      A very sweet song.

      Very fab. An infectious tune.
    • 8. Don't Speak by No Doubt
      Great song from one of the best bands in the 90s.
    • 7. Black Or White by Michael Jackson
      The king of pop stakes his claim with this ground-breaking song.

      Nice easy rock by a great band.

      The catchiest fad song of the 90s.

      Good, clean, rap...

      No more needs to be said...a classic.

      Started the revival of bubblegum pop, with its freshness and energy.

    • 10. Shimmer by Fuel
      All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade. What could be more true than these lyrics??
    • 9. Your Woman by Whitetown
      A bizzare but really great song!
    • 8. Pieces Of You by Jewel
      One of jewels less famous songs, which i recommend to anyone, for the simple fact that it lets you see that sometimes the reason you hate other people is because you see yourself in them.
    • 7. Wonderwall by Oasis
      By far the groups best song. Maybe if the band wasnt so screwed up, people would have seen through beyond all the fights, and seen some beautiful lyric, in magical well played songs.
    • 6. Red Hot Chilli Peppers by Under The Bridge
      wonderfull thought provoking song
    • 5. Your Winter by Sister Hazel
      Off the ten things I hate about you soundtrack. Sweet song!
    • 4. Angel by Romeo and Juilet Soundtrack
      A beautiful song from THE MOST AWESOME SOUNDTRACK EVER!
    • 3. Are You Strong Enough To Be My Man by Sheryl Crow
      One of the only love songs of the ninetys that managed to escape being tacky. A really nice tune that helps you think things through.
    • 2. Hands by Jewel
      A song everyone knows at least the first few lines of. We can all take something from this songs lyrics. Im not sure if it was early 2000 or 99' but all of Jewel's songs are extreamly credible and meaningful.
    • 1. Lightning Crashes by Live
      Great band...THE greatest song. One of few songs that managed to have meaning and remain modern and popular in the 90's.

    Some great music was around in the 90's. I recommend any music to anyone, it evokes feeling moreso than anything else, and its effects are amazing on the human mind.
