We’re all in the mood for a comeback song or two once in a while.
Listening to retro music is a great way to feel nostalgic. Everyone will get in the mood for such songs eventually, but there are too many to remember, here are some songs from the late 90s to early 2010s that you should add to your playlists.
’90s babes will enjoy TLC’s “No Scrubs” more than most. This song will remind you of the simplicity of the music as “No Scrubs” has a moderate tempo and catchy lyrics, with a rhythm that was futuristic for the time. This idea of being futuristic for its time is also helped by its music video, where TLC had defied the laws of physics with cameras floating and standing on walls without regard to gravity. The members that made up TLC were T-Boz, Left Eye, and Chilli. Sadly, Left Eye passed away in 2002, but that didn’t stop the band from making music. their members have learned to move on and to persevere.
The era of boy bands has declined massively since the early 2000s but their impact on the music scene will never be forgotten. NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” is a song that epitomizes boy bands; it includes fun and catchy lyrics with high energy dancing. If you end up wanting to listen to more of their music, sadly the band didn’t release a new album together after their hiatus in 2002.
Like a slower-paced love song; “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, a Swedish rock band, shines with its simple appearance, but just as good. The chorus is sung slowly, but not to the point of becoming a slow jam. There is no hidden meaning behind the lyrics, everything can be taken at face value. And overall the lyrics are just catchy and repetitive. Nothing beats simplicity, whether in the lyrics or in the music played by the band.
Jason Derulo’s early career had a kind of charm that made him stand out in the R&B genre, but his recent songs lack that charm. “Ridin’ Solo” is a prime example of that precocious charm that Derulo had. The song is filled with unique repeating choruses and finger-snapping music. Derulo is now releasing pop and dance singles in line with mainstream music.
“…Baby One More Time” has become one of Britney Spears’ most popular songs, and rightly so, because it’s just good. Not just the lyrics or the beat, but something about the mood of the song just makes you want to sing out loud like you’re Britney Spears herself, and that’s a great thing about her music. However, she has become an artist who is not thought of much nowadays, but why? She had such a following early in her career, but in 2008 she was placed under guardianship by her father, Jamie Spears, who was granted the right to control her finances and those of her estate.
“The Real Slim Shady”:
Slim Shady, otherwise known as Eminem, is no longer the same person he was at the start of his career. His career only started with the chance that Dr Dre took by signing him to his record label, but this decision is one he will never regret as Eminem has become one of the most renowned rappers of all. the temperature. “The Real Slim Shady” is one of the first songs you think of when you want to listen to Eminem the old-fashioned way. This song will remind you that Eminem was a troublemaker in the past, where he rapped about things that people didn’t dare to do.
No list of comeback songs can be completed without the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. There are too many songs to choose from, but “Billie Jean” is a great choice, as well as my favorite. It also represents what Michael Jackson’s music was all about: wide vocal range, repetitive rhythms and his signature falsetto notes.
The point of listening to flashbacks isn’t just to enjoy the music, but to remember how you felt when you first listened to it. The lists of throwbacks are endless, but this list should help you find what to look for when you’re in a nostalgic mood.
