These 15 Songs Turn 20 in 2018…and I Feel Ancient


What a year 1998 was, right? I was there, and I can tell you – things seemed a lot more relaxed.

Maybe that’s because there was no social media and 9/11 hadn’t happened yet, so the world just seemed a little more chilled out and innocent.

A lot of songs that we still hear on the radio were released that year, and, I gotta admit, this list makes me feel kinda old. How old were you in ’98?

1. Britney Spears – “…Baby One More Time”

2. Aerosmith – “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing”

3. Will Smith – “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”

4. Cher – “Believe”


5. Barenaked Ladies – “One Week”

6. Madonna – “Ray Of Light”

7. Backstreet Boys – “Everybody”

8. Jay-Z – “Hard Knock Life”

9. Lauryn Hill – “Doo Wop (That Thing)”

10. Chumbawamba – “Tubthumping”
