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!

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