Subject: What do you remember about 1990?

Written By: 90s Guy on 07/11/18 at 5:28 pm

What do you remember about 1990? The fashion, trends, hair, clothes, music, movies and general vibe? Did 90 feel much different from 89?

To me it did feel different than 1989. In early 1990, I remember walking around with a huge New Kids on the Block fashion pin. Lol. They were very popular that year. Also, I remember watching "Vision of love" by Mariah Carey for the first time when it first aired on VH1. That was the year her singing career began. But my favorite singers from 1990 were Lisa Stansfield and Cathy Dennis.

I was starting my new life. I was medically retired from the Air Force, no longer married and moved to Vermont without knowing anyone or having a job. I decided to go back to school. It was during that time I did a lot of healing and a lot of growing. It was also during this time that I met the love of my life.  :)

At the time I was building up my VHS movie collection. I still have it and have no idea what to do with it.  :-\\

In terms of fashion, I lived in jeans & tee shirts and my hair was pretty much the same way that it is now-long with bangs. And yeah, I colored my hair then, too-pretty much the same color that I use now. The only difference is, I did it myself back then because I couldn't afford to have someone do it for me. Yeah, money was VERY tight back than.

As for t.v. I was upset that the O.J. trail kept preempting my soaps. The prime time shows I used to watch were Dr. Quinn, Quantum Leap, Touched by an Angel, Full House, Sabrina, Walker Texas Ranger, & Lois & Clark. Other shows include Save by the Bell & Daria. Even though I was in my 30s, I watched a lot of Nickelodeon:  Are You Afraid of the Dark, You Can't Do That On Television, The Secret World of Alex Mack, and others.

By this time, I started moving away from popular music but I did like this song:

I was in my last year of elementary school.  New Kids on the Block, Madonna, Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul were among the most popular artists at the time. 

One of my favourite songs was called Every little tear by Paul Janz.  It was a massive hit in Canada and though I didn't know who sang it at the time, I knew it to hear it and I sure loved when it came on the radio.

For me, that was the year I turned 10. My life during the first half of the year (4th grade) was completely different than that of the second half (5th grade), although there were some positives on either side. I changed schools for the third straight calendar year (and I had my first taste of special education when I started 5th grade). Also it was my final summer of attending day camp.

Just my thoughts, having been born then:

Musically (Most to least Dominate):
*Watered-down/fading 80's sound (Still distinctly 80's, but not as overproduced and synth heavy as 1984-87. This became the norm by '88-'89).
*What the 80's thought the 90's would sound like ("You Can't Touch This," "Tic Tac Toe," "Rub You the Right Way,"etc.)
*Pure 80's (Songs that could've easily charted in '85; e.g. "Enjoy the Silence," "I Wanna Be Rich," "What Kind of Man Would I Be?" "Cradle of Love")
*Early 90's ("Vogue," "Everybody Everybody," Lisa Stanfield)

Fashion:
*Similar to music -- watered down 80's (slightly less hairspray & makeup), what the 80's thought the 90's would look like (circa 1989), pure 80's (big hair/mullets), and possibly pre-Grunge. Lots of neon. See early seasons of Saved by the Bell.

I was born in 78 so I don't remember too much of 1990.

HOWEVER

What I will tell you is that it was fabulosity at the most fabulous level of fabulousness.

I vividly remember so many minute details, it's like it was yesterday.

My mom decorated our kitchen with ducks.  Ducks were BIG in decor in the late 80's and 1990 and then dropped off significantly because of the NES Game Duck Hunt - people became scared of them!  :o

Tyco released Lego, and they became a huge hit with kids and grandparents, who enjoyed making and breaking them.

Essentially every single musical act from the 80's had retired at this point.  Paula Abdul had fizzled out, and Madonna's hit Vogue was stronger than ever.

Movies?  Oh, where do I start with movies?  This might be the best year EVER for a movie.  It could have been.  Ghost won all the awards!

I was finishing preschool and entering kindergarten, so I mostly just followed the popular kids trends, led by (of course), TMNT. I remember the "Genesis Does", but didn't play on one until after Sonic the Hedgehog came out, and it was all about the limited half-dozen to later dozen NES games I had (they were expensive back then, so I basically just played each game to death). I also played a LOT of board games, much more than what today's kids do thanks to apps. I also liked Smart Start-type clones (it was a Fisher-Price learning material), along with catching Disney in its Renaissance. I do remember jammin' to "U Can't Touch This" with mom, and it did seem a little corny given that the music of the '50s, '60s, and non-disco '70s was played a lot more then than it is today, and I remember that not only more retail stores seemed to play music on the speaker systems, but louder than today. Shopping malls seemed a lot busier as well, and its the epitome of "what an early Millennial thinks the 80s are", even if they don't remember of the core '80s and only transition to the '90s. But I wasn't quite old enough to really understand the news yet (the first Gulf War was the first, but that was at the very end of the year and early '91). Everything back then just seemed more fun and loose and not forced and hurried like it does now, but as my parents/grandparents said, it's "progress".



