My All Time Favorite Music Videos:

Note: Some of these may have already been mentioned above



 I’m from Jersey and every Jersey Girl loves Bon Jovi! I mean what is there not to love? He’s hot, the band is hot, and their songs are hot! They literally have a song for everything!!! The best part? They never get old!



Toni Braxton’s songs are from the heart. You can feel the pain, love, tears, etc. just pouring out of her beautiful voice. Toni Braxton songs are the only songs that I can sing and sound good while singing! I used to love listening to her songs, especially when I was in High School and my heart was breaking. You remember those don’t you?


Meatloaf is one of those artists that sings epic songs. By epic I mean they’re long, but sooo beautiful. His songs are about love lost, reaching out, sacrifices, and so much more. He even has some awesome other songs from his Bat Out of Hell album. Such songs include: Paradise By the Dashboard Lights, For Crying Out Loud, and You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night). If you haven’t heard of Meatloaf, I suggest that you start now!


Songs have been in existence for as long as humans have been around. Music helps us describe what we are feeling, or sometimes what we can’t put into words what we are feeling. As I sat here and wrote out this post, I just couldn’t believe that some of the greatest songs of our generation are now officially 20 years old. I still get nostalgic when I hear some of them. I literally get to walk down memory lane. It’s amazing that most of us were between 9 and 10 years old when some of the world’s best music was made! I hope you have enjoyed this nostalgic journey with me. What are some of your favorite songs from your generation?

  3. I’m a youngin, so in 1993 I was all of 7 years old, but I think what a lot of these songs have proven is that they have some serious staying power. I’ve heard them all, know most of them, and they will continue to live on for many more decades to come.

    Thanks for rounding up all of this music. It was really interesting to see it listed all together.
