Let’s create the ultimate 90’s playlist

Recently, the boys and I went on a road trip. There were many, many, many hours spent streaming music in the car. B2 loves One Direction so we had a bit of that. B1 loves Michael Jackson, B3 and B4 aren’t old enough to know what they like and I’ve listened to enough Wiggles over the past 10 years to last me a lifetime.

Once we’d listened to their music I jumped onto my favourite 90’s music station. Nearly every song I said to B1 – oh I love this. His reply, more often than not was, do we have to listen to this oldies music. OLDIES MUSIC!!! Reminds me of growing up in the 80’s when my parents would listen to 60s music. I probably said the same thing!!

Anyway, after way too much consideration, I have come up with the following 90s playlist (based on the songs we heard on our road trip):

  • Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough – Patty Smyth
  • All I Wanna Do – Sheryl Crow
  • Pure Massacre – Silverchair

  • That’s a pretty solid list, Kirsty! Although I’m a Madonna and Michael Jackson fan and I don’t see any of her stuff…and they were both huge in the 90s. 🙂 Great list! I still can’t get over your little one calling it oldies music!!!!! Lol
