top 20 1990s love songs

The 1990s were full of many different types of music styles inspired by unique events. There was an introduction of Grunge (see our list of post-grunge songs), Ska, and an insurgence of techno/dance music to fill dance floors.

The 1990s ended with the fear of Y2K and the crash of computers. Many thought computers would not recognize the new century.
