throwbacks

When we saw that #I'mOldEnoughToRememberWhen was trending, we panicked. While we adore being offered reminders of the good old days, nobody enjoys being reminded of the daily passing of time.

Some of the gems we found gave us a good laugh, so we've curated a list of our top 20 favourite nostalgia thirst posts, and if you can't relate to any of them then get OUT of this article immediately.

No young ones allowed. We're off to play Crash Bandicoot on our Playstations and message weird fonts to our friends on MSN. If we get time, we'll send our friends 'luv' on Bebo too.

1. The infamous Nintendo DS in soft pink

2.  Windows XP was the bomb

3. Videotapes were 'taped over' with new shows or films on TV every other weekend

4. Rewinding your cassette tapes with a pencil was perfectly acceptable

5.  The DVD symbol changing colour and whizzing around your screen was strangely hypnotic

6. We'd have laid down our lives to get Bratz dolls, Tamagotchis, Razor scooters or a Nintendo Wii 

7. This one hurts.

8. We desperately needed every one of those Disney movie plates

9. Cartoon Network was where all the good TV was at, especially Power Puff Girls:

10. The world premiere of High School Musical on Disney Channel changed our lives

11. Polly Pockets were our handbags

12. Apple hadn't achieved world domination yet, and Steve Jobs was alive and well:

13. You couldn't just Google someone's contact number, you had to show dedication:

14. We can still see the ad for Bop It on Nickelodeon, it haunts us to this day:

15. Netflix wasn't instantaneous streaming:

16. Weapons were made in your mouth:

17. Limewire was all the rage, and YouTube converter was used to illegally download tunes and burned it onto a CD:

18. Legends of the Hidden Temple was the highlight of TV, and we wanted to join in SO BADLY:

19. There was no under the table Whatsapp message-sending going on, that's for sure

20. Paint was the pinnacle of entertainment:

Those were the days…No Trump, no Brexit, no problem. Just lusting after Zach Morris without knowing what lust actually was, and dialling up the broadband internet to play PC games for hours at a time.

We are well into festival season, which has been speculator thanks to some decent Irish sun.

As Electric Picnic draws closer, we cannot contain our excitement.

But before you get the kicks out, glitter on and rock the double buns, you have to plan what and who you're gonna see at the epic festival.

Lucky for you, we and Electric Ireland have one to pencil into the weekend-long fun.

Electric Ireland clearly got the memo about how much we adore bobbin' to our fav ninety tracks.

They've put together a Throwback Stage line-up and announced that B*witched are to headline. (FAN-GIRL SCREAMING)

 

A post shared by Edele Lynch (@edelelynch) on

We are clearly thrilled with seeing our gals, Edele and Keavy Lynch, Lindsay Armaou, and Sinéad O'Carroll belt out ‘C’est La Vie’. 

We can't forget "Rollercoaster", "To You I Belong" and "Blame It on the Weatherman" which all smashed their way to number one in the English and Irish charts, upon their release.

We highly recommend that you splash that colour and rock the 90s denim ​​​​​​as you dance along to the nostalgia.

Past throwback line-ups brought by Electric Ireland has seen some of our golden oldies like 5ive, S Club Party, Ace of Base, Bonnie Tyler, 2 Unlimited, The Vengaboys and Bananarama. 

If you don't know any of these acts, you're dead to us – joking – but check them out on Youtube as they hold a special place in our heart.

Additionally, for extra brownie points go check out the acts in this year's line-up during the festival.

The full-line up for the throwback fun is due to be released shortly.

Electric picnic will be held on August 31 to September 2nd.

For anyone who managed to secure tickets, I hope you feel the jealousy seeping through the screen.

Hope isn't entirely lost, as some lucky duck will win a pair of weekend tickets by shareing a screenshot of ‘C’est La Vie’ streaming on Spotify using #ThrowbackStage and tag @ElectricIreland on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

May the odds forever be in your favour.
