Top 25 Songs Of The ’90s This Week

Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit

Hi Gary,

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” and “Save Your Tears” are paying homage to the sounds of the 1980s, but there’s a lot of ’90s to be found in current hits, too.

Taylor Swift’s Billboard Hot 100-topping “Willow” sums it up with the memorable line, “I come back stronger than a ’90s trend.”

As Darius Rucker is enjoying his latest Country Airplay No. 1, Post Malone’s cover of the highest-charting Hot 100 hit by Hootie & the Blowfish, “Only Wanna Be With You” (No. 6 peak, 1995), debuted on the March 13-dated Hot 100 at No. 74. This week, the remake enters at No. 38 on Alternative Airplay (where the original reached No. 22).

Plus, Sam Hunt is rising with his latest hit, “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s.” The song even debuted on the Hot 100 last week in the 90s, at No. 92.

Yada yada …

Hi Pablo,

Yeah, what’s the deal with the ’90s?! (Ok, I don’t have a punch line here. Jerry Seinfeld made it look easy.)

The ’90s are back stronger than, well, a ’90s trend. Beyond those hits that you note, Tag Team’s “Whoomp! (There It Is),” a No. 2 Hot 100 hit in 1993, has also resurged, having been tweaked by the duo itself for a new Geico ad. (Here’s the full scoop.)

“We’ve been obsessed with this song since it came out in the ’90s,” said Roger Hailes, senior copywriter at the Martin Agency, which created the spot. “It has this magical ability to put people in a good mood no matter what. I remember in high school, if a party was lame, we’d put on ‘Whoomp.’ That’s when parties just take off.”
