(Had these on VCR, I was probably way too young to understand the top 2 fully, but I must have watched them 10 times each.)
Secondly: the music I remember (don't expect good music just yet):
Indeed, Eurodance. How did this ever become popular? I know popular music is usually not very good. But this might be the worst. Those flat beats, nonsense lyrics, sloppy vocals, etc.. This doesn't make me miss the 90's, at all.
Things which do make me miss the 90's: playing in the fields/on the farm with my childhood friends, being shy around cute girls in class (haha), films like Trainspotting, Eyes Wide Shut, and series like Twin Peaks.
Other things which made the 90's worth while, although I didn't experience them consciously: music by Pavement, Sonic Youth, Pixies, The Stone Roses, Boards of Canada. Too bad I only got to learn them at age +20. On the other hand, I certainly made up for this lack by indulging myself in music. Have a listen to this Spotify-playlist I created:
But something I won't make up for (and this was where I got the idea for this post) is the 90's print trend which is all over ASOS nowadays. With its prints, patterns, geometric shapes, and bright colors it brings back the 90's in an undesirable way. Want some evidence? Check this out:
(River Island Plimsolls, at ASOS, €26.39) (ASOS spray print shirt, €12.50)
(ASOS printed shirt, €14.58) (ASOS all-over print T-shirt, €9.72)
(Topman MTV T-shirt, €30)
[Can it get more 90's than Cindy Crawford?]
So, bring back the 90's? Let's leave this trend where it's been. Dead and buried.
How about you, do you support this trend?
