'90s Pop Workout Mix
by Annie Zaleski | March 10, 2014
From Sporty Spice's karate kicks and tracksuits to RuPaul's fierce encouragement to "Work it, girl!", pop music from the '90s is tailor-made for working up a sweat. Exhibit A: The chart domination of Hi-NRG Eurotechno (Real McCoy, Corona, Amber), the emergence of Swedish pop (Ace of Base, Aqua) and house-music crossover hits (Crystal Waters, Robin S.). Exhibit B: The decade's cheeseball hits (Will Smith, Rednex) and one-hit wonders (Quad City DJs' "C'mon 'N' Ride It (The Train)," Crush's "Jellyhead"), as well as the dancefloor designs of pop stars (Janet Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey). Take a spin through our '90s Pop Workout Mix and reminisce about the flashy tunes that cemented the decade's brisk-beat business.
