All in all, these were and still are some pretty great songs. They bring us back to our embarrassing middle school days. We all remember playing these songs on repeat and trying to learn the lyrics to impress our friends. We haven't heard form some of these artist in years. But it's time for them to come back and make some more great songs. Until then, I guess we'll just have to listen to 'Closer' being played on the radio every half hour.
