Now when some people think of 90s music, they instantly think of the Spice Girls… and that’s about it. If that’s you, then you’re doing yourself a disservice, because the 90s were good for a lot more than music that makes you want to put on hair mascara and nail stickers. Don’t get me wrong: the sugary sweet, girl power pop, was great, but there was so much more.

 

Here are some of my favourites from the 90s, marching you through pop, R&B and alternative – plus some of the classics your parents may have had on in the car…
