Are you psycho-emotionally equipped to embark on a nostalgia-packed journey into 90s music? We’re here to test your limits! Stop everything you’re doing, plug in your earphones and jump onboard the Beirut.com time machine.

On this glorious morning, we bring you the ultimate 90s musical throwback, two hits at a time.


1990

MC Hammer – U Can’t Touch This (1990)




Ragheb Alama – Albi Ashe’ha (1990)





1991

Hossam Hosni – Kol El Banat Bethebak (1991)



Apparently this guy was a huge figure in Arabic music during the 90s. He seems to have had pretty of luck with girls too…


Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit (1991)





1992


Kriss Kross – Jump (1992)




Ace of Base – All That She Wants (1992)





1993


Los Del Rio – Macarena (1993)



HEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MACARENA…


Abdel Kader – Cheb Khaled (1993)





1994


Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas Is You (1994)



Arguably the universal anthem of cheesiness… We cannot allow ourselves nevertheless to omit such an iconic moment in the history of 90s music (and the world) so here you go.


The Cranberries – Zombie (1994)





1995


Ricky Martin – Un, Dos, Tres, Maria (1995)



I bet you’ll be stuck on the chorus for the next three decades.


Andrea Bocelli – Vivo Per Lei (1995)





1996


Mr. President – Coco Jumbo (1996)




Cheb Khaled – Aisha (1996)





1997


Kazem Al Saher – Zedeni Ishkan (1997)




Céline Dion – My Heart Will Go On (1997)




I mean, isn’t it obviously obvious that this is the most obviously obvious obviousness on this list?



1998


Los Lobos – Canción Del Mariachi (1998)




Goo Goo Dolls – Iris (1998)





1999


Santana – Maria Maria (1999)




Elissa – Baddy Doub (1999)




Elissa wearing bed sheets remains a pivotal moment in the modern history of Arabic music videos. So 90s!
