    • 1. All For Love by Color Me Badd
      This song is a definate 90's classic. this song is up there with the greats.

    i never added any alternative or rock songs because the 90's was a Decade of Dance. there were some great 90's rock songs and some alternative tunes as well. but i thought to make the list authentic i'd add pop music.
