What would you expect from this song?

Just awesome like thatI expected the Macarena, instead I got a workout remix of "Moskau" combined with "Running in the 90s" and the intro to Gloria Estefan's version of "Everlasting Love". EDIT:
MEGA!!!Oh, YouTube commenters, how I love thee.

The most '90s song of all time?
Thunder, Perfect MindActually, that's more late '80s. Also, more catchy than it has any right to be. Get out of my head, demon sonics...
stout shako for 2 refinedWikipedia says it was recorded in 1992 and released in 1993...
Just awesome like thatThe early '90s were more or less an extension of the '80s, much like the early '60s and the '50s.
The Appathetic.Unlike the early 60's, the early 90's had plenty of 90's things around. The 80's just took forever to die is all. The 50's died quick and painless. The 80's died slowly. Come to think of it, the early 70's were probably an extension of the 60's. Not sure what to think of 70's to 80's. And of course, the 90's ended quick and painless too. The Turn of the Melinium doesn't seem to be over yet.

ArtibiHaddaway - "What Is Love" Awesome song and rhythm, lyrics are kinda gay.
One day, House was walk into his House. "It is good to have House House!" say House, as he walk into House House.
Just awesome like thatI never thought of that song as being a gay anthem. How do you figure it is? I'd say 1969 heralded a new decade pretty well, though if not that, then I'd say either the ending of U.S. military action in Vietnam ('73) or the breakup of The Beatles signaled the end of the '60s.

What exactly makes a song "nineties-sounding", anyhow?
You can't even write racist abuse in excrement on somebody's car without the politically correct brigade jumping down your throat!
These songs, by the same artist, is more 80s, and is released in 1990.   And a sort of a riddle from what you all said. What era is early 80s music more affiliated too? 70s or the 80s? For example, the song "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, does it sound 70s?
Just awesome like thatIt's hard to describe, but it's like how every decade seems to have its own distinctive sound. Like how when you think 70s music you instinctively think disco. Or the 60s sunshine pop and psychedelic rock.

Bieber My BallsI would actually nominate Sometimes Always by the Jesus and Mary Chain featuring Hope Sandoval as the epitome of '90s alt-rock.
Proud CanadianLike how when you think 70s music you instinctively think disco Not so.

I never thought of that song as being a gay anthem. How do you figure it is?Obviously, it's a Protest Song in support of gay rights - Haddaway just had to be pretty subtle about it and make it seem like it could be a simple love song in order to let it slip by on mainstream radio without controversy. By asking "what is love?", he is questioning why love between same-sex couples is not viewed in the same way as that of a man and a woman. When he says "baby, don't hurt me no more", he is addressing lawmakers, who he feels are hurting the gay community (or perhaps even society as a whole) by not providing them equal rights. Okay, now I almost want to elaborate on this ludicrous train of thought further and troll songmeanings.net or something...
Just awesome like thatDO IT!! :D
AXTUCE MUN AXTE INCALFor some reason, my mental image of the 90s is defined by ska and white funk. So, basically "Opera Singer" by CAKE. ...Which came out in 2001. Okay, scratch that. "Underwater" by Switchfoot.
Can-I-BusIce-T is 90's music to me.
The smartest idiot you will ever meet.
Das kann doch nicht sein!When I think of songs that are very 90, I have to think of Macarena and... that one song... sung by this one woman... that... has "Saturday Night" in it's lyrics, which may or may not be it's title. The former is easy: It was so fucking omni-present that anybody, who missed it, can only be envied. But the latter, I'm not sure. I just heavily associate it with the 90, but I don't think I heard it especially often and (obviously) don't even know it's name or the name of the singer. Oh, also Smurfs. There is a series of CDs intended
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
stout shako for 2 refinedHeh, we had those Smurfs CDs this side of Bad Bentheim, too.
Fresh For 2014There's a lot of aspects of the nineties, so it's hard to say which is the most nineties song that I can really think of. I've always thought of, say, "Around The Way Girl" by LL Cool J to be really reminiscent of the nineties. But there are other aspects of nineties music that I would also note - Dancehall, for example. "Murder, She Wrote" by Chaka Demus and Pliers is another one I think of alot when I think of the nineties. And then with the late nineties there's whole other groups of music and cultural changes to think of: the return of popular boy bands, rap getting more and more extreme, and then there everything that happened with rock in the 90's which I don't even know about because it wasn't my bag, etc, etc, etc. However, I've in any case always thought of this song as being the 90's New Yorker Anthem, and a timeless theme song for New Yorkers in general. Even though the rapper is from Baltimore.
