When Spotify came around and enabled other people to see what you were listening to, I was in trouble. I have a bad habit of getting obsessed with a song and then listening to it on repeat until the playcount is in the hundreds. The fact that people can now witness my repetitious music taste, meant I had a problem. There are just those songs that you never get sick of, no matter how many times you listen to them. These 24 songs never get old and they're perfect to put on repeat.
Now, I will warn you now: what is to come is almost primarily late '90s/early 00s tunes so if you're not down with some TLC or *NSYNC then you're probably going to hate this.
But for those of you who appreciate a healthy dose of crappy music and nostalgia, then this is the list for you. You can put these songs on repeat. You can jam to them while you work. They're even perfect for a party playlist 'cause these puppies are sure to please a crowd.
So take a look back at these epic songs from days gone bye. Turn up your speakers, grab an ice cold drink, and revel in these 24 songs that you will never get sick of (or, at least, I know I won't).
