#TBT – A weekly playlist – 1999


AYO! Welcome to week 2.
I already have a monthly playlist on the go to promote what I’m jamming to on a monthly basis. But wasn’t NOT ENOUGH. Music is such a huge part of my life that I felt I needed to share more.

For those of you that aren’t aware of the #TBT situation – we’re talking throwback Thursday. We’re taking it way back. At least 10 years old. ( At the time of this post, we’re talking no newer than 2006!)

For each year I feature as a throwback, I will feature the same amount of tracks as my age that year. That being said, some years I will need to double my age (ie. 1995 I was six, and I don’t think it’s fair to only feature six tracks!)
Away we go!

Last week I featured 1997, and this week I figured we may as well move up a bit to 1999. A classic year with plenty of hits!

This week – 1999 hits. I was ten years old at the time.
A snapshot of Sam at 10 years old:

  • I was in grade 5.
  • Competed in the “jump rope for heart”.
  • Cheered my sister on (who was competing in pageants at the time, and I did not.)
  • My Gameboy colour was everything.

The 1999 playlist (I had to double my age in tracks because there were so many good tracks in 1999! I had a hard time narrowing it down.)
