I graduated high school in '99. This hits a very special, very accurate place of nostalgia for me.

Oh, the 1995 kick in is so, so good for me. They say your music tastes are formed in adolescence, and the combination of Alanis Morissette, PJ Harvey and No Doubt hit me like a brick.

This was thought- and feeling-provoking, thank you. Interesting to hear songs that I got to know in my particular biographical order (Fugees in high school freshman gym, say, Fatboy Slim years later in college) slotted back into their actual contemporaneity.

My children, meanwhile, will never know the Chemical Brothers' "Block Rockin Beats" as anything other than a reliable portent that there will be borscht for supper.

Ahhhh these have been so consistently good for so long! I’m kind of excited that they’re finally getting to the music I grew up with, heh

SOOOO much dancing! And soooo happy U2 made it in there! And fun!

Sounds a lot like Girl Talk, which is a massive compliment. A little confused as to why there were Nirvana snippets during the “1991” section, but otherwise really fun and further proof that the nineties were the last good decade.

Edit: Nevermind the Nirvana comment. I forgot what years I went to middle school. I am an old.

I love this! I'm watching the 1986 mix now - that was my high school jam.

The best part for me has always been at the end of the 1992 mix where they put I Will Always Love You over Creep. Absolute goosebumps moment.

Oh snap! For me the so so awesome is right here

I also think the representation in these videos is pretty good. Correct me if I'm wrong, but for Euro/US pop music this does a pretty good job of getting most people that were on MTV. The bias of MTV aside.

In conclusion, the 90s were a land of contrasts

It's my 20's, there's a steep drop down to only knowing the top 10 sorta hits. And a few random things from the radio or dance floor. Old.

1990 is the year I graduated from high school, and these songs cover the precise decade of me going to college, meeting my future wife, working, marrying, and the birth of our first child.

As a result, my familiarity with the songs peaks about halfway through, and steadily fades. :7)

This clip from the '90s encapsulates how I feel about this 34 minute long mashup. The medley part.

Yes, that is me getting old and yelling at the whippersnappers!

This is basically my life from age 8 to 18, which is to say the formative music years. I think I recognized every song.

I know everyone has nostalgia for their particular moment in time, but I feel like in recent history, since "the '90s" kind of ended with 9-11, the 1990s really do feel kind of quaint and playful in a way that seems almost alien right now. Not that there wasn't all kinds of world turmoil, but being a child and teenager in a suburban middle-class life that doesn't really exist anymore, in the '90s, is a particular kind of sheltered I wish I could feel again.

I can track when I cancelled Cablevision because I couldn't afford it based on how I can or cannot recognize some of these videos. Great post!
