90 collage with text

Smells like the 90s – and the best tune from the last decade of the 20th century is …

It was the decade of boy bands and The Spice Girls, rave and grunge, with rockers like Nirvana and Pearl Jam selling millions of albums. The three top-charting acts of the 90s though were Celine Dion (#3), Madonna (#2) and Mariah Carey (#1). And if you look at the most successful singles of the era, it was the big ballads of blockbuster movie soundtracks that really swept people away in the decade that launched the internet – remember dial-up modems?

Steve Hawtin consulted 205 record charts and compiled a list of the 100 biggest hits of the 90s. You can see the whole list here, but we’d like to know which one of the top 20 hits is your favourite favourite.

    The Boss all the way for me Marais – jy weet mos 🙂 And it just nipped ahead with my vote, but interestingly enough the song in 2nd place has significant meaning to the year 1997 for me personally 🙂
