    • 10. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      RIP Kurt Cobain. What on earth is he sayin'!? I dunno, but I still like the song.
    • 9. Say My Name by Destiny's Child
      Even though I was older when tyhis song came out, I didn't understand it at first. Now that I do, I like the lyrics as well as the song. Beyonce should dump the player ASAP!! :-)
    • 8. Come On Over by Christina Aguilera
      Age again. Christina's better than Britney. All her songs are great, and she definetely has talent. This is here BEST song.
    • 7. ...Baby One More Time by Britney Spears
      Now my age starts to show. Britney isn't very good, but this song, her first hit, shows that she sorta had talent at the beginning. I'm NOT a slave 4 her though!!!!
    • 6. Beautiful Life by Ace Of Base
      Didn't discover this song til the Ace of Base greatest hits CD. Great song!
    • 5. Get The Girl by Bangles
      Bangles '99! This was a song from the 2nd Austin Powerr movie, and the Bangles first colaboration in over 10 years. GO BANGLES!!!!
    • 4. Do You Feel Like I Feel by Belinda Carlisle
      See #3. WHAT HAPPENED TO BELINDA IN THE 90'S!??! Don't know how big this song was in Britain. Probably better than the states though.
    • 3. In Too Deep by Belinda Carlisle
      Never got real popular in the states. #3 in Britain, and it deserved to be a hit here. Belinda is a great singer, and I totally respect her.
    • 2. The Sign by Ace Of Base
      I loved this song since it came out in '93. I used to think it said "I saw the sun" LOL! Ace of Base in in some ways an ABBA copy group, but they are still a great 90's band.
    • 1. My Side Of The Bed by Susanna Hoffs
      I AM A BANGLE FREAK! OK, I'm 14, yeah,yeah, SO WHAT! This is the absolute BEST song of the 90's. Susanna has a beautiful voice, and I totally wanna be her!! In other words, I am a Susanna Hoffs wannabe!

    Honorable Mention to every other song Belinda Carlisle or Susanna Hoffs recorded in the 1990's.

    • 10. Get Along With You by Kelis
      She one of the most talented persons coming into the spotlight of the last few years.
    • 9. Every Single Song by Garbage
      I love them all.
    • 8. Just A Girl by No Doubt
    • 7. I'm Afraid Of Americans by David Bowie
      He's still relevant.
    • 6. Give Me A Little More Time by Gabrielle
      This song is definitely underrated
    • 5. Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
      Great POP - yes, it's pop whether you like it or not ;-)
    • 4. Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey
      Her album "Glitter" is the best work she's done so far. I'm not one of her fans but the flop is strange. ABMB was one of her 90's highlights
    • 3. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
      THE song of the 90's
    • 2. Closer by Nine Inch Nails
      Extremely commercial but still extremely good.

    • 1. Where The Party At by Jagged Edge
