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!

Honorable mentions

‘If you had my love’ by Jennifer Lopez, ‘You drive me crazy’ by N’Sync, ‘Never ever’ by All Saints, ‘I’m like a bird’ by Nelly Furtado.

EXTRA – Say it once – Ultra

Since the day I found the CD I can’t take this song out of my head!
