Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. It's a fun way to share your favorite music with other bloggers and hopefully introduce them to so truly kickin' tunes :)
Alright, this is quite possibly the hardest week for Tune in Tuesday yet. This time around we were given a theme and I definitely struggled. We were asked to focus on 90’s music… which I happen to love. I was born in 1990, so I have a ton of memories centered around 90’s music. I pretty much love it all – the pop, the rock, the alternative, the grunge… the 90’s were just so much fun. Needless to say, I have a HUGE selection of songs for you this week. Honestly, when I was making a list I had about 100 songs… so please understand how much I tried to narrow it down for you. I hope you enjoy your 90’s mix tape, courtesy of That Bookish Girl. I hope we are doing this next week, that way I can make a B-Sides list!
1. Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit (1991)
This song is the 90’s. I don’t know how anyone can talk about 90’s music and not immediately think of Smells Like Teen Spirit. I enjoy a lot of Nirvana music, but this is kind of their crowning moment. Oh, and p.s. has anyone heard the Tori Amos version of this? It’s incredible! She takes it in a completely different direction and it’s just so hauntingly beautiful.
2. Oasis – Wonderwall (1995)
I LOVE this song. It’s just so hypnotic and... beautiful. I still listen to this one all the time too. Have you heard the Ryan Adam’s cover of this one? It’s off of Love Is Hell I believe. I’m not 100% sure and unfortunately for you, I am too lazy to check.
3. The Wallflowers – One Headlight (1997)
I have listened to this song 1,000’s of times. I kid you not. I really can’t tell you why I love it so much, I just do. I especially love driving to it… while I scream it at the top of my lungs.But tell me this.. how did I just find out that is Jakob Dylan? Granted, I was 7 when this song came out, but still.. I love Jakob Dylan.
4. Jewel – Foolish Games (1995)
YEEESSSSS. To this day, my best friend and I continue to screech along to this on a regular basis. I try my best not to crack the windows of the car.
5. No Doubt – Don’t Speak (1995)
No Doubt is AMAZING. I love practically every song they put out, but Don’t Speak is one of my favorites. P.S. I want Gwen’s dress from the video.
6. Toadies – Possum Kingdom (1994)
It’s just such a good song. Who doesn’t love a good rape/murder story?
7. Lisa Loeb – Stay (1994)
Reality Bites, baby.
8. Meredith Brooks – Bitch (1997)
Oh, yes. This is kind of my anthem/shower song.
9. The New Radicals – You Get What You Give (1998)
This song just makes me so incredibly happy. How can you possibly listen to it and not smile?
10. Natalie Imbruglia - Torn (1997)
This is kind of my song :)
