I didn't see a thread about this so redirect me if you absolutely have to. I really liked the music in the 90's. It was the time when I was growing up so I was very familiar with it. There were a lot of one-hit wonders in the late 90's like Barenaked Ladies - It's All Been Done, One Week...Natalie Imbruglia - Torn....Shawn Colvin - Sunny Came Home....and a lot more. I haven't heard anything from these people since then. This was right before hip hop and rap became what it is now and everything else went to crap. Enjoyed it while it lasted.

Right before selling out sold out?

I love 90's music.  Very diverse in influences, a lot of great music came from this decade.

I'm always able to make a new mix of songs I loved from the 90's without ever repeating a band.  I have 4 full CD's, so far.  And so rarely do people not recognize the song...

The only songs some people didn't recognize were:

Silverchair - Tomorrow
Primitive Radio Gods - Standing Outside A Broken Telephone Booth
Nada Surf - Popular

I talked about it more specifically in this thread: http://www.xixax.com/viewtopic.php?t=6979&highlight=

What about Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffany's, or Stabbing Westward or Dishwalla or Nada Surf or Butthole Surfers or Harvey Danger or Presidents of the United States of America. Damn, good stuff.

Awesome. A good friend of mine and I always talk about singles we remember from the 90's then we'll quickly go home to download the songs we had forgotten about. On the way home from Denny's once Counting Crows- Mr. Jones came on the radio, do I even have to tell you that we drove around a few more blocks so we could all have a sing along?

90's music is what I know. Edie Brickell- What I Am just started playing on my playlist.

Fun pop bands like Gin Blossoms and Spin Doctors. Who doesn't have a soft spot their tunes?

Crash Test Dummies- Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm (whenever I went to someones house back in 10th grade I would make them download this song if only for a laugh)

Ace of Base, what? I Saw the Sign. All That She Wants.

Four Non Blondes- What's Up?
Jamiroquai- Virtual Insanity
Blessed Union of Souls- I Believe. I Wanna Be There. Let Me Be The One.
Toad and The Wet Sproket- All I Want
Mr. Big- To Be With You
Del Amitri- Roll To Me
Better Than Ezra- Good
Soul Asylum- Run Away Train

There's always your Hootie and The Blowfish, Collective Soul, And Blues Traveler. And your Salt N Peppa, En Vogue...
who likes movies anyway

Wow..

Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train" brings back some memories for sure.

Same thing with the Toadies "Possum Kingdom". Anyone remember the Toadies?

I've been listening to (and am currently listening to) "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" by Bryan Adams for a past month.  I've listened to it about 100 times.  Not because I'm crazy, but because I have to perform it.  Like an air-band performance, but solo.

That's today, actually.  So this morning I've just been playing it over and over again, getting all the random screams of love and guitar bits right.

I'm goin' all out, bros.  I've got a big jump and kick a chair in mid-air move that I've got set.  It should be good.  It's my one last hurrah before school's over.  It'll give those bastards something to remember me by.

then this is for you.

Rhino to Release 7xCD 90s Box Set

Remember the 90s? If you're reading this, chances are you lived through most of it. If not, you're truly precocious; five-year-olds should not be reading Pitchfork. The 90s provided an explosion of music-- some outstanding, some less than stellar. One-hit wonders crowded the scene. Grunge happened. Kris Kross happened. Ahh, yes, I remember the 90s fondly.

Well, in cased you missed it, or haven't seen VH1's "I Love the 90s", Rhino has come to your rescue. Whatever: The 90s Pop Culture Box will be released on July 26, spanning seven (yes, seven) discs of grungy, poppy goodness.

It kicks off with a bang with MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This". Other artists include Mother Love Bone, Deee-Lite, Boyz II Men, Right Said Fred, My Bloody Valentine, Pantera, Soul Asylum, House of Pain, Duran Duran, Dinosaur Jr., Tag Team, the Posies, Pavement, Ween, Crash Test Dummies, the Flaming Lips, R.E.M., Weezer, Blues Traveler, Oasis, Jewel, Stereolab, Jamiroquai, Wilco, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Sleater-Kinney, Hanson, Barenaked Ladies, and, of course, Chumbawamba. The set ends with Moby's "Natural Blues". Maybe a better title would be From Hammer to Moby in 130 Steps.

