A 90’s sick day playlist

So with this cold front that has hit Chicago comes another unwelcome friend, being sick. Now most people like to hang out and watch Netflix or binge on their favorite TV show. I personally like to hang out and listen to music. Here are some of the best 90’s songs that you can add to your sick day playlist that will not only make you feel nostalgic but will help you feel a little better on the inside.

1. Waterfalls by TLC

TLC


This song hit the charts back in 1995 when most of us were still in diapers or entering the terrifying world of toddlerhood. TLC’s made one of the most memorable all female group career with popular hits like “Creep”, “Waterfalls” and “No Scrubz”. The mellow beat that this song has just gives you the chills and at the same time just sways you gently. The unique combination of each members vocals helped make this song even more hypnotic and could make you just time travel back into the 90’s.

2. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers

This alternative band created one of the greatest ballads of the 90’s. This beauty came out in 1991. This song is both eerie and dark but so upbeat. The inspiration for this ballad was the lead singers struggle to overcome his own heroin addiction. This song is a reflection on his relationship with the city of Los Angeles itself. Listening to this song can put you into a trans in which you can feel the singers emotions and struggles.

3. I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston

This is one of the few songs that you just can’t control yourself but to sing along with it. This chart topper emerged in 1992 and is considered to be one of Whitney Houston’s greatest hit of all times. The gentle piano  and melody of this love song is so relaxing, peaceful, and yet very soothing. Then again this is the go to karaoke song for every woman who has ever loved.

And last but not least…

4. Killing Me Softly by The Fugees

Lauren Hill’s pipes and the remake of this classic hit is a combination for a great jam session. I don’t know about you but I keep this song on the top of my 90’s playlist. This remake was released in 1996 on The Fugees second album “The Score”. The remix of the original beat, beautiful vocals, and overall haunting lyrics is a great combo if you’re looking for a song with some real soul in it. A definite recommendation if you just want a smooth throwback to the 90’s.
