watch: "remember 1999" makes me think it was the best year ever

I always thought 1996 was my most favorite year. One reason: The Magnificent 7.

After watching this here video of everything 1999 included, I'm wondering if I was lying to myself my whole life.
  • Pop princesses really took off
  • "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" debuted
  • Big Daddy and Toy Story came out
  • Napster made getting music so much easier
  • Robin Williams was still effing great
  • Macy Gray, Creed, Lenny Kravitz, and S Club 7 all hit the charts
  • There was an extra girl in Destiny's Child whose name I don't even remember.
  • Saying "so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel" was totally acceptable
It's a long video, but every second is a nostalgia mind-eff.

And just for fun, some more fun facts about 1999:

  • Cher’s "Believe" is No.1 on Billboard's Year-End Hot 100 singles. 
  • Backstreet Boys’ Millennium is the biggest selling album of the year.
  • Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez and Eminem release their debut albums.
  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is the highest grossing film of the year (also, the first new Star Wars film since 1983) 
  • The Nanny, Home Improvement, Sister, Sister, Mad About You and Melrose Place, all ended their series run. 
  • The first Coachella is held. The musical line-up includes Beck, Rage Against the Machine, Tool, The Chemical Brothers, Jurassic 5 and Morrissey.

Ohh, here's to the good ol' days.
