20 Songs You Always Listened To On Your Discman That You Haven't Thought About Since

There really is no other way to put this, if you remember these songs you are definitely getting closer to 30+, than you are to 21.

There are songs on this list that we wish we could forget, and the younger generation should be glad that they never had to live through a time where these were blasting on car radios.

But some of these hits bring back memories of simpler times, handing out with our friends, doing things we enjoyed before we had to start "adulting".  

1. Strong Enough - Cher

Cher has been around forever. This isn't one of her greatest works, but it still made its rounds on the radio waves.

2. Give Me Just One Night - 98 Degrees

Well this did epitomize the era of the "boy band". 98 Degrees never made it to the level of The Backstreet Boys or N'Sync, but they still had their moments.

3. Shadow - Ashlee Simpson

Before her memorable lip sync debacle, Ashlee Simpson was growing in popularity, looking to quickly surpass her sister. But we haven't heard anything from her in quite a long time.

4. Smile - Vitamin C

Vitamin C was a flash in the pan. Between this song and the Graduation Song, she rocked the radio waves (and school auditoriums) for the better part of two years.

5. Bare Naked - Jennifer Lover Hewitt

I completely forgot that Jennifer Love Hewitt even attempted a music career. Bare Naked actually gained some traction on the radio waves.

6. Look At Me - Geri Halliwell

Geri Halliwell attempted to make a run at a solo career after the Spice Girls dropped out of sight. This is one of those songs that you wouldn't know exited if you were born post 1996.

7. Christina Aguilera - Genie In A Bottle

This was Christina's breakthrough hit, and if you are under 21 you have likely heard it, even if you are unaware of its roots. I feel like this was the only song that I knew her for.

8. My Love Is Like... Wo - Mya

This was a sick jam even back in the day. It still holds up to this day. If you don't know this song, it's time to get acquainted with it.

9. In My Pocket - Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore was killing it back in the day. She was a hugely talented singer, but if you weren't in high school in 2001-2005, you have never heard this song before.

10. Get Over Yourself (Goodbye) - Eden's Crush

Hell, I was 21 nearly a decade a go and I can't even remember ever hearing this song before. It fits perfectly in with the music of the time period, and it was the launching point of Nicole Scherzinger from The Pussycat Dolls.

11. Irresistible - Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson has pretty much disappeared off the face of the music/entertainment scene these last five years. If you have never heard this song before, I don't blame ya.

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat.

For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive.

Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block and NSYNC are the indisputable champions of the pop universe, without any doubts.

GiphyBoy bands basically grew on trees in the 90s. A new one would pop up every 45 minutes with one hit song before fading back into the world. Sometimes
