From Brit-pop to soft rock to hip hop – the 90s had it all. But come December 1999, it was Mariah Carey that Billboard Magazine named Artist of the Decade. Her five-octave vocal range titillated eardrums and tugged at heartstrings. She inspired young girls to croon into hairbrushes and grown men to sing along behind steering wheels.
As an ode to Mariah, the songbird supreme, this playlist comprises some of the best 90s ballads. (Make sure you grab that hairbrush, before you press play.)
