Everyone has one. That song that you blast at full volume once you are completely alone. I have decided I will no longer be embarrassed about the songs I like and neither should you. Don’t be embarrassed, though. That song is a banger! I have compiled my top 5 songs that everyone is too scared to admit that they like.
5. Eve – Let Me Blow Ya MindI don’t know why, but every time I play this around my buddies I get some unneeded grief. The beat is iconic (shout out Scott Storch, the genius behind Still Dre) and Eve has some flow. This is also before Gwen Stefani sold out and became a TV host. Absolute banger. 10/10.
4. Nickelback – Animals
You will most likely hear this instrumental before the 2nd period puck drop at an ECHL game in Gainesville, Florida. As a young teen when this came out, I thought the lyrics were the coolest thing ever. What a loser I was, but the song still slaps.
3. Real McCoy – Another Night
Not much to say. What a BOP. All the other songs can be played at normal volume, but once this comes on it goes full blast. I could do a full blog on 90s bangers that features Ace of Base and every European house group but I’ll save that for some other time.
2. Taylor Swift – Our Song
If you are under the age of 30 and had a crush on a girl like freshman year of high school this is your jam. A go to move of mine was just sending cheesy songs to gals and hoping they didn’t find out I was texting the same lyrics to other girls. Also hating Taylor was popular back then. Not for me. Always been a Swifty.
1. Shania Twain – Forever and For Always
A first ballot “this song is a banger” Hall of Fame candidate. It’s okay to admit that a Shania Twain song is in your Top 10 of all time songs. In fact, it’s weird if you don’t think Shania Twain rocks. The best thing to come out of Canada since Wayne Gretzky and DEFINITELY better than that hoser Celine Dion. Also my first celebrity crush. I’m pretty sure she married to some rich guy and just hangs out in Europe. What a legend.
