1. I Want It That Way" by Backstreet Boys:

"I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys is an iconic '90s pop anthem that continues to get attract new fans every day (let's be honest, the parents sing it to their kids when it comes on the radio). Its catchy chorus, romantic lyrics, and signature harmonies make it hard to resist singing along.
