Maybe gabrielle plans to post this when she gets to 1996, but just in case, I thought her obit post of this song deserved a repost here. Good music.





By the way, I got to see another gabrielle, Gabrielle Roth, perform too. An interesting new agey music and rhythm therapist, musician and promoter. Roth discovered Sharon, according to gabrielle's obit post.

Yes, for those like me who don't appreciate grunge in its original form, the piano version of the Soundgarten song was nice.

Now something from the timeless band hailing from the 1970's and going in the 1990's.  Here's a psychedelic vid.

So, yeah, a 1970's flashback.





Best watched after some MJ.

From what I've read, the 100 Days, 100 Nights album came out in 2007.  And it was Gabriel Roth, not Gabrielle Roth, who discovered her, according to the NY Times piece I read--this guy, it seems.

I'm enjoying this guy's stuff.  Here's some thrash metal for you--"Slayer meets Satie," as a youtuber commented on this video.

From Post (1995), my favorite album from Björk, the Queen of EDM.

It makes perfect sense that Björk should be the progeny of an electrician and a fortune teller.  Smile

Not going to be anywhere near a favorite of mine, but at least she can sing and the tune and arrangment are listenable. How's that for a ringing endorsement! But, it seems the female singer trend got a boost from Alanis Morissette and Sheryl Crow and others like her in the mid-90s.

Sheryl Crow was OK.  She was inoffensive enough to appeal to an older generation bemused by the weirder and angstier Gen X stuff. 

Since you mentioned Alanis Morisette, here is a better song.  Plenty weird and angsty.   Smile





It was one of two top 40 songs in 1995 to feature prominent use of the F word (though there might have been some rap songs that did).  Here is the other one:





Edit: "Closer" only reached #41 on Billboard, actually--so not technically top 40, sorry.

Now THIS song from 1993 would be a better choice for kinsers' siggie!

Thanks to Stephen Colbert for directing me to this one. I like it. Big #1 hit. Back to 1987. I don't remember if I knew it back then, but it sounds familiar. Strange for a song that old to have 300 million views on the tube. But there's a reason for this:

Rickrolling[edit]
Main article: Rickrolling
"Never Gonna Give You Up" is the subject of a popular Internet prank known as "rickrolling" involving misleading links (commonly shortened URLs) redirecting to the song's music video.[8] Originally started by 4chan, by May 2007, the practice had achieved notoriety on the Internet, and it increased in popularity after its use as a 2008 April Fools' Day joke by various media companies and websites, including YouTube rickrolling all of its featured videos on that day and a website allowing people to rickroll their friends' phones.[9]

In "a couple of weeks," about 13 million people had been tricked into watching Astley's video, the BBC reported on 1 April 2008. "I think it's just one of those odd things where something gets picked up and people run with it," Astley told the Los Angeles Times in late March 2008, adding: "That's what's brilliant about the Internet."[10][11]

Astley also appeared in the 2008 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade interrupting a song performed by those on a float promoting the Cartoon Network program Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends with a lipsynched performance of "Never Gonna Give You Up."

There were reports that despite the video garnering millions of hits on YouTube, Astley earned almost no money from the online phenomenon, receiving only $12 USD in royalties from YouTube for his performance share, as of August 2010,[12] but Astley denied those reports in 2016.

Here is some more 90s electronica.  

Ed Simons, born 1970, and Tom Rowlands, born 1971, formed the Chemical Brothers in Manchester, England in 1989.  Dig Your Own Hole was their second, and possibly best, studio album.  It released 20 years and a few days ago.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chemical_Brothers

Here are a few cool tracks from this album:


















The following was a No 1 single in the UK (it did not reach top 40 in the US).  It was obviously inspired by "Tomorrow Never Knows," and they actually had to prove to the Beatles' lawyers that the drum track was not a direct sampling.

Portishead, Portishead (1997).  

Long live 90s trip hop.

These are a few great songs but I love the whole album.

More classic trip hop, stateside this time.  

From "Endtroducing," (1996) by DJ Shadow (b June 29, 1972).  According to wikipedia, it was noted in Guinness World Records as the "first completely sampled album."  Perhaps that, along with the album's remote, dreamy atmosphere, explains why listening to this always made me feel nostalgic without really knowing why, or what I was remembering.  "The only pieces of equipment Shadow used to produce the album were the AKAI MPC60 12-bit sampling drum machine, a pair of turntables and a borrowed-by-visiting Pro Tools setup from an early adopter of the technology, Dan "The Automator" Nakamura. In November 2006 Time magazine named it one of its "All-Time" 100 best albums." (more wiki)

Gen Xers outside the USA can make great music! Popular composer and pianist Yiruma (b.1978):





Not sure of the date of this piece called "Hope" though. Actually, first released in 2009.
