90s, baby (part 3)

We continue...

1. Down So Long - Jewel

I went through a major Jewel phase freshman year.

2. Tubthumping - Chumbawumba

Bizarre, infectious, and oh so very 90s....

3. Mmmbop - Hanson

Probably my favourite 1990s boyband. I wore this whole album out!

I was such a cool kid. ;)

4. Don't Speak - No Doubt

Another album I adored.

And this is still one of the best break-up songs ever, IMHO.

5. Lump - Presidents of the USA

Just a massive, massive tune.

6. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

That intro.



The other guy.

The video.

I remember watching this on MTV (waaaaaaay back at the start of the nineties when we lived in Germany and still had cable) and thinking WOAH. I still feel that way.

7. Scar Tissue - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Squeezing just in to the end of the decade.

8. Losing My Religion - REM

"Oh, Life,
It's bigger,
It's bigger than you, and you are not me...."


9. Driftwood - Travis

My second favourite Travis song.

My absolute favourite is 'Flowers In The Window', but that's not a 1990s track!

10. Let's Talk About Sex - Salt N Pepa

I knew all the lyrics to this when I was eleven.

I understood maybe a third of them, hee! It's a bit like the movie 'Grease' - I watched it when I was wee and thought it was cute and quirky and fun...then watched it again and realised it was full of innuendo. Ah, the innocence of youth!

  1. 11! I heard it at 14 and I'm still not sure I understood everything. Maybe I still don't...


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
