So after spending last weekend at the beach, we had a mini road trip to get there and spent the majority of it down memory lane – listening to old songs from when we were kids, teens, etc. It made me think about how much has changed, how some songs are still great or catchy or both, how some songs are still cheesy, and how some are just plain funny or fun. Either way, it was such a blast to enjoy old favorites and see who could remember all the lyrics to them. So, I made up a list of some of my favorites, some that make me laugh or remember old times, and some that just represent the time really well. I hope you enjoy them, whether you’re old enough to remember them or you find some new favorites!

    Too funny! We have XM Radio in the car, and I have the 90’s channel, and Pop2k and every once in a while I will hear these songs and I get so excited and turn it up real loud and sing and dance (yes while driving or in traffic) to these songs becuase they were so much fun, and they bring back so much memories ❤
