lyrics.
8. Juliet – LMNT (pronounced “element” — cool, right?)
“Hey, I’ve been watching you.” = The most underrated pick-up line. Ever.
9. If You’re Not the One – Daniel Bedingfield
I think it’s great that he’s basically serenading himself with a love song for four minutes.
10. Same Ol’ Same Ol’ – PYT
Okay, so they definitely disappeared.
11. Everywhere – Michelle Branch
This song was featured in the Lizzie McGuire episode when Lizzie got her first kiss (as if you needed any other reason to love it).
12. I Do (Cherish You) – 98°
Don’t you just feel all warm and fuzzy now?
13. Crush – Mandy Moore
Well, I’d say this accurately sums up 6th through 12th grade for every girl in America.
14. Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer
Bonus points for being on the She’s All That soundtrack #90sOn90s
15. Get Over Yourself – Eden’s Crush
I know what you’re thinking. And yes, that is Nicole Scherzinger.
16. Never Had A Dream Come True – S Club 7
S Club 7, they just really get life.
