I am true to my generation... a 1990's fanatic, if you will.
I especially love how its music can bring me back in time. As I get older, I realize what the artist was trying to say... reaching levels much deeper than its catchy melody and chorus.
At some point while I was jamming out to my Ace of Base Pandora station, using my fist as a mic, and belting out the lyrics loud enough for my poor neighbors to hear, I started to listen a little closer...
Then I thought- holy hell! They produced some genius lyrics... no wonder I love them so much :)
I thought I would share with you a little hand-picked wisdom from some of my favorite Ace of Base songs... followed up by a playlist, of course. Enjoy!

"Life is a paradise."
"You can do what you want- just seize the day,
What you're doing tomorrow's gonna come your way.
Don't you ever consider giving up,
You will find... IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE."
"And the man will die, but not his ideas."
"We're much too young, and life's so big...
We don't know yet what the future brings in its hands for us.
What tomorrow brings, the future knows."
-Young & Proud
"No one's gonna drag you up
to get into the light, where you belong."
"I'm a prisoner of hope, I know."
"People are the same today as they used to be;
The same expectations, so high no one can reach that high.
Not I nor you get satisfied today.
We'll never get enough."
-Living in a Danger
"Live for yourself, it's a wonderful thing.
You can do what you want,
You can live in a dream."
