We grew up in the 90s and we love this time for the feeling of carelessness and fun that we still have every time we come across some painfully familiar artifact of the era: Turbo chewing gum, Pupa cosmetic set, Friends series - the list is endless … So, the other day the Haim group showed a new video, the inspiration for which was clearly the dances of girl bands from the 90s. And we could not resist and compiled a list of the brightest dance moments from the music videos of our childhood and adolescence - from the canonical passage of Britney Spears along the school corridor to the dance of a milk carton from the Blur video.
Britney Spears "baby one more time"
Britney's first hit, which for a long time secured the fame of the frivolous schoolgirl for the singer and taught us how to effectively defile along the corridor at breaks.
Christina Aguilera "Genie In A Bottle"
In the 90s, the world was divided into those who love Britney and those who worship Aguilera. A thin blonde, in the video "Genie In A Bottle" Christina skillfully portrayed a high school student who both wants and injects, and at the same time taught us this playful dance movement.
backstreet boys "i want it that way"
The Backstreet Boys will forever remain for us a group of guys in white shirts fluttering in the wind, who were best at smooth steps and thoughtful hand waves.
Gwen Stefani and Eve "Let Me Blow Ya Mind"
Plastic, erotic and ironic - Gwen Stefani and Eve turned out to be one of the most enjoyable girlish duos at the turn of the 2000s. And their joint video is quite a master class in relaxed dancing.
destiny's child "survivor"
A life-affirming hit and a feminist anthem. The video matches: in it, the Destiny's Child members dressed in camouflage are fighting against the elements, and their dance is somewhat reminiscent of the training of the Marines.
pulp "common people"
The 90s would not be themselves without skinny Brit-pop stars with slanting bangs and narrow hips, which they knew how to twist like a stripper at a pole.
mc hammer "can't touch this"
MC Hammer, like the Russian classic of the 90s Vadim Kazachenko, are two people who have done a lot to popularize synthetic trousers. And the clip of the first "Can't Touch This" went down in the history of dance as an encyclopedia of stupid movements that people around the world repeat at the most crazy parties.
TLC "no scrubs"
90s as they are: three girlfriends, synchronized dance, futuristic costumes and the idea of "girl power" in the air.
Classics of the genre: Like Michael Jackson's moonwalk, these moves by Madonna will never go out of style. Two glasses of wine, red lipstick - and now we are ready to recite "strike a pose" and repeat the appropriate movement.
Note to Miley Cyrus: Keith Flint taught us how to dance crazy dances with the maximum possible tongue hanging out in the 90s.
Blur "coffee and tv"
Simply the most touching, albeit stupid dance in the world.
'N Sync "Bye Bye Bye"
One of the signature gestures of 'N Sync, and has since remained the most advanced male group in terms of choreography.