Interestingly, artists like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Madonna have been left off. But who cares about "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Vogue" when you've got "Virtual Insansity" and "Walking in Memphis"? The set will also come with an exhaustive 84-page companion book with photos galore, notes on each track, and contributions from a number of music critics, including Jim DeRogatis.

Hmm i think they should've stopped focusing on being ecelectic and focused on good music, like Butthole Surfers - Pepper or Presidents of the...- Peaches. That is essential.

That Rhino 90s box set is worthless without Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Maybe they couldn't get the rights to the music or something, but those are two bands that defined a generation of music in the early 90s. Also absent is anything from Radiohead or the Beastie Boys. What about Public Enemy? Those guys spawned hundreds of present day rappers.



Just a lame list.

that set just gave me a massive mid-90s flashback. they've still managed to miss out on the semincal classics:

the real 90s artist-song
Dr Alban - Sing Hallelujah
East 17 - House of love / Deep / Alright / west end girls
EYC - Express Yourself Clearly
Real McCoy - Another Night / run away
BABYLON 5 - SPACEMAN!!!!!
White Town - (i could never be) "your woman"
Twenty 4 Seven - slave to the music
Snow - informer
Culture Beat - mr vain
2 Unlimited - No Limit
Sonia  Dada - you don't treat me no good
DOOP - DOOP
ace of base - (as bethie said) the sign / all that she wants (first song)
OMC - HOW BIZARRE (new zealand group i assume went global with this hit)
boyz II men - end of the road
Sukiyaki - 4am
Bone thugs n Harmony - tha crossroads
Seal - kiss from a rose
K's Choice - i'm not an addict
Meatloaf - i would do anything for love
The KLF - 3AM ETERNAL / (and) JUSTIFIED AND ANCIENT (featuring tammy wynette)
Jordi - "Dur Dur D'Etre Bebe" (pas u should know this one)
New Kids on the Block - dirty dawg (their last big hit)
Taylor Dayne - can't get enuff of ur love
Crystal Waters - 100% pure love
Tevin Campbell - can we talk? (for a minute, girl i waaaant to knooow ur name)
Inner Circle -  sweat (a la la la la long)
Warren G & Nate Dogg - regulate
Big Mountain - baby i love your way
UB40 - can't help falling in love
Del the Funkee Homosapien - Mistadobalina

that's about 10% of the best of the early 90s.

seriously, i would defend the 90s to tbe bitter end. a true 90s fan would not just list what's good now. the early 90s were a magnificent period of discovery and experimentation in pop sensibilities. almost all of these experiments failed, in retrospect, but dammit i LUFFED them.

Check out "The Buzz" CD set. It's got a great 90's mix of mellow rock and alternative.

And everyone neglects "Standing Outside a Phone Booth..." when they talk about great 90's rock.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Because it was kind of a shit song.
This was when they decided they needed a more radio-friendly trip-hop sound.  The album was even worse (yes, I had the album).

Why are all these lists full of shit bands?  The Gin Blossums?  SilverChair?  I thought only little kids liked that crap.

Nirvana, PJ, RHCP, Radiohead, NIN, Portishead, Rage, Dre.... these are all givens.

Does anyone remember Headbanger's Ball?  That and the good hip-hop was where the early nineties was at.

The Toadies had good shit going on at the time... The Burden Brothers keep the same shit going today.

And why?  why? why would anyone ever bring up Walking in Memphis again?  oh fuck, I thought I had that out of my head forever... so terrible.

i miss headbanger's ball. we had the european one with the hot chick called vanessa warwick. she had these boring three hour specials about death metal bands you'd give a rats ass about. one time she had a exclusive pearl jam interview. an interview that was the only one they had granted at the time. they were going through so tough times then. the american was okay but i don't remember the host's name. um, ricki rachtman? i also miss the rap show. dr dre and fab five. aw man, those were the days!

Wow. Totally. I remember just blasting this song in my bedroom..

Another band left off that list.

Metallica "Metallica".

That's a huge miss.
