1990 - I Love the 90's; Music, Television & Movies to Remember
So sad to see you go...
I find myself having a hard time believing that the 90’s are actually now considered “back when”. I can say that I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s but the 90’s were the heart of my coming to age. The 90’s were the epitome of my adolescence and absolutely affected the person I am today. The 90’s felt like just yesterday and I can’t believe that it has been over a decade since we were even at the end of that era. Let’s look back at the 90’s and see just how much has changed. Here is my recap of 1990;
Blaze of Glory – Jon Bon Jovi

Friends in Low Places - Garth Brooks
Groove Is In the Heart – Deee-Lite

Hold On – Wilson Phillips

What I Was Watching on TV...
These are some of the shows I was watching in 1990. Most or all of these shows still live on in syndication. I guess you can’t kill a good thing.
Beverly Hills, 90210 Okay, so I was a little late to jump into this fad, but my parents didn't think it was appropriate. Cheating, violence, drugs? I don't know what their problem was?
Family Matters Steve Urkel! This show spawned lunch boxes, pull string dolls and was a part of the TGIF line up.
Full House Remember 3 men living together, and the olsen twins were the "olsen twins" not Mary-Kate and Ashley.
America’s Funniest Home Videos Hey, isn't that Danner Tanner? I used to think he was such a dork; he couldn't say a funny line on the show without doing all he could to hold back from laughing at his own joke. If you don't remember look up an episode.
Roseanne This was my house, the typical American family, living paycheck to paycheck with a house full of nagging siblings and dysfunctional parents. I LOVED IT!
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air This was how I came to know Will Smith. Everyone knew how to do the "Carlton" and we could all sing the theme song".
The Simpsons This was the first cartoon that my parents weren't crazy about me watching.

Movies I Was Watching...
Arachnophobia – As if my fear of spiders wasn’t bad enough…
Dances With Wolves – This was the beginning of my appreciation for Kevin Costner.
Dick Tracy – I loved the idea of bringing the comic to life and it had a killer cast; 90’s icon Madonna, and classics like Warren Beatty and Al Pacino.
Ghost- Loved me some Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Talk about a tear-jerker.
GoodFellas – All I have to say is Robert DeNiro; Ray Liotta and Joe Pesci didn’t hurt either.
Kindergarten Cop – This movie saw Arnold Schwarzenegger in a totally kid-friendly role.
Pretty Woman – This movie got every girl thinking about real-life fairy tales and Prince Charmings.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (The Movie) – I actually watched this at the Drive In. It was absolutely awesome to see the ninja turtles brought to life and it starred 90’s icon, Corey Feldman.
