Music has always been a huge part of my life. I’m sure that statement holds true for many people. Music has helped me get through some tough times, but my love for music began in early childhood.
I was just a little girl as I sat and listened to the music my parents listened to; a little Frank Sinatra, a bit of the Beatles, and many of the other popular artists of the 60’s. I had favorite songs back then, too. I get nostalgic when I hear something from the ‘good ol’ days’.
In the 70’s, I was introduced (by radio DJ’s) to The Carpenters, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Bee Gees, Abba…and so many more pop artists. Then came AC/DC, Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, and The Eagles. When I was old enough to buy my own records, I was thrilled! I bought my records with my babysitting money in a little record store, aptly named, “The Music Box.” I loved that place!
Most of my favorite songs are from the 90’s – I’m not saying I don’t have favorites from other decades, but my Top 15 favorite songs are mostly from the 90’s. The following songs made my list based on lyrics, guitars, drums, or on a deeper, more personal level. I hope you enjoy these videos!
