Watch this if you want to be instantly transported to 1999
Oh my hell, this was thirteen years ago.
holy crap high school
Primary thoughts, in about equal proportion:
1) Aww, I remember that song! Good times.
2) JFC I REMEMBER THAT STUPID AWFUL SONG AUGH MAKE IT STOP
3) Suddenly I am fourteen years old and at summer camp again, holy shit. (And/or listening to pirated copies on my mom’s computer in this strange new “MP3” format.)
4) I miss TLC like burning. :(
Also, raise your hand if you immediately went to YouTube and watched the full-length music videos for half the songs here.
The summer of 1999, which was the summer between middle and high school for yrstrly, this was, in fact, the entire playlist on Atlanta’s Star 94, which cycled over… and over… and over…
I need to add some actual lyrics from “Summer Girls” in here because every time I’m reminded it exists it’s like a beautiful gift of magically shitty songwriting all over again.
Hip-hop mama, spic n span Met you one summer And it all began You’re the best girl That I ever did see The great Larry Byrd, jersey 33 When you take a sip You buzz like a hornet Billy Shakespeare wrote A whole bunch of sonnets
HOW ARE THESE SONGS FROM 1999
5th grade was an interesting time. I knew all the songs and knew most of the lyrics. Wow. LOL Remember when MTV and VH1 cared about music?!
This is the year I met my ex-husband. O_o
I was eight years old and now I’m ancient.
whoops suddenly 7 again
haha i was fucking five i dont remember most of this sob
aaah yes, high school
I never realized how obsessed I was with most of these songs until now. 14 year old me had impeccable taste obviously
wait so much of 99 was so good. like especially the songs by non-white artists.
