Oh shoot! It’s Valentines Day! Happy Valentines Day to everyone 🙂 As you all know, Avi is not around today, so no Valentines Day for me.. It’s not really that big of a deal; but since it’s Valentines Day today, let me share with you a few of my favorite old school love songs.
1. Joe – I wanna know
You know I never realised that this song actually had some good choreography for it’s time.
2. Mariah Carey – We Belong Together (Because let’s face it, WHO didn’t like this song back in the day?? )
3. Nelly & Kelly – Dilemma
There’s ain’t no 90s kid that can deny that this was THE JAM back in the day! Wait for the Valentine’s Day “disco” in the multipurpose room and request them to play this song for your crush.. Yeah man, those were the days.. Nowadays, we got kids acting a fool for puppy love and committing suicide selfishly.
4. Nobody – Keith Sweat
You can’t tell me that this song is not #moodMusic because you and I both know that this song is just the perfect amount of smoothness to speak to your soul. You know this song comes coupled with Twisted, because you just cannot deny that song it’s glory!
5. Nsync – This I Promise You
This was basically the anthem of the 90s! This and Richard Marx, I’ll be right here and of course, KC & Jojo’s All My Life. This song makes it to my list, only because it was so damn famous when I was growing up. Now, their known as classics, however they were the current hits in my day!
6. Backstreet Boys – As Long As You love Me
Gosh, these guys were infamous in my childhood.. I remember singing the chorus of this song even in my adulting days! Apart from this main jam, songs like Quit Playing Games with my heart, I want it that way and shape of my heart were hot! Here’s a playlist I found with Backstreet Boy songs.
7. Tamia ft Fabolous – Into You
You gotta admit, this song makes you feel for that bit of thug lovin that everyone needs now and again. It’s the perfect mix of beat and sound. I love this song.
8. Usher ft Alicia Keys – My Boo
Now what kind of list would this be if I didn’t put Usher’s songs up in here. I mean, he really rose to stardom in the 90s. All of us needed the new Usher song and there wasn’t a car or house that didn’t blast the likes of “Yeah“, “Love in this club” & one of my favorites, “Lovers & Friends” at full volume when their parents left them alone at home. On the love song part of it, Usher hit us with the deepest music from Confessions to Burn to You Got It Bad and Moving Mountains. I personally cannot stand the below song (don’t even ask lol!) but it makes my list because hey, even I can’t deny that it’s definitely a Valentines jam.
9. Leanne Rimes – How Do I
Because this song and another Backstreet Boys song was our preschool mini debs ball song.. I mean, could I really skip it?
10. Whitney Houston – I will always love you
It’s true that I cannot listen to this entire song EVER, but I had to add it here because the woman really did make beautiful music.
Songs from the likes of Boys II Men, S club 7, Monica, All 4 One, Leanne Rhymes, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Savage Garden, hell; even Britney Spears were the hit makers of my time. I miss the music of the 90s, they just don’t make them sweet and innocent anymore. I would have been able to sing a simple love song in front of parents in my day, but today, love songs have more profanity in it than anything else & the videos are so disrespectful; I just cannot even deal!
So if you’re alone like me this Valentines Day and you’re a person that likes to celebrate stuff (like me.. again), put some music on and take yourself on journey through time. I can guarantee you that it will definitely put a smile on your face! Please feel free to add on your favorites in the comments! Have an awesome day!
