'90s Slow Dance Songs

Relive Awkward School Dances With These '90s Songs

Sure, the '90s were all about the bump 'n' grind songs. But while you giggled with your best friend over the racy lyrics, they certainly had no place at school dances where a chaperone would step in if any funny business went down. No, that playlist was reserved for cheesy slow dances, prompting you to grab a boy or girl and awkwardly put your arms around each other and shuffle your two left feet. Now that it's prom season, we can't help but revisit the days of our first crushes with jams that will instantly transport you back to the school gym. So grab your honey, pop in that breath mint, and hit play.
