• 90's Part One - The Playlist

    So starting a blog post series about all things 90's seemed like a good idea at the time!  Little did I know just how much awesomeness it would uncover.
    As this is such an epic topic, I have had to absolutely cut it all down to what was relevant to me, at the time… So while you may have been into 2Pac or Sinead O’Connor, well I wasn’t, so here’s what I personally loved and can actually remember about being a teenager in this amazing decade. Starting with 90's music... the rest will come later.
    I realise now that anyone younger than me may not understand any of this... I recently asked a 15 year old if she knew who Courtney Love was... and she didn't... I think I need to write a book.

    90'S MUSIC

    Press play on the playlist above while you read this, or better yet, download this playlist and go for a drive, bring out that 90's Teenage Girl for just 1 hour (and 22 minutes)…Sooooooo much goodness such as The Superjesus (ok song released in 2000 but hey, close), The Breeders, Sonic Youth, The Eels and Killing Heidi!

    Yes... of course I was, and still am - a massive (huge) fan of Jane's Addiction, Incubus, No Doubt, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, RHCP, Stone Temple Pilots, Sound Garden and Smashing Pumpkins – so so many good bands came through the 90's and they don't even need to be mentioned as its kind of obvious they are great... 
    BUT you don't need to hear that playlist as you probably already have your own version of it...am I right?   While Most of the music on My 90's Spotify Playlist stayed in the 90's...(some one or two hit wonders) these were the songs that absolutely hit me in the heart...

    If you haven’t sped off on a spur of the moment roadie listening to K’s choice, Veruca Salt, Candlebox or Skunk Anansie, you may not get all the feels, it may just be noise to you... 
    Maybe Alanis Morrisette, or the Cranberries sounds more familiar?  Similar vibe.

    If you can't listen to the whole thing, here are 2 of the best songs...
    Oh the nostalgia actually hurts, these songs still get me, turn the volume way up!!!

    Waiting for your favourite song to come on the radio so you can press the record button on your cassette tape took forever, it was good we had something to do though as there was no way of knowing if your friends were going to turn up or not anyway.  
    No wonder we all smoked, we had so much time to waste waiting and wondering... 
    Teenage angst was a real thing, and it wasn't because the WIFI wouldn't connect…

    Fiona Apple

    There will be nothing said here about Britney Spears, The Spice Girls, TLC,  ("ducks and Runs for cover"), Smash Mouth or Ace Of Base... I will however mention cool girls Fiona Apple and Lauryn Hill.

    Lets just leave this here… I know I am not even scratching the surface, I could write for days about 90’s music… good and bad!  Think Blindmelon and Savage Garden, The Wallflowers and Weezer, Soul Asylum, and Blur… it's actually a never ending list! 
    I should have just picked one year, not a decade.
    Pretty hard to pick a year in the 90's though huh.

    Coming later (not soon!)... Part two 90's Fashion, Part three Movies and more 90's radness...
