I’m sharing a brand new 90’s workout playlist today. It includes songs by Marky Mark, Britney Spears, Nsync, and Destiny’s Child.
I have to admit that I had a lot of fun putting this playlist together yesterday. I honestly think that I enjoy these songs a lot more now as throwbacks than I did in the 90’s when they were new. They remind me a lot of elementary school and junior high. I’m pretty sure the very first tape I had was an MC Hammer one. My mom bought it for me for my birthday. I listened to that thing non-stop. In my bright yellow Sony walkman. Did anyone else have one of those? They were the coolest thing to have at my school.
You can find this 90’s workout playlist on Spotify. I love using Spotify because it’s with me everywhere I have my phone. I’m also able to download playlists since I’m a subscriber so I don’t have to worry going over on my data.
I remember listening to so many of these songs back in the day. Some of them like Better Off Alone and Where Do You Go were from the very first parties I went to – when basements without parents around were the coolest. My friends and I thought it meant that we were so mature to be able to be down there without anyone watching us while we danced.
Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Nsync were huge when I was in junior high. I actually didn’t listen to any of them very much back then (I was more into alternative), but I definitely do enjoy them every once in awhile now.
I very specifically remember listening to Cotton Eye Joe on a plane going to California one summer to go visit my cousins. How do I remember details like that for decades but I can’t remember actual useful information? I have no idea.
