The Best of 90's Pop

The Best of 90's Pop

Fifteen years have passed since the decade ended: more than enough time to filter out all the stuff that was actually a tumour to our ears (hey, ‘Macarena’!) and appreciate all the great and diverse stuff that the ’90s produced. Set adrift on memory bliss with all the hit songs of the 90s. Whether you liked the love songs of the 90s, the slow jams, the boy bands, hip hop or all of the above, we have the complete rundown Billboard’s hit POP songs of the 90's. Pop music always comes down to the quality of the song. This is your guide to the very best in pop songs overall and by individual artists.

So, tell us what you want, what you really, really want! I wanna, I wanna, I wanna – the hit Pop songs of the 90s!

1. Backstreet Boys - Everybody
With the backlash against boy bands, too few remember that some great pop songs were recorded by these all male vocal groups. This is a pop masterpiece that helped the Backstreet Boys conquer the hearts of millions.


2. Seal - Kiss From The Rose
This was another single saved from obscurity by its inclusion on a movie soundtrack. "A Kiss From a Rose" was featured as the love them in the Batman Forever film. Seal's perfectly balanced, acrobatic, romantic vocals make this otherwise simply pleasant song a work of art.


3. Santana Feat. Rob Thomas - Smooth
"Smooth" genuinely appeared out of left field. Who would have thought legendary Latin guitarist Carlos Santana would record one of the biggest pop hit singles of all time? Add to that - who would have thought the vocalist would be the lead singer for post-grunge band Matchbox 20? It did happen and "Smooth" deserved the sales and acclaim.


4. Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares To You
It's difficult to remember now the image of Sinead O'Connor prior to the controversial television appearances that nearly brought down her career, but few pop performers have put together more powerful heart-stopping performances than this. The song itself, written by Prince, is outstanding, but Sinead's emotional, gutsy performance made it a classic. Painful loss meets stunning vocal beauty with a perfectly understated instrumental arrangement.


5. 4 Non Blondes - What's up?
"What's Up?" seemingly appeared out of nowhere becoming a neo-folkie, hippie hit first on modern rock radio stations and then crossing over to pop. Although it only reached #11 on the pop chart, it has been a fixture on pop radio stations ever since. The group 4 Non Blondes never duplicated the success of this hit, but lead vocalist Linda Perry has become a successful songwriter and producer.
