Sk8er Boi - Avril Lavigne
I always looked up to my older sister, so when she went through her Avril Lavigne phase, I did too! It was cool to see a Canadian artist succeed, plus Avril was a punk style icon - we can't forget her signature loose neck tie and spiked belt!
Spinnin' Around - Jump5
I don't really know how popular this group was, but in my church growing up, every girl was a Jump5 fan! Their songs were so techno-digital-pop-y and stuck in your head all day. I still know all the words to every song and actually got to see Jump5 live on their farewell tour! (Seriously, if any of you grew up with Jump5, leave a comment - I'm so curious!)
Hey Now - Hilary Duff
I was also a huge Disney Channel fan and of course loved watching Lizzie McGuire! When the Lizzie McGuire Movie came out I had to see it and I loved it! She crushed that song in the end and BAM Hilary Duff's singing career began. I still have her first album! This song brings me back to sleepover days with my friends from elementary school!
Destiny's Child - Survivor
This song reminds me of the radio... is that weird? My sister and I had our favourite local radio stations and one year this song blew up like crazy! I knew all the words, plus it's a great dance beat. I'm currently a huge Beyonce fan, so not much has changed.
Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
Last but not least... I'm sure this list would be incomplete without this classic! I had this song burned onto a CD and played it so many times either the CD player or the CD stopped working (I forget which). My sister and I made up a dance to this song too. I really liked Britney Spears until she got all scandalous...
Let me know what songs bring you back to your childhood days!
