The ‘90s not only gave us some of the best TV shows, they also blessed us with awesome music. Combining the two would give us all the feels for years to come and is the ultimate nostalgia bomb.
Buffy and Angel dancing to The Sundays’ cover of “WildHorses” had tears streaming down our faces in 1999 and can still make us well up. Mulder spinning Scully around in ‘97 to Cher’s cover of “Walking in Memphis” made us question the meaning of the word “platonic” to this day. And how could “I Want Your Love” by Transvision Vamp not take you back to Brandon’s weird alarm clock going off in the opening scene of Beverly Hills 90210 in 1990, kicking off a new school year and a rad new show to watch.
There were memorable original songs too. “Smelly Cat” by Phoebe from Friends, so popular that it has since been performed by Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, among others. And do you remember “Chocolate Salty Balls” from South Park? That made it to the top of the charts in several countries, making us (or our parents) either gasp and hit the “off” button on the car radio, or snicker at the humor of it all and turn up the volume.
Specific dance moves were introduced through ‘90s TV series too. Can you hear “It's Not Unusual” and not do “The Carlton” from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air? And who can forget “The Routine” by Ross and Monica, to the song “Trouble with Boys”? “They” say scent is the best way of making and unlocking memories, but I think the combo of music and television may give the olfactory bulbs a run for their money.
