20 Songs Guaranteed to Give You Severe 90s Nostalgia

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.


MC Hammer – U Can’t Touch This (1990)

Ragheb Alama – Albi Ashe’ha (1990)


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)


Kriss Kross – Jump (1992)

Ace of Base – All That She Wants (1992)


Los Del Rio – Macarena (1993)


Abdel Kader – Cheb Khaled (1993)


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)


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)


Mr. President – Coco Jumbo (1996)

Cheb Khaled – Aisha (1996)


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?


Los Lobos – Canción Del Mariachi (1998)

Goo Goo Dolls – Iris (1998)


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!
