So obviously Lookbooker's have an outstanding taste in music. Nevertheless, I know that everyone has a guilty pleasure. Mine? 90s pop music.

I'm talking Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Britney, Christina, Hanson, 5ive...and my personal favourite, Will Smith.

And obviously we all remember the one-hit wonders.

"I'm a barbie girl, in a barbie world! Life in plastic, it's fantastic!" and "I'm blue da-ba-de-da-ba-dai!"

And no GOOD 90s music. No talk of Smashing Pumpkins or Oasis here. This is reserved for the incredibly wonderful crap of the 90s!

I personally LOVED SoulDecision. And bonus points to anyone remembers the Moffats, as they were more Canadian than maple syrup.

Hellz yeah I love the bad 90's music.
I wish the kids of today had our music too.
I was the happiest kid ever when I shouted my way through my Britney cd.
(and the saddest kid ever when my mother accidentely scratched it.)
However, what do the kids nowadays listen to?
Lady Gaga? I'd spank my kid. :c

As inappropriate as Lady GaGa seems for kids to listen to nowadays, it's crazy hearing the lyrics of my old 90s favourites. Hell, I LOVED "Faded" by SoulDecision, but it was about being drunk and wanting to take the clothes off a girl and "going further"

I was probably around 10 years old when I heard this. Hah, that's hilarious.

2UNLIMITED - No Limit.

They were at no. 1 for what seems like months in the UK (back when the charts used to matter).

A sample of their song writing genius:

No NO,
No No,
No NO,
No No,
No NO,
NO NO,
There's no Lim-iiit.
....
C'mon.... techno-techno-techno-techno!

Its especially bad when you consider how & where Ozzy started, I mean how did 'Sweet Leaf' turn into crap like 'Dreamer'?

The excessive drink & drugs probably ruined his mind so much that he lost any ability he might had to be self-critical. youtube.com/watch?v=RNsfYkyLiuM the Glass of orange juice is evidence of that.

Its sad cause he used to be awesome, I used to dismiss the Ozz man as just an old geriatric hack who hasn't written anything interesting in nearly 40 years. but then I saw some live footage of Black Sabbath from the early 1970s, it blew me away. Ozzy had such a magnifigant stage prescence, singing ability and was a precursor to every headbanger. Whats also remarkable is the adversity that Sabbath faced, people didn't like their slowed down heavy brand of electric blues, they were all from poor working class backgrounds and you can sense the anger associated with that in their songs. There was also a very strong political and anti-war message behind their songs, on top of that they preformed each show like a Satanic Black Mass, much to the concern of some occultists who warned them it might have negative consequences.....to summon Satan every night.

I think the reason the Sabbath had so much of an impact on me was that the ideas and themes in their music seemed like sweet fucking candy to my ears, especially when I was a depressed teenage satanist going to a catholic school, the Oz man introduced me to an imaginative world of destruction.

I remember the Moffats! Also, I actually went to a Backstreet Boys concert, but I was only 13 so I'm allowed to not have any taste at that point. I had a Spice Girls poster on my wall at one time, too.

And Aqua used to be one of my favourite bands. I even had their video on vhs. Weirdly, I liked Aqua back in my goth years, and listened to them along with all my depressing music and metal bands. As some guy working at HMV told me, I had strange taste in music.

I thought of another one. Remember that song Sandstorm by Darude? I think that was still the 90s.

YEEEEES. I played the shit out of their CD. It's funny, because they did the whole autotune thing before autotune was cool, hah.

I still listen to "bad" 90s music, and I am not ashamed. :P

For some reason, that's one of those songs that pops into my head every now and again, but I can never remember that its by LFO.

Also, I'm blaming you (and Michelle V) for the fact that my boyfriend and I realised yesterday that not only do we remember the words to Stop by the Spice Girls, we can remember the hand motions that go with it as well. It was stuck in my head all day after those two lines of it that you guys posted in the TotT IX thread.

I still listen to the "bad" 90s music all the time. I have XM in my car and I play the 90s station more than any other. I have a ton of it on my ipod too. I could never get rid of the spice girls and all the britney cds. I even have the aqua cd on there.

Nsync was my first concert hahaha.. my second was Britney, but I still love her and have seen her 2 more times.
