From the best R&B slow jams to the birth of alternative rock, the '90s gave us some really great music; and for some, it was also the decade where we experienced our first crush.

It was the decade where you got your first taste of young love, your first boyfriend or girlfriend—and, ultimately, that awkward first kiss. If you were a young adult in the '90s, the bulk of your innocent make-out sessions probably took place at some given point in this radical decade.

For children of the '90s in south Louisiana, there were teenage hangouts, skating rinks, parents going out of town, school dances, house parties, and dead-end parking that provided the prime make-out setting; and more times than not, there was music on in the background.

Whether it was popular here on local radio or just part of that mixtape that you got from your big brother or sister, there were certain songs that never failed to set the mood and we managed to gather some of the top selections for the ultimate '90s make-out compilation.

Just watch out for the braces.
