    Haha I know, I felt old writing it! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my post! Are there any songs you would add to the list? xx

    No problem! And maybe All or Nothing by O-Town. I remember listening to that song all the time when I was younger. Lol 🙂

    Love these songs! Teenage Dirtbag has been one of my favourite songs for years! I always danced along to S Club 7 and Las Ketchup at school discos!

    Completely agree! There are so many songs from my childhood that I constantly forget about and it actually makes me sad when I realise just how old I am now! There’s a nightclub here in Glasgow that plays a mix of those childhood hits and today’s music and it’s honestly the best night out because you can listen to the mix of them and everyone knows them! xx
