Call them cheesy, call them loud but they surely evoke a sense of nostalgia in all of us. These songs were played at every wedding, birthday party, naming ceremony, mundan and even your pet dog’s birthday. We present to you 10 English songs that were popular in the 90s.
Backstreet Boys – “Everybody”
One of the biggest trends in music of the 90s was boy bands. And who can forget BSB who wanted it that way, in their breakout hit.
Chumbawamba – “Tubthumping”
Ever feel knocked down, wanna get up again? Listen to this song and ain’t nobody’s gonna ever keep you down!
Vengaboys – “Brazil”
This song makes us go “la la la la la la… la la la la la la …. braaaaaazeeeel”
Haddaway – “What is Love?”
- “Pyaar kya hai?”
- “Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me… no more!”
Scatman John – “I’m a Scatman”
The 90s were an era of strange explorations and experiments; one of the greatest results is the legend from El Monte, California, Scatman John.
Whigfield – “Saturday Night”
Before Rebecca Black went all “Friday, Friday”, Whigfield had already gone post the point of irritation with “Saturday Night” – one of the most overplayed songs of the 90s.
Rednex – “Cotton Eye Joe”
There were people who mixed country music and techno. Those were the days!
Ricky Martin – “Maria”
Before he became worldwide pop sensation, he broke into mainstream with what is popularly known in India as the “Un, Dos, Tres” song.
Dr. Alban – “It’s My Life!”
Till date, nobody has bothered to find out what the lyrics were or what they meant. But since Dr. Alban sounded dead serious and at the same time entertaining we were never anxious to interfere in his life.
Los Del Rio – “Macarena”
It was the first viral video/song that came 14 years before the term was even coined. And we know that you still know the dance steps.
