If you grew up or listened to pop music in the nineties, I can almost guarantee you know the lyrics to “Gangsta’s Paradise” (by Coolio) and “Stay” (by Lisa Loeb) word for word. What’s hard to fathom is that these songs became popular over 20 years ago. Where has the time gone?
Coolio and Lisa Loeb were two of the hottest pop stars of that time, and they are joining other 90s pop icons Smashmouth, my favorite rap trio growing up: Salt-N-Pepa, “Son in Law” star Pauly Shore (if you haven’t seen this hilarious film, you must!) 90s cover band The Bayside Tigers and so many more at 90s Fest this weekend in Brooklyn New York. I wish I was attending, it sounds like so much fun and definitely a trip down memory lane!
Lisa Loeb and Coolio stopped by the Today show this morning to dish on the famed music festival/concert 90s Fest and to play a 90s pop culture quiz game. If you loved ‘My So Called Life’, Backstreet Boys, the classic movie “Pretty Woman”, “Dawson’s Creek”, and a few others I guarantee you’ll do well if you try to play this game yourself. 🙂 Be sure to watch the video below!
