    By: Ashlee-Pooh
    • 10. Candle In the Wind by Elton John
      In memory of Princess Diana I think that this song DEFINATELY needs to be on the top 10 songs of the 90's!
    • 9. Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio
      I dunno why but this song really sticks out in my mind... perhaps because at every dance I ever went to as a young kid they always played it? Or maybe it's because of the parody they made of it... I dunno but it's a wicked cool song.
    • 8. Hand In My Pocket by Alanis Morissette
      I can still remember copying the lyrics by hand for my best friend... it was one of my faves WAAAAAAAAAY back when...
    • 7. The Dance by Garth Brooks
      Awww this is such an awesome song and I just think that it's one of the best ever made... especially by Garth Brooks!
    • 6. Time Of Your Life by Green Day
      This was the very first CD I ever got and this is my fave Green Day song ever... it sums up the 90's pretty well for me :)
    • 5. Tearin' Up my Heart by *N Sync
      I never knew who *N Sync was until over a year after this song came out... *N Sync have been a HUGE band and came out in the 90's so this song should be on the list... it's my fave.
    • 4. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      This sticks out in my mind since I can remember singing it soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much and I still sing it...
    • 3. Sold by John Michael Montgomery
      We always used to sing this in Elementary school so it's just a sentimental song for me.
    • 2. I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys
      My all time favorite Backstreet Boys song, it deserves to be on this list since BSB changed the Pop scene.
    • 1. My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion
      This is the song that really made her famous and Titanic was in theatres how long?! It's like one of the songs of the century!!

    All songs that were released in the 90's have all made a difference to somebody... everyone doesn't like the same thing and I think all songs are great :)
