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
The other guy.
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
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!
