These were the summer jams you probably downloaded from LimeWire. And yes, music was sooo good back then.
Eminem, “The Real Slim Shady”
The first single released from Eminem’s third album, The Marshall Mathers LP, peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song and its accompanying music video started his infamous feud with Christina Aguilera.
Where you probably heard it most: On TRL, which played the video nonstop, despite the fact that it made fun of all the other artists whose music videos they played.
Aaliyah, “Try Again”
The song was the lead single released from the soundtrack to her film Romeo Must Die; it peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song would later be included on her final album, 2001’s Aaliyah.
Where you probably heard it most: On the burned mix CD you made from songs you downloaded from LimeWire.
