10 Classic Songs And Albums Released In The Same Year As The First Friends Episode
If you're in the middle of binge-watching Friends, you might be surprised to learn that all these classic songs and albums were released alongside the TV series two decade ago.
1. TLC - 'CrazySexyCool'
TLC's second studio album, released in November 1994, has sold over 23 millions copies worldwide. The first series of friends, which premiered just one month earlier, had over 24 millions viewers in the US in the period it was originally shown.
2. Boyz II Men - 'I'll Make Love To You'
Boyz II Mens 'I'll Make Love To You' defined music in the year of '94 having spent 14 weeks at number one of the Billboard Hot 100. Friends is not low on achievements either, it's been nominated for 62 Primetime Emmy Awards altogether, with Courtney Cox aka Monica being the only member to never be nominated.
3. Warren G Feat. Nate Dogg - 'Regulate'
Can you believe both Warren G and Nate Dogg's classic track and one of the world's most popular sitcoms both turn two decades old this year?
4. Outkast - 'Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik'
Before Monica and Chandler were even a couple (remember the days of Richard and Janice?) Outkast had put their debut album 'Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik' out to the world.
5. Aaliyah - 'Age Ain't Nothing But A Number'
It's hard to tire of hitting play on Aaliyah's debut album and its title track 'Age Ain't Nothing But A Number', just like it's seemingly impossible to bore of watching those 'Friends' re-runs on Comedy Central.
6. Ini Kamoze - 'Here Comes The Hotstepper'
'Here Comes The Hotstepper' was Ini Kamoze's only number one single in the US, fortunately for Friends, they found more consistent success. By the last series each of the six stars of the show was earning $1 million per episode.
7. Mary J Blige - 'My Life'
When 'Friends' was released in 1994, Mary J Blige was already a household name and in the process of promoting her second studio album 'My Life.' 20 years on, Mary J is releasing a brand new album. Can we ever expect a 'Friends' reunion?
