There are still some things which I feel that were good about the '90s'. There were not too many unfortunate incidents happening back then. I still remember that I was in school back then, so it's obvious that the decade of the '90s' holds a special place for me. Most of you might agree that school days are some of the best days of your lives. The heartbreaks, the sports, the teachers―there was so much to learn and enjoy. For every incident, good or bad, in my life, I have a song linked to it.
