the best songs ever: the lost years
Probably the only song by Stone Temple Pilots I liked.  I never really cared for their sound, but this is a pretty good song.  





I never really cared much for Alice in Chains either, but I know many people insist that they are great, even the best of all the grungers, so perhaps there is more to them than I am got out of them.  I will leave that for others to post, though.

OK, maybe I'll post one song.  I like this one, and the video too.  From Dirt, 1992.

Little bit of 60s in the 90s.

From the self-titled 1992 album by Blind Melon:

90s psychedelia--Okie style.  Big Grin

Though Flaming Lips had been around for a long time, with a number of albums under their belt, their 1993 album Transmissions From the Satellite Heart contained their breakthrough hit single, "She Don't Use Jelly."














I remember the first time I saw the Flaming Lips, in a tiny basement bar in St. Louis, just before SDUJ became a hit.  They had none of the colorful props and outrageous spectacle that they would later become known for,* it was just three guys on stage with a modest light show on the backdrop.  I was deeply impressed all the same, still one of my favorite concert memories!  They poured their hearts into that show.  Heart


*meaning, scenes like this

"I take pride as the King of Illiterature."

Nirvana's final studio album, In Utero, released in 1993.  Stranger and darker, yet perversely more pop and melodic.

1993/1994: The Cranberries, an indie/folk pop rock band from Limerick, Ireland becomes one of the biggest bands of the 90s.

From their debut album of 1993, Everyone Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?









And these from their 1994 album, No Need To Argue.

One of their most popular songs here, if youtube view counts mean anything, though all of these songs were hits.  You can hear the influence of American grunge on this one.  

"It's the same old theme since 1916
In your head, in your head, they're still fighting.
With their tanks, and their bombs, and their bombs, and their guns,
In your head, in your head, they are dying."

This is another one from that movie that I really liked. Of course, I have the movie on VHS Smile

Yes, that's my top movie, man. Cool

Yes, it was.  The movie was called Heavy Metal.  It was a close to a musical as an Xer ever gets to.

Ladies that ruled the 90s:  If Tori Amos was the nimble, red fairy queen and Kat Bjelland the merciless demon virago, then Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah MacLachlan was the decade's witchy earth goddess, and her breakthrough international hit came out in 1993.





I always loved this song, too (also from Fumbling Towards Ecstacy):
