Those 90s hits

Post by New Creation on Fri Mar 17, 2017 1:43 pm

Back in the mid to late 90s, I really enjoyed some of the alt-rock and pop-rock that hit the radio waves. I worked in a lot of restaurants during that time and heard so much music. Some of those hits really grew on me and I'm very nostalgic about them.

Some examples are:

Love, LOVE that Kenny Wayne Shepard. When I programmed a classic rock station I added that song to rotation.

For me, it would have to be early 90's when I first started working in Top 40 radio so none of it is really rock. Some that come to mind:





And while I was looking for the video for this song I found this video haha



As for rock I also enjoyed Metallica's black album, anything from Tom Petty, Juliana Hatfield (which I haven't listened to in years I need to pull her CD out and give it a spin).

Another band I liked during the 90's was Superdrag. Not very well known but they were from my hometown of Knoxville, TN. I went to high school with the singer, John Davis. While not friends we knew each other and discussed music a lot in class. He was in my art class. I was a senior when he was a freshman. He later became a Christian artist and has some fantastic solo songs. I found his e-mail address and emailed him a few times. He sent me a copy of one of his solo albums which was great. Here he is with Superdrag:



And while this isn't a 90's song, it does have that 90's sound. This is from one of his Christian albums:

Yep, I agree some fantastic tunes. I think on the way home from work I will listen to that John Davis album. Then this weekend I will put some of the songs from this thread on my iPod.

I suppose this is for the "lighter" alternative rock, therefore i'll refrain from posting stuff like Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, Offspring, etc.

This track brings so much memories Smile . This was a big hit in 1999, at least here in Finland.

This one has a personal story... While not a well known song, I laugh whenever I hear it. Back in 1992 or 1993 I was a student at the University Of Tennessee. I was in Communications and for one of our classes we had to work at the radio station WUTK "New Rock 90". They played college rock. It was a 125 watt FM non-commercial station. So they had no commercials, only underwriters and listener support (it is still that way now). We worked one 2 hour shift each week. My day was Thursday. 

Thanksgiving break was coming up so I asked the teacher (I refrain from calling him a professor because he was a grad student) what we were going to do for Thanksgiving Day. He said we needed to be there or make arrangements to  have someone fill in for us. My slot was 6AM-8AM so I would be the first person of the day. The station was not 24 hours, it signed on at 6AM and signed off at 1 or 2 AM. So I always signed it on at 6AM every Thursday.

He posted a schedule for that day and being the trooper that I am I drove from my parents house to sign the station on. Then 8AM rolled around and no one showed up. I made a few attempts at calling people but no one, not even the teacher would answer the phone. So I sat there for another 2 hours. 10 AM rolled around and still no one showed up. I made some more phone calls, still NO ONE. By this point I was getting mad. So I put this CD single in the player, hit repeat and walked out:



I guess you could say I was mad at the girl who did NOT show up that morning so in my mind I was playing this song for her, especially the line "she gotta be the stupidist girl I've ever seen" hahaha.

Now remember, I said this is a 125 watt station (I think it has more power now). It covers most of downtown Knoxville and UT campus but not much else. So by the time I got back to my parents' house the station was out of range and I could not hear it 30 miles away. I went about my Thanksgiving Day and didn't think anything of it. A high school buddy was home from the Navy on break. That evening he suggested we drive to Gatlinburg. So around 9PM on Thanksgiving night we decided to drive to Gatlinburg. I told him what happened that day and we thought it was funny. When we got in listening range we tuned in to WUTK and low and behold the same song was STILL playing! We got a good laugh out of it. Apparently I was the ONLY person that showed up that day. It played until the first person came in at 6AM on Friday. I explained to the teacher what I had done and that no one showed up so I put the song and repeat and left. He understood.

It's from the "In Stereo"-album, which sold 800 000 copies in 2000. I remember the video had some rotation in MTV back then.

My wife is a school teacher and over spring break she was making up new seating charts. Says she needs to keep the talkers seperated. So I thought of this song:

Several bands/songs spring to mind when I think of the 90's.  Most of them grunge era bands from the Seattle area (mostly because that is where I was living and going to the clubs watching many of them perform).  But several more radio friendly songs spring to mind as well.

For me the few songs that were good from that period where killed by over play and the rest are flat out terrible. SOOOOOOO not a 90's fan
