14 Greatest ’90s Summer Songs

Let’s look back at the sSummer in the 90’s, as for many was it filled with summer holidays, caravans, megadrive, mates, biking, football, surfing the argos catagalogue, besides good music.

Here is a selection of Happy, upbeat hits. Whilst the Nineties were defined by the mainstream breakthroughs of alternative rock and gangsta rap: the charts had a youthful glow, particularly in the summer, with smash singles by teenage R&B heroes like Monica and Destiny’s Child, as well as pop prodigies like Hanson and Christina Aguilera

“Boombastic” by Shaggy
Shaggy just has that perfect summer voice.

“I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys
The song is such a year-round classic that we forget that it was a huge summer of ’99 song.

“Steal My Sunshine” by Len
Nothing says summer in the ’90s more than scooters, tank tops, and Canadians.

“Summertime” by D.J. Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince
Because this song literally invented summer songs for the ’90s

“I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans feat. 112
This song hit me hard but got me through it.

“The Sign” by Ace of Base
You could not escape this song in the summer of ’94 and that wasn’t a bad thing at all.

“Say You’ll Be There” by the Spice Girls
This is the best Spice Girls song. That’s not an opinion; it’s just a fact.

“Waterfalls” by TLC
I think we all spent the summer of ’95 learning Left Eye’s verse.

“All I Wanna Do” by Sheryl Crow
Classic Sheryl. Perfect summer song.

“Dreamlover” by Mariah Carey
Like all of her No. 1s, “Dream Lover” is timeless. Light, airy, and summerlike. Makes me wish I was in a cornfield or something.

“Kiss From a Rose” by Seal
Makes me think of Batman Forever and Seal standing shirtless in a silk pajama set.

“Touch It” by Monifah
A proud ho anthem all millennials can get behind.

“Genie in a Bottle” by Christina Aguilera
An intensely horny song with lyrics like “hormones racing at the speed of light / but that don’t mean it’s gotta be tonight.”

“That’s the Way Love Goes” by Janet Jackson
Sounds as good today as it did in the summer of 1993. Everything about this song feels like summer. The greatest summer song of all time!

“Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison
It was all about screaming along every time he said, “Return of the mack,” which was A LOT!!!
