Growing up, music played such an important part of our lives. We got caught up in the dance trends, we listened to our favorite songs on the radio, and we built up our cd collections and made mixtapes on cassettes. Looking back, we notice that certain songs have a special place in our hearts because of the memories that they conjure. If you’re like us, music had such a large impact on your life during high school; these were the formative years when we experienced so many things! So we decided to do a little research, and look up the number one song on the Billboards from the years we went to high school.
Below you will find the top songs from 1990-2005. We’ve also included our personal favorite songs from each year. Let us know what you think, and if the songs below match up to what you were listening to in high school! And of course, please feel free to share any other great memories you might have in the comments below.
