  • Singer Lisa Loeb performed in a '90s throwback concert on Tuesday
  • There are some trends from the '90s she hopes won't return

(CNN)The '90s will always hold a special place in Lisa Loeb's heart.

"I'm a very sentimental person," Loeb told CNN. "I love thinking about the past. I have very clear memories, but I also like to keep moving forward."
    Loeb's 1995 hit "Stay" was the heartbreak anthem for teens at the time. She returned to the stage to sing that song and more on Tuesday during a throwback concert sponsored by Crystal Pepsi. En Vogue, Biz Markie and Salt N Pepa also headlined the event.
    "I didn't feel comfortable doing something lumped in with the '90s," Loeb said. "But I finally do feel comfortable. [The audience] can take a lot away, have their memories, and it's also very current too."

    Loeb said performing with the other artists who also rose to fame in the '90s has widened her circle of friends. "Like Coolio, he's in my phone and he's my friend. Those are cool friends to have in your phone."
    While she's enjoyed the recent revival of '90s music, Loeb said she doesn't want to revisit the fashion trends of that decade.
    "I don't want mustard yellow mock turtle necks to come back although, they kind of are," she said. "The oversized leather jacket! Someone just posted a pic of me with it on Facebook. Ugh! And wearing pajamas under them from Army Navy, or a bustier with cut off shorts. No."
    But the smart phone free culture of the '90s, Loeb loved. "I miss -- from the earlier '90s -- when there were no cell phones. There was just a little bit of a slower pace and less input. More room for creativity and pondering life. I think we are very distracted in this new world and we want to capture everything."
