22 Best 90s Songs, From Destiny's Child To Britney Spears

There’s no denying it: the 1990s were an iconic time for pop culture – particularly ’90s songs and their place in both the music scene and the movies.

Whether you’re into a bit of rock, R&B, pop or a little bit of everything, it was an era that delivered on all counts.

So we’ve pulled together the ultimate playlist of the best 90s songs, including J-Lo, Britney Spears‘ debut, all the best romcom soundtrack classics from the time and even a bit of Backstreet Boys.

You’re welcome.

Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

The absolute broken-hearted 90s girl karaoke classic. Who hasn’t sung along to this one on a night out, or into their hairbrush on a dreary afternoon?

Wannabe by Spice Girls

Where it all began – has life even been the same since the five Spice Girls ran around the St Pancras Hotel and sung about being their lover? No. No it hasn’t.

Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve

Made all the more iconic by its feature in the ’90s classic movie Cruel Intentions – starring Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe – this Britpop classic is full of catharsis.

Wonderwall by Oasis

Speaking of classics of the era, you can’t deny this one either. It may be slightly overplayed at wedding receptions but it will go down as one of the most memorable ’90s songs ever.

Don’t Speak by No Doubt

Gwen Stefani has had an iconic career, but did it not begin with Don’t Speak? It started out as a love song, then morphed into a break up song after Stefani’s split from No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal.

If You Had My Love by J-Lo

J-Lo’s debut single is definitely one of the all-time ’90s greats. Of course, there was much more to come from her, but there’s something about this tune that brings us all the nostalgia – from her sweet vocals to the 10/10 90s fashion in the music video.
