The other week I was in the gym and because I had forgotten my iPod I was listening to whatever radio station they had on. The DJ started introducing tracks as a throwback to the early naughties or late 90’s and I could not believe how old these tracks were.
I was born just on the cusp of the 90’s in January 1990 and at 26 I’m still pretty young but when I hear that tracks which I love and remember oh so well are 10, 15, even 20 years old I feel like crawling into bed and having a little sob. How is life going so quickly?! I can still remember all the words to so many of these tracks, who doesn’t remember a lot of the Eminem/ D12 rap sequences and the crooning of Nelly and Kelly?! Come on, I can’t be the only one!
I am very much a creature of habit and while my general music tastes are on the heavier side of the musical spectrum I do love listening to music which isn’t quite as headache inducing and this is where the below playlist comes in. Every since one of the tracks on this list is over 10 years’ old.
Get all nostalgic and check out how much used to sound (FYI I love each and every one of these tracks!)
