Ahh the 90s – with its berry lips, choker chains, and crop tops. It was a decade for questionable trends that seem to be making a big come back. Along with its inescapable fashion trends, the 90s was also an era for questionable music thanks to the rise of boy bands and the fact that almost every single genre of music was producing singles, if not entire albums, that seemed to appeal to everyone. It wasn’t uncommon to find the top 100 hits a menagerie of grunge, gangsta rap, and mall-pop. As cringeworthy as some (read: many) of those songs may be today its inevitable that you will find yourself belting them out at the top of your lungs, hairbrush in hand, scrunchy in hair whenever they happen across your playlist – however intentional that may be.
90s Songs We Can’t Stop Singing
Britney Spears, “Sometimes”
Now most people would expect to see “Hit Me Baby One More Time” on here and it’s definitely one we can’t stop singing, however Sometimes deserves it’s own spot on the list.
The Offspring, “Self Esteem”
This basically sums up 90% of high school romances, and who can’t identify with that.
Ace of Base, “The Sign”
“I saw the sigggnnn, it opened up my eyes – I saw the sign.”
Sir Mix-A-Lot, “Baby Got Back”
I mean, because obviously.
Fun fact, Noel Gallagher admitted he had no idea what a wonderwall was. We don’t either. No one cares.
Sheryl Crow, “If It Makes You Happy”
Oh Sheryl, you had us with your raspy voice and the line “If it makes you happy, why the hell are you so sad..”
TLC, “No Scrubs”
C’mon…you know that you STILL know the words to this one. You and your girls probably even quoted it to a man or two.
Nirvana, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
This may be one of the songs on that list that is totally deserving of a hair brush encore.
Spice Girls, “Wannabe”
You know you know this one!
Not only did we know all the words, we mastered the dance as well.
Metallica, “Enter Sandman”
Even I, with my relatively tame taste in music, can sing along to this one.
Now you can break out the hairbrush and the scrunchy just about anywhere with Chromecast Audio, a helpful little device that lets you stream your favorite music from just about any device. Simply plug Chromecast Audio into your speaker’s auxiliary input and connect to your Wi-Fi network. Then just tap the Cast button from your favorite apps on your phone, tablet or computer to cast songs, radio stations and podcasts to your speaker.
You can play, pause or change the volume right from your phone and use apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music and more. Since Chromecast Audio uses wi-fi instead of bluetooth to stream your music, the quality is crystal clear. Using wi-fi also eliminates any distance requirement like one would face using bluetooth. No more needing to be within a certain number of feet. As long as you can connect to the same wi-fi as your Chromecast Audio, you’ll be able to stream music no matter where you are! The best part? You can still text or call without interrupting your jams – because no one needs a text alert chiming during the middle of “No Scrub.”
You can even link multiple speakers throughout your house to play the same stream, regardless of whether they are the same brand or even made in the same decade.This means all you audiophiles with kick ass old school speaker boxes that are larger than your nightstand can now give them a hi-tech “upgrade” to stream your digital music wirelessly!
TIP: For iOS users there is an update coming soon to allow songs to be played from your iTunes library. Until then, an easy workaround is to download Google’s Play Now program on your computer (or grab the app), and you can use it to upload your entire iTunes library into Google’s cloud (you can store up to 40,000 songs free!). You’ll have access to all your music, plus tons of other music – all at high bit-rate and uncompressed. You’re welcome.
