The s were known for many things—butterfly hair clips, flannel shirts, and baggy jeans come to mind—but beyond those fashion trends, it was also a boon time for something else: the love song. And while some '90s love songs feel as dated as the styles, many of them have held up well. Ginuwine's "Pony" continues to feel sensual and futuristic, Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You" remains a peerless alt anthem, and Mariah Carey's "Emotions" still captures the rapturous feeling of falling head over heels for someone. Whether you're trying to find a nostalgic song for your first wedding dance, something to, err, have sex to , or an upbeat anthem to blast while doing some quarantine cleaning, read on for a list of the best, most romantic love songs of the s that span all genres. The song reached No. It's about a woman so desperate to reman in a failing relationship she's simply asking her partner to convincingly pretend to be in love. The Roots' "You Got Me" expertly captures relationship insecurities that come with distance and different lifestyles, but the Grammy-winning track ultimately has a positive outlook. The duo came close to giving the song to another artist, but their vocals are what give it its signature warmth. The title track is a masterpiece, with swinging drums and swaggering come-ons from D'Angelo. There's the ooey gooey saxophone line at the beginning, a reggae dub rhythm guitar, and a little flute lick on the hook, all of which come together for a sweet and distinctly Gen X love song.
