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.
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.
10. Stay – Eternal
Finishing on a less pensive note…a proper British girlgroup. Nice.
