What are your top/bottom three songs that you liked 20 years ago, but that you now think are completely laughable?

Asked by ragingloli (41622points) July 29th, 2014

If you do not remember three, one or two will be sufficient.

Hmmm, let’s see, I’d be 5 years old so my music selection was essentially shit. My favorite songs back then were

Can’t Touch This
Ice Ice Baby
Sharp Dressed Man

egh the home videos of me dancing to these songs :P

ZZ Top is the only one I’ll still listen to.

20 years ago was 1994…I wasn’t alive yet. Although I remember hearing plenty of songs from that era, I’ll do songs from around 15 years age because I was alive to remember popular songs form the turn of the millenium. I’d have to think of this for a while to get a real list, but here’s a decent list* from the few seconds I just took to jog my memory of songs. I think they’re laughable in a sense that I can’t believe I actually liked them.

3) I Hope You Dance—Leanne Something
2) Shake it Fast—Mystikal
1) Blue—Eiffel 65
*Boy bands excluded.

I have remarkably good and unchanging taste. Usually if I like a song, I like it 20 years later.

I was 34 and I have no idea, but I’m a little like @filmfann and my taste in music is pretty eclectic and hasn’t changed radically over the years, always an exception to the rule though, I shall have to give it some thought…

I liked a lot of sad music because my marriage was crumbling.
Some of my most played were
Strong Enough by Sheryl Crow
(I still think it’s a great song, I don’t laugh about it, but I can’t relate to it anymore thankfully)

You were meant for me by Jewel
(this one I’m not that big of a fan of anymore)

Now….for laughability…..
I used to love the entire “Cracked Rear View Mirror” album by Hootie and the Blowfish

Here are some songs from 1994 – Billboard top 100.

I’m 23 years old, so probably Mary Had a Little Lamb or Twinkle Twinkle. What laughable songs. I can’t believe I liked them so much.

20 years ago, I was into 10,000 Maniacs and Frente! Now I think they are “meh” and “terrible,” respectively.

I looked up the top 100 billboard songs of 1994 and Here they are. Now, of the top 100 I can recall:
#9 All that she wants by Ace of Base;
#18 Can you feel the love tonight by Elton John;
#21 Baby I love your way by Big Mountain;
#38 I would do anything thing for love by Meatloaf:
#40 Because the Night by 10000 Maniacs;
#43 Come to my Window by Melissa Etheridge:
#49 Linger by The Cranberries:
#50 Loser by Beck;
#54 “Streets of Philadelphia by Bruce Springsteen
#68 Crazy by Aerosmith;
#77 Mary Jane’s Last Dance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers;
#89 “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night) by The Four Seasons:
and finally
#91 I’m the Only One by Melissa Etheridge.

And of all these, the only ones I would go out of my way to listen to would be the one by Meatloaf, the two by Melissa Etheridge and maybe the Tom Petty one so my list is sooooo much longer than three (around 9 or 10).

A total of 13 out of 100 songs. All in all I would say that musically, 1994 sucked worst than the hair bands of the 80’s.
