Seriously. The 90s were, like, totally awesome.  And stuff.  Although really, can you blame us?  The decade that brought us the SNES, N64, PlayStation, Sega Saturn (c’mon admit it, you wanted one), PS2, Dreamcasts, BH90210, The Simpsons, Baywatch, grunge, the Spice Girls, Romeo + Juliet, Oasis, Blur, Nirvana, etc etc etc.  You see? See how/why we just canNOT. LET. IT. GO?? 🙂

This all stems, of course, from VH1.  Otherwise known as the home for all things awesome.  I mean, what other network will put out “I Love the New Millennium in what? 2007? 2008?

So!  The other day I saw the top 100 hit songs of the 90s.  I can’t decide if it’s a GOOD thing or a BAD thing that I have the majority of these songs in my music library.  I’m gonna go with good.  And because I wanted to share some of the fun – here it is … the list of the top 100 songs from the 90s.  Enjoy!
