90s, baby (part 4)

More music from the decade that held my formative years….

1. Paranoid Android – Radiohead

I told ya I could get angsty. Great song.

2. I’ll Be There For You – The Rembrandts

Do you remember how we’d all join in on the handclaps?

Go on…you know you want to:

3. Smooth – Santana ft. Rob Thomas

A stone dead tune.

4. Say It Ain’t So – Weezer

One of my favourite Weezer songs (love the whole album in fact).

While researching this, I learned that Adele borrowed the same chord progression for her song ‘Chasing Pavements’. Every day really is a school day.

5. Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) – The Offspring

This song was everywhere.

Gaining maximum geek/nerd points, I once did a talent show with my guy friends involving a lip-synched routine to this.

My goodness.

6. Basketcase – Green Day

This could fill the floor at Mudd Club quicker than anything I know…

7. Head Over Feet – Alanis Morrisette

I *love* this song.

All my geeky teen heart was to feel like this about someone.

And now I do.

8. No Scrubs – TLC

The other side of the coin 😉

Seriously though, how badass were TLC? Makes me sad when I think of some of the current pop-tarts. Hurrah for the sassy ones, say I!

9. Everybody Hurts – REM

When we lost A, listening to this song over and over and over was one of the things that kept me sane.

Utter beauty. And total sadness. And hope.

In one song.

Genius

10. Stay – Eternal

Finishing on a less pensive note…a proper British girlgroup. Nice.
