Do you remember your younger self dancing to the rhythm of Upside Down by the A*teens? I bet we all do!
Music has always been food for the soul. Even back in the days, music never failed to put us in a good mood and it always had us moving to the beat.
But of course, we wouldn’t have any groovy songs to sing and dance to if our favorite artists stopped making the music we all know and love today.
So are you ready to press rewind? Let’s take a quick detour to the past and reminisce the top artists that 90s kids will never forget.
The A*Teens were a Swedish ABBA tribute band formerly known as ABBA-Teens and was later renamed to A*teens. Upside Down, Mamma Mia, and Can’t Help Falling in Love are just some of the top hits that always knew how to get our bodies grooving.
I bet we still can’t help but fall in love with them even until now!
M2M is a Norwegian Pop Duo with Marit Larsen and Marion Raven as members. Pretty Boy, The Day You Went Away, and Don’t Say You Love Me were just some of their top hits that gave our younger selves a taste of how falling in love, moving on, and letting go felt.
