The '90s are known for many things, beginning with the music.

New genres came to be, new artists emerged as superstars, and singer after singer belted some of the most powerful love songs you could ever hope to hear.

Some of them served as the soundtrack to the decade's most amazing movies, while others simply took over the airwaves and had women everywhere singing about their emotions.

You might have to update your playlist once you remember some of these epic love songs.

1. “Emotions” – Mariah Carey

Mariah was single-handedly responsible for many of the most powerful love songs from the '90s, actually.

No surprise there.

2. “Possibly More” – Bjork

Bjork made music for an entirely different audience, however, and her love songs resonated with an entirely different sort of '90s girls.2

3. “Whatta Man” – Salt-n-Pepa, Ft. En Vogue

And this?

When someone, anyone, was happy with their man, this was all they could sing about.

4. “Friday, I'm in Love” – the Cure

Goths in love turned to The Cure.

So did slightly heartbroken and/or melancholy kids.

5. “Kiss from a Rose” – Seal

I still love this song.

I love it.

The lyrics are so poetic and decades later, Seal's voice still sends chills up my spine.

6. “Wonderwall” – Oasis

Oasis was my jam.

I listened to “Wonderwall” every time my erstwhile bestboyfriend broke my heart.

So … pretty frequently.

7. “Iris” – Goo Goo Dolls

I don't care what anybody says, I still like the Goo Goo Dolls – and this song?

This song still kills me every time.

8. “Everlong” – Foo Fighters

Same!

This is actually the song that made me like Dave Grohl.

9. “Say You'll Be There” – Spice Girls

Hey.

The Spice Girls could get down with a love song.

You just couldn't ever hope to slow dance to their music, really.

Well, no, I guess that's wrong … two become one, after all.2
