I was cleaning my bedroom the other day and found some old CDs. I felt quite nostalgic and just had to put some to play. It felt so funny to remember the kind of music they used to do and the kind of music I used to like (before my punk rock teenager phase). All the pop boy bands and the sweet innocent girls singing and dancing. It made me miss it quite a bit.
Oh don’t look at me like that! I refuse to be embarrassed by the music I used to listen! That was what the music market put out there by that time and those songs marked my early teenager years. I also used to listen to what’s considered ‘good music’ such as No Doubt, U2, Blind Melon, The Beatles and etc. It was the time I spent all my money on CDs and recorded video clips on tape to be able to watch it when over and over and over again. I kind of miss these 90’s teenager pop simple music. At least there wasn’t such a necessity to shock like I feel music industry does today.
So there it goes the top 5 songs I used to listen to as a teenager.
1 – From the bottom of my broken heart – Britney Spears
It’s impossible to know how many times I watched that video and how much I wanted to have that hair hehehe! This and Sometimes were my favourite from Britney.
2 – Quit playing games with my heart – Backstreet Boys
Even by that time I thought this video was so freaking cheesy and cliched. But it is a classic so I just had to put it among my top 5 because the Backstreet Boys were my number 1 favourite band. O-M-G! This deserves a whole post! Hehehe!
3 – Everybody get up – Five
I seriously thought this video was the best video ever! Hehehe!
4 – What a girl wants – Christina Aguilera
I thought she was awesome! I still think she is!
5 – Stop – Spice Girls
It was just so easy to love them and all that girl power thing!
EXTRA – Say it once – Ultra
Since the day I found the CD I can’t take this song out of my head!
