Love Songs of the 90s


Love Songs of the 90'sYou heard them for the first time while awkwardly dancing cheek to cheek in a high school gymnasium – or maybe staring across the gym floor at the object of your desire as you hugged the wall and tried to work up the courage to ask him or her for a twirl. Years later, you heard the rest of them at the club with your friends, on the radio every 30 seconds as you tried to get over a bad breakup, or during the most touching scenes of your favorite movie. I am talking, of course, about the love songs of the 90s.

Whether it brings to mind something positive or triggers an avalanche of cringe-worthy bad memories, a love song almost always provokes an emotional response – especially when heard years after it was written. The 1990s gifted us with a huge range of love-drenched tunes, whether they be angst-ridden


alternative rock odes, syrupy pop confections spewed forth from a boy band or the sultry tones of an R & B masterpiece. Even a few hip hop acts got in on the love song action in the 90s, which makes for a decade of incredible variety when it comes to tear-jerking, heart-melting music.

This list takes a look at 30 of the most memorable, important and ubiquitous love songs that hail from that exciting decade. Reading through this list might cause you to reminisce about that first kiss, that first dance, that first breakup – and all of the ones that followed. No matter what your reaction might be, it’s hard not to be moved in some way when remembering just how intense the 90s were for our hearts, and just how much some of these songs still mean to us.
