Good morning and happy Friday! I can’t be the only one who’s glad that it’s the end of the week. It’s been a long and busy week for me, so I’m looking forward to a weekend with only one thing planned – a movie night with some friends. The plan is to go see Hidden Figures, which looks good. Octavia Spencer is a favorite actress of mine, so I’m glad we decided on that movie. Plus time with my friends is always fun, no matter what we’re doing, so I’m excited to be able to hang out with them.
Today I’m sharing my newest playlist. This time it’s a 90’s dance one. I’m a child of the 80’s, so by the time I was 11 or 12 years old and just starting to figure out what kind of music I liked, the 90’s dance craze was in full swing. I think just about any Canadian would remember the Much Dance Mix tapes that came out every year. My favorite was definitely ’95, though I had a few of them and listened to them non stop. I thought it would be fun to revisit some of that music and create a whole playlist with some classic ’90’s dance songs.
I think Saturday Night was my absolute favorite song from Dance Mix ’95. I remember listening to it and imagining getting ready to go out on a date. I’d never been on a date, but I remember picking out the exact outfit I would wear.
I couldn’t not add Good Vibrations. I remember thinking the music video was unbelievably cool, but looking back at it now, it just looks cheesy. It’s worth watching just to see Mark Wahlberg lifting the barbell with the cinder blocks on the end of it instead of plates. There’s also the dancing in the puddle of the abandoned building that’s also pretty funny.
It wouldn’t be a ’90’s playlist without some Vanilla Ice. I think his album was one of the very first ones that I bought. On the car ride home from the store I couldn’t wait to get home so that I could listen to it, because back then the only thing you could listen to in the car was the radio.
