More Nineties Nostalgia

Glide compiled a list of the 25 best one-hit-wonders from the 1990’s. They included Top 40 and college radio staples, the only requirement being the song had to be “part of pop culture iconography.” Some of these picks I never want to hear again, but truthfully, more than half live on my iPod.
