Man, I miss the 90's. Not because of those shiatty songs but just in general, it was a great decade. i do admit to digging the Aerosmith song, mostly because of Alicia Silverstone.

Glenford: What a terrible list. Some better songs from 1993

A Tribe Called Quest - Award Tour

Depeche Mode - I Feel You

James - Laid

The The - Dogs of Lust

Suede - Metal Mickey

Tool - Sober


I don't think the list was supposed to be good - only memorable.

I don't have crocs  or a cardigan but I did wear flannel and have frickin' blue high top Doc Martens. I was a sophomore in high school so that list brought back some good memories.

I'm just happy to still be here. I'm excited for these songs to be 50 years old.

Being an 80s teen, the 90s confused me until I found Alanis Morissette.

I never wore flannel. I did have some doc martin's though.

/isn't it ironic?

you know which other songs are 20 years old?

every other song from 1993.

No idea what you're talking about.

It's kind of weird to think "I Would Do Anything For Love" is the same age as all those others. It just seems like one of those songs that has been around since the beginning of time.
 
2013-06-28 11:23:08 AM
More shocking:  Except for the hip hop, these songs are still being played on "alternative" radio stations that just can't let go.  Old hip hop is never aired on radio stations around here.  Hip Hop stations care nothing for nostalgia, and most of their listerners weren't even born when these songs came out.

Start from 1993, a small 7-year hop to 2000 - that same hop is now 2007, which is recent history.

1993 is actually not that long ago; but things go out of fashion so quickly, it distorts our perception of time.

 The Carpenters and Carly Simon (who were chart toppers in 1973) seemed about a million years in the past in 1993.

ha
speaking of 90s: currently listening to mp3s on shuffle, the last song was a pearl jam song (a much newer one, from the backspacer album), and now HUM's "stars" from "you'd prefer an astronaut", which is still a seriously awesome song!

Happy Birthday!  20 years ago today the top of the charts was held by Janet Jackson's "That's the Way Love Goes."  I don't know if that's a good or bad birthday present...

I'll go out on a limb and bet you were in your 20s in the '90s? It's great to be in your 20s is the correct conclusion.

I used to listen to stuff like this:

http://www.discogs.com/Various-Art-Core-Trippin-On-Techno-Trance-Rav e/ release/1224197

Can't listen to it anymore because I keep imagining the beautiful lithe 20 something women that danced to that transforming into middle-aged joyless harpies...

Same for this song...

I was one of the lucky ones whose parents auctioned off a kidney to purchase a Gateway computer and paid for AOL dial up. I remember trading porn on BBS...ohh and erotic story shiat.

I gotta agree with Mugato too, the 90's in general was a great decade.

Hip-hop ages less well than other genres. I'll let you study it out as to the reasons why.

In general you are correct about all hip hop, though in particular the first reason on the 90's that jumps out to me is the whole Explicit Warning / 1st Amendment right to say "Gimme Dat Nut" or "1-8-7 on the m*therf*ckin cop."  But you'd think there's be a cross between listenership and marketing opportunities for the very best hip hop, much in the way we (blah Boston radio) get the best Motown mixed in on oldies or easy listening stations.  Yes, 40 years from now I'll yell at the grandkids that they don't get any ice cream if they keep touching that radio dial.  I gotta jam to my phat beats, yo.

I was still a teenager when that album came out and we didn't have internet service. That video was very important to the 16--year old me, even if the song itself was ho-hum.

i prefer 1991's "leisure"...but "parklife" is what actually got me started on blur

also placebo's "without you i'm nothing" and "black market music" are incredible albums...i'm assuming your name's latter half is in tribute to that band?

Actually, I believe in the reverse. Granted, I don't like hip hop so much. When a song is new and everywhere it is terrible. Then, like 15 to 20 years later the newest songs are so bad that the old stuff sounds better.

You worry too much.

I was still in high school in '93, I distinctly remember hating a fair number of the songs on that list, and loving a few others. Of course I've since come to loathe a few of the ones I used to like due to the fact that one of the local rock stations seems to play them constantly as filler between the latest songs from a few other bands.

Graduated high school in '92. This list takes me back. And listening to Pandora last night after reading this, 3 of those songs came on in a row. Needless to say, I don't listen to too much new music.

I find hate keeps me young too. I was in high school in the same time frame. You try explaining to the other kids that you listen to Jean Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream and Skinny Puppy. Thank the Big Bang for college radio.

1993. Great year. Jurassic Park, Flood of '93 (Okay that sucked but the thunderstorms were amazing), left private school, MTV still had a healthy music/other stuff ratio, Nickelodeon ruled, and I figured out what I could do with those boners I kept getting.

Oh boy... senior year of high school for me.  I will say, however, that I think music is better today than it was in 1993.  Not to say that there wasn't great music then, but there is a greater and richer variety around today.  Also, the internet has made the entire universe of music available... which is mind blowing to a kid in 1993 who had to rely on what commercial distribution channels chose to carry.
