Here is the ultimate guide to the most fun songs of the 90's. Carefully picked by our fun-o-meter algorithm... just kidding! There is absolutely no scientific basis for picking these - they're the most fun songs: upbeat and energetic, and picked purely subjectively.

You won't find anything heavy or anst-filled here, so if that's what you're looking for then you're in the wrong place.

But if you want plenty of excitement, then you'll love our ultimate list of the best 90's fun songs, they'll put you in a party mood.

Without further ado, here they are, in no particular order.

The Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim


The song's official name is The Rockafeller Skank but it's better known as Funk Soul Brother. It features a strong beat and plenty of energy.

Sandstorm by Darude


Technically not a song because it's an instrumental, Sandstorm is an iconic and exciting piece of music that manages to be both chill and exciting at the same time. Awesome.

We Like to Party! (The Vengabus) by the Vengaboys


The enthusiasm and party spirit that the Vengaboys bring to We Like to Party! just can't be matched.

Brimful of Asha by Cornershop


A commentary on India's film industry, Brimful of Asha was a huge success by alternative rock band Cornershop.

Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega


Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega is the 90's version of a 1950's song of the same name by Cuban musician Dámaso Pérez Prado. Its big bold sound sets it apart from many of the other songs on our list.

5, 6, 7, 8 by Steps


Country-pop song 5, 6, 7, 8 was a hit by British band Steps. It features a strong country-and-western theme in dance pop format.

Informer by Snow


The lyrics of reggae song Informer by Snow are so fast it's hard to distinguish what he's saying. But who cares?!

Barbie Girl by Aqua


A social commentary about the Barbie phenomenon, Barbie Girl by Aqua take a light-hearted look at a topic not otherwise tackled via music.

Dreams by The Cranberries


Dreams is a captivating and memorable pop song by British band The Cranberries.

Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit by Gina G


Pop song Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit is sung by Australian singer Gina G. This song was actually the United Kingdom's entry for the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest.

Here Comes the Hotstepper by Ini Kamoze


Bold catchy reggae fusion song Here Comes the Hotstepper was a number one hit in three countries. It was also featured as the soundtrack to the film Pret a Porter.

Tragedy by Steps


Tragedy is a cover by British band Steps of a Bee Gees song by the same name. The Steps version in 1998 turned it into a dance floor hit. Incongruously, it turns grief-laden lyrics into a peppy cheerful dance song.

Tubthumping by Chumbawamba


A strong beat and strong lyrics makes Tubthumping a memorable anthem by Chumbawamba.

No Tengo Dinero by Los Umbrellos


Containing the music in the 1960 film Never on Sunday, No Tengo Dinero by Los Umbrellos is catchy, memorable and funny. It doesn't take itself too seriously.

What's Up? by 4 Non Blondes


The lyrics have considerable angst (we almost didn't select this song for the list!) But despite that, What's Up? by 4 Non Blondes is ultimately an upbeat yet pragmatic depiction of life, set to a catchy tune.

Ecuador by Sash!


Dance hit Ecuador by Sash! is a tune without which no 90's list of songs would be complete. The techno-dance music with the vocals in Spanish meld beautifully together to create an incredible result.

Be My Lover by La Bouche


Be My Lover by German-American duo La Bouche was a big hit on the dance floor.

Livin' la Vida Loca by Ricky Martin


One of the best-known songs of the 90s, Latin pop Livin' la Vida Loca by Ricky Martin was hugely successful in many countries.

I Like to Move it by Reel 2 Real


The popular 90's song I Like to Move It by Reel 2 Real was featured on the Madagascar series of movies.

Wannabe by Spice Girls


The Spice Girls were a dance-pop sensation of the 90's, and Wannabe is their most well-known song.

(Mucho Mambo) Sway by Shaft


Shaft's release of (Mucho Mambo) Sway is actually an updated version of a much older song. The original song, Quien Sera, was a bolero-mambo song from the 1950's.

Better Off Alone by Alice Deejay


Alice Deejay turns sad lyrics about a break-up into an upbeat dance floor hit with Better Off Alone.


The 90's indeed had plenty of fun and exciting songs to enjoy.
