As a kid, I'd get so irritated when my mom and aunt got together and played the music from their childhood. Sure, there were some tracks that I enjoyed every now and then, but there were some songs that were as weird as the stories that accompanied them. But now that I'm an adult, I'm realizing how great it is to share the songs from our youth, and there are definitely some songs from the '90s you should force your child to listen to, just as our parents did with the music from their era.
And not just so you can relive your youth. Playing this music gives your kids some retro tunes to add to their playlist. I'm sure my mom vividly remembers my sister and I begging her not to play some of her old records every weekend. Now that I'm older though, I have those same songs tucked away in my own iTunes library and find so much joy in playing them. Perhaps it's simply because I love to relive the greatest memories and moments from my childhood, but I find that there's a sense of importance of exposing the younger generation to the music that you listened to during your era.
Whether you're ready to dish out a few history lessons or just want to prove how great music was in the '90s, these 19 songs will surely do the trick.
