Greatest Hits: My Childhood

The first album I ever purchased was Britney Spears' self titled album. I was about eight or nine years old. Growing up in the 90s (born in 1990!) I had the same play list as every elementary school child: a little Backstreet Boys, a lot of NSync, a little Christina, a lot of Britney. I've decided to compile the Greatest Hits of my Childhood. So here they are: the songs that were the soundtrack to my playground days. It was a time when Spice World was my favorite movie and my biggest worry was what to wear to school that day.

Haha,God I remember all these tracks used to play on the radio when I was in elementary school.....aah those days where I'd save up and go buy tapes and the guy at the counter had to bend over to see me! I have a post like this drafted...similar theme.

I don't know if it's a generation thing.....but somehow the music of the 90s was very happy. You could listen to songs that weren't about sex, drugs or getting drunk, and feel really good about yourself.

Most parents will tell their kids that the music of their time during high school and college was the better than the stuff playing currently....but somehow I can never see myself doing that.

Considering I've spent most of the years 'growing up' in the later half of the decade, I still feel that most of the stuff today is trash.

I mean you see 7 year olds with a blackberries and loaded on music full of negativity. Even Nickelodeon was so much better at the time!

Loved this post! =D

Hi Jessi, Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving a comment. (A Camp Host's Meanderings and Levonne's Pretty Pics.) Although I in my 30's in the 80's, my favorites from the list are That Don't Impress Me Much Shania Twain and Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)Backstreet Boys. In fact I loved those two songs and listened to them as much as possible. Nice new look to your blog by the way!
