“Kid me loved it in the ’90s and adult me still has the platinum album in the car. I remember once taking my car to the mechanic and when he switched the ignition on the stereo came on and blasted some Vengaboys at an indecent volume – I wish I could say I was ashamed.”


16. ‘He Said She Said’ by Ashley Tisdale.

17. ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers and Halsey.
