Hits of the '90s is a ten-song budget collection of hits released on EMI or Capitol in the '90s. Some of these songs were very big hits indeed. EMF's "Unbelievable," Us3's "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)," Charles & Eddie's "Would I Lie to You," and the Proclaimers' " (I'm Gonna Be) 5,000 Miles" were all pretty big. The rest, like Donny Osmond's "My Love Is a Fire," Jesus Jones' "Real, Real, Real," and Vanilla Ice's "Play That Funky Music" also did pretty brisk business. However, none of the songs apart from the Proclaimers really stand the test of time, giving this collection a very dated feel.
