Best Props in 90s Club Hits

I recently discovered that 90s club hits have spectacular music videos. My knowledge of these songs was mostly limited to hearing them during across the floor, jazz exercises at Miss Hamilton’s School of Dance. Thankfully Youtube exists, and we can rediscover these lost gems of the early 90s. Between the black leather, spaghetti straps, and wild prints, there are some quality prop and costume work.

Here’s are some of the best props and accessories in 90s club hits.

CeCe Peniston – “Finally”


This large shiny jacket, which is only larger and shinier in black and white.

Ace of Base – “The Sign”


This leather sleeveless vest. They have to be European. Honorable mention goes to the various fabric backgrounds.

La Bouche – “Be My Lover”


The mechanical vent/fan in which this video takes place.

K.W.S. – “Please Don’t Go”


These wigs and earring combos.

No Mercy – “Where Do You Go”


All the hair gel.

Robin S. – “Show Me Love”

RobinSLightsThose spinning lights. So 90s club chic, I’m assuming.

Real McCoy – “Another Night”


This old-timey microphone (and all the other anachronistic sound equipment). What are those guys spinning? Are they generating power to broadcast this song?

Snap! – “Rhythm is a Dancer”


These giant spheres being held by some people in silver bodysuits on construction equipment.

2 Unlimited – “Let the Beat Control Your Body”


The pommel horse that seems to be the least insane thing in this video. There’s just a lot of gymnastics equipment mixed in with whatever else is happening here.

Haddaway – “What Is Love”


The ceramic head that is just as timeless and elegant as Night at the Roxbury.

Technotronic – “Pump Up The Jam”

All of the green screen in this video which cannot be captured in a single frame.

This short list of items might perfectly capture the early to mid 90s.
