|My senior picture, oh the hair.|
By far, the most iconic thing about this time was the music. I know everyone has songs that mentally transport them to their youth, but I feel the 90s was extra rich, musically. You saw the surge of grunge, the birth of indie rock, the mainstream acceptance of rap and hip hop. There were so many amazing musical moments in this decade, that a tiny little playlist can hardly do it justice. I have boiled it down to my very favorites, ones that shuttle me back to specific moments in my youth. So put on your doc martins and baby doll dresses, grab that jean jacket and have a listen. See if this doesn't make you want to watch Reality Bites.
