There are some songs that we are never able to forget, no matter how much time has passed since we first heard them. Then there are the songs that seem to just vanish from our memories, even if we actually loved them at the time. Even though we haven't thought about these songs in at least 10 years, I promise that the second you hear them again you'll wonder how you ever forgot they existed.

"Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" - Nine Days

I know for a fact that as soon as you heard the line "This is the story of a girl," you immediately sang "who cried a river and drowned the whole world." I don't know how we can forget a song ever happened while still remembering all its lyrics, but here we are.

"Smile" - Vitamin C

We all remember Vitamin C, mostly because her song "Graduation" was the graduation song for pretty much everyone who graduated between 1999 and 2005 (it was either that or "Good Riddance" by Green Day). But you probably forgot about her other hit single "Smile," which was actually more successful on the charts than the song everyone remembers her for. I don't think that would put a smile on anyone's face.

"Faded" - soulDecision

soulDecision have the bad luck of not only being a one hit wonder, but also being a one hit wonder that no one remembers. At least their song is catchy.

"Case of the Ex" - Mýa

If you do remember pop star Mýa, it's probably for her part alongside Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, and Pink for the song "Lady Marmalade." But her single "Case of the Ex" was the song that made her famous, and as soon as you hear the chorus you're definitely going to remember it.

"Ocean Avenue" - Yellowcard

Considering just how many pop punk bands made it big in the early-2000s, it makes sense that there are some bands that will get overshadowed. Despite the honor of being "the pop punk band with a violin," Yellowcard's "Ocean Avenue" just wasn't enough to keep them forever burned in our memories.

But they weren't the only music group whose hit song we completely forgot...

We Finally Know The True Meaning Of Cyndi Lauper's Song "She Bop" And We're Mortified

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public. The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit. The catchy lyrics had everyone saying "she bop, he bop, and we bop. I bop, you bop, and they bop." If you look up the definition for "bop," it means


10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