At the time I was building up my VHS movie collection. I still have it and have no idea what to do with it.  :-\\

If you have pre-recorded material recorded off the TV with commercials (from the blank tapes, not the pre-packaged movies), sell it on eBay or even PM it to someone like me.

As for t.v. I was upset that the O.J. trail kept preempting my soaps. The prime time shows I used to watch were Dr. Quinn, Quantum Leap, Touched by an Angel, Full House, Sabrina, Walker Texas Ranger, & Lois & Clark. Other shows include Save by the Bell & Daria. Even though I was in my 30s, I watched a lot of Nickelodeon:  Are You Afraid of the Dark, You Can't Do That On Television, The Secret World of Alex Mack, and others.

The O.J. trial was the mid-90s, and soaps were still quite popular at the start of the '90s. Also, all the bolded shows you mentioned premiered from 1992-1996.

I'm a bit surprised since Duck Hunt came out in the mid-80s and was one of the original pack-in games for the NES, before and after Super Mario Bros. And I was never aware of such a decline due to a video game.

Tyco released Lego, and they became a huge hit with kids and grandparents, who enjoyed making and breaking them.

Lego first became popular around the mid-'60s, and aren't associated with Tyco.

Essentially every single musical act from the 80's had retired at this point.  Paula Abdul had fizzled out, and Madonna's hit Vogue was stronger than ever.

Possibly the falsest piece of info posted here. Paula Abdul had two #1 singles in 1991 ("Rush, Rush" and "Promise Of a New Day"), and still is nostalgically popular these days. And mentioning Madonna contradicts your first sentence, given that she already had a great '80s and would continue to be successful well into the '00s.

I know about eBay. Carlos & I have been selling crap stuff on eBay for over 10 years-but not everything sells. When I heard that Disney VHS tapes were selling high, I was about to list those. My sister and hers didn't really sell-or they didn't sell very high. And the issue with selling my VHS tapes there is that I'm not too sure I am ready to part with many of my tapes-some are on the rare side-like Weird Al's UHF movie.


I read this thread as the 1990s-so I was basically answering what I remember about the decade-not just ONE year.

I really wanted to share earlier but tbh, I'm afraid I'll give you stuff from 91 and 92 because I was so young.

I remember...

1. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles phenomenon.
2. The Tim Burton Batman phenomenon.
3. Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul (I loved that video as kid. It was a live action person dancing with a cartoon, which leads me to...
4. ....Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)
5. Dick Tracy
6. Vision of Love by Mariah Carey
7. Having nightmares about the Garbage Pail Kids movie.
8. Hating the fact that bozo the clown was on when I got home from preschool
9. Watching The Real Ghostbusters
10. Feeling like the shows that were on weren't for me...
11. ...Until Rugrats appeared that fall.
12. A lot of nights with the news showing people breaking a wall and cheering.
13. Oh, yes. And my friends and family doing the Rhythm Nation choreography.

The collector's conundrum. What to do with old technology? I too have many VHS tapes I do not want to part with. Many are rare, sometimes even one of a kind. Concerts that were filmed, etc. It would be an all consuming task to convert these (I specifically did not use the word "upgrade") to current technology. And just think, if I HAD transferred all these to DVD, which came after VHS, now the DVDs would be outdated technology! It never ends. So I just keep them and occasionally watch them and hope I always have a machine that can play them. People are so anxious to IMMEDIATELY dump their old technology the SECOND something new comes along. This is exactly what people did when first cassettes, and then more importantly CDs, replaced the vinyl LP. Everybody got rid of their albums! Not me. No way. Now it seems every person who so hastily dumped their beloved albums wishes they still had them.

One solution to the VHS problem is I have put them into large plastic tubs with lids of the type that can be purchased in hardware stores, etc, and pushed two of the tubs together and placed two on top of those. I covered them with a really nice Indian style cloth and now this storage unit doubles as a decorative table. Nice!  If I ever want to watch one of the tapes I just take off the cloth and fish out the tape.  8)

Indeed - at the time my kitchen (living in my own place) had oak cabinets, and I picked blue for an accent, with lots of - you guessed it - little blue ducks.  (Or white ducks with blue ribbons, hearts, etc.)  All those ducks were really cute!  (I did eventually get tired of them, but they were with me for quite a while.)  ;D

I'm not sure anyone has had a Victrola since the 1920s. Except as a curiosity or something. But, yes, many people maintain working turntables to play records, myself included. In the 70s (and beyond) we called them "stereo systems" or "sound systems" which generally included components such as receiver, turntable and speakers, plus maybe a tape deck.

A Victrola is an antique record player that you have to wind up by hand. They usually play 78s. My great-grandfather had one that is now in my sister's custody. As for my 33s & 45s, I do have a few turntables to play them on but none are set up at the moment.

I'm assuming you mean the Victrola. I haven't heard it in DECADES. What I remember was it was pretty tinny, and most of the records we played on it was pretty scratched up so there were pops and such.
