I cannot believe that some of these songs are 20 years old. Made me feel old but listening to them brought back some memories of my teenage years. Hope you all enjoy.

Subject: RE: 20 songs that are 20 years old
I know three of them

"I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston. Although I know it from Dolly Parton in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
"Whoomp (There It Is)" by Tag Team. I think if you've been alive in the past 20 years you've heard this one.
"I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" by Meat Loaf. Then again Meat Loaf is from the '70s


I may have heard a couple others but can't hum them offhand. Hell, the songs I know completely tend to be 30-50 years old

I knew everyone one of them and many of them take me back to specific instances in my youth. Some of them I did not like back then sound better now some I loved then do not sound so great. Kind of interesting how perspective changes over time.

Not only do I know all of them, I know most of the lyrics (shout-out Ice Cube). Daniel, "What we have here is a failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach..."

Probably. Then again, it helps to speak the same language when communicating. Many times people aren't even though they're both speaking English in this case.

Same.  There were two I didn't recognize by the title but when I heard 2 seconds of it I was like "oh, THAT is what that song was called"  For example, I new the Nirvana song, but didn't know it was called that.  All the rest I could sing half of them in my head just looking at the title.  I probably own half on CD somewhere or another.

Most of those I've heard so many times, I would have guessed alot older than 20 years. Surely that Aerosmith song was around during Reagan's second term?

Which island?

I spent a couple of weeks island hoping with my boyfriend after college.  I never wanted to be single so much in my whole life.

Cube raps so slow that he just now finished a song he started signing in the '90s.

+1

But the only one I don't immediately recognize was the snoop song.  Doesn't help that they all came out when I was a sophomore in high school, just months from getting a drivers license.

But one side note: 4 non blondes.  Linda Perry made some news last year when she and Sarah Gilbert (Roseanne, Big Bang Theory) got engaged.

Same for me too - everything else I started to sing the lyrics (or at least the chorus) as soon as I saw the title.

I know all of them. And I think I know all the words to all of them. Well, most anyway.

I can't believe it's been 21 years since I graduated high school.

Why did I click on that link???  WHY?  For the love of God Why??????!!!!???  Knew every song and most of them are in my I-tunes library.

Anyone have a solution on getting "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" out of my head?

On a side note, and not to stir up the debate, but music from 20 years ago was sooooo much better than the drivel my kids want to listen to today.

I like that list. I still listen to ONYX, Backseat of my Jeep by LL Cool J, etc. I like the old school stuff. How old are DMX songs? Better look those up!
