oddly enough, a friend an i were talking about this yesterday.
we did some trivia - quoting a lyric and then have the other give the band/song title. pretty fun.

i don't necessarily stand by these songs, but they missed:
collective soul - the one with "heaven let your light shine down" or December
the tony rich project - nobody knows
the eels - novacaine for the soul
live - lightning crashes
stone temple pilots - big empty/interstate love song/plush/creep
snoop doggy dogg - what's my name?
i don't think Ice Ice Baby was on there, but i don't want to reread it.
there's a few.

it seems they missed alternative rock/grunge for the most part.
i actually thought Walking in Memphis was a new song. i never heard it until i started my job 2 years ago. they keep the radio on the adult contemporary station.

oh yeah. what about:
"life is a highway.......i wanna ride it all night long."
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

I just hauled out my Canadian pride on this one.

By the way, Bethie, you beat me to it.  Barenaked Ladies are absolutely NOT one hit wonders (in Canada they've been around forever).
Classic.

haha i remember that life is a highway song. I was a little kid when it came on MTV and I remember getting scared at the scorpion in that video cause it took place in the desert. That video was so dated, and strangely enough it has the look of current country videos.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

you mentioning the desert reminded me of Aerosmith.
those videos starring Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler were all the rage.

here was one of the trivia questions i gave my friend:

"you say, i only hear what i want to"

no cheating and searching for the lyrics online.

Speaking of Hawke, the song he sang also on the Reality Bites soundtrack

One of those songs you turn way up. Also one I have to download.


What about the string of hits Alanis Morissette had from Jagged Little Pill? You Ougtha Know, Hand In My Pocket, You Learn, Head Over Feet, and of course, Ironic.


And Jewel with- You Were Meant For Me, Who Will Save Your Soul, Foolish Games.

AHH. Duncan Sheik- Barely Breathing is a good 90's tune.

I keep remembering other bands. There was Everclear (Father of Mine. I Will Buy You a New Life, Santa Monica)

Eve 6- Inside Out
hahah remember Mighty Mighty Bosstones-..something about having to knock on wood.

Baz Luhrmann's Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen. I still listen to it frequently.


Garardo- Rico Suave. hahah. what a joke that guy/song was.

Jill Sobule- I Kissed A Girl. Supermodel.
The Cardigans- Love Fool
New Radicals- Someday We'll Know. You Get What You Give.
who likes movies anyway

Crazy was the video with both Alicia and Liv. Where as Amazing and Cryin' both featured only Alicia.

u ppl only mention songs from the LATE 90s. that was hardly the defining era.

more nostalgic gems, for pas and anyone else who was alive then:

artist-band (comment)
Robert Miles - children (still holds up)
3T - anything (that's right, MJ's nephews)
Presidents of the USA - kitty, peaches, mach 5.
Deborah Cox - who do u love (my brother really really liked R&B)
Robyn - show me love (revived in Fucking Åmål,  part of what makes the ending so sweet)
La Bouche - sweet dreams
Cee-Lo - i wish
M People - movin on up
Zhane - hey mr dj
Absolutely Fabulous - absolutely fabulous (featuring pet shop boys)
Hocus Pocus - heeeeeere's johnny!
Denis Leary - asshole
Everything But the Girl - missing (i still listen to this track)
Kylie Minogue/Nick Cave - where the wild roses grow
Janet Jackson - that's the way love goes
Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince - BOOM SHAKE THE ROOM!

i think a lot of the songs i remember were more european hits. like, i remember being surprised when i realised Kylie Minogue was NOT a superstar in america (during the 90s).
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

Peaches is a good one. Impressive 90's recollections, P. I have to say the only one that I still listen to is White Town, Your Woman. Besides all the britpop stuff.

What about The Spice Girls? In comparison to the movement in music they gave way to, they were pretty cool.
