We’re going back to the ’90s tonight, people. As you may or may not know, I have a thing for VH1’s Top 100 marathons. I can kill an entire day watching one, even if it covers a genre I don’t care that much about. Since I don’t want to inflict you with selections from the top 100 heavy metal songs, I’m going with something I do like: the ’90s.
The ’90s were a pretty good time for me. It is the decade that saw the most change in my life, since it included, among other things, graduating from high school, going to college, having my first kid and moving down south to Georgia.
So, here are some selections from VH1’s Top 100 songs of the ’90s. Can you identify the songs they are from?
- “Anyone can see the road that we’re walking is paved in gold, it’s always summer, we’ll never get old.”
- “All the flowers that you planted, mama, in the back yard, all dies when you went away.”
- “Marry him, or marry me, I’m the one that loves you baby, can’t you see?”
- “Don’t you ever fear, I’m always near, I know that you need help.”
- “Oh life, is bigger. It’s bigger than you and you are not me. The lengths that you will go to,”
- “I can’t stand it, I know you planned it. I’m gonna set it straight, this Watergate.”
- “I know you say that I’m assuming things. Somethings going down, that’s the way it seems.”
- “She’s into superstitions, black cats and voodoo dolls. I feel a premonition that girl’s gonna make me fall.”
- “All the roads we have to walk are winding, and all the lights that lead us there are blinding.”
- “I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style, and so I came to see him and listen for a while.”
