30 reasons why 1989-1995 was the best period for music EVER

(1) Inner City - Good Life




(3) Blur - To the End




(5) Dubstar - Not so manic now




(7) Pet Shop Boys - Se a Vida E




(9) Seal & Adamski - Killer




(11) The Stone Roses - Sally Cinnamon




(13) The Shamen - Boss Drum




(15) The KLF - What Time is Love?




(17) REM - Country Feedback




(19) Nine Inch Nails - Head like a hole




(21) Manic Street Preachers - Motorcycle Emptiness




(23) Hole - Doll Parts




(25) Smashing Pumpkins - 1979




(27) SL2 - On a Ragga Tip




(29) Sinead O'Connor - Fire on Babylon




I didn't include U2, that would be cheating. But come to think of it, U2 were great between '89 and '95 too!

Every single one of those is a slice of pure sonic brilliance, and I could easily post another 300.

I honestly don't think there's been a better period for music, in my lifetime.

I tend to agree, in certain moods. Not necessarily about all the songs above, but about the general time period. I also should mention 'Last Train to Transcentral' by the KLF.

Props for not mentioning any grunge (TM) bands. Nirvana were a good band, but that whole 'movement' looks more and more irrelevant in retrospect.

Of all the REM songs to choose from during that stretch, you chose Man on the Moon and Country Feedback?

HADDAWAY? You're kidding, right?

I remember loving that "Move Any Mountain" song back in college.

I like St. Etienne - are they still putting out music?

That would be correct. I did indeed choose those particular aforementioned songs of all the REM songs from that particular period.

Well, I did pick a song by Hole and a song by Alice in Chains.

I don't dislike Nirvana, or Pearl Jam, for that matter, I just think there was better stuff made in that period, including within the grunge genre.

I honestly think that song by Hole is better than anything Nirvana put out, though I assume it was very much inspired by Cobain's memory, or whatever.

Taste in music is pretty individual, ultimately.

Well I think that Haddaway song is a great single.

I don't know about St Etienne. Would assume they are still releasing music.

I blame that SNL "head bopping skit" (if anyone posts a Youtube of it, I will kick them in the shins; seriously - there's no need for it here) for ruining the song.

But I have more than my fair share of great pop/dance singles that I love, so I hear you.

Thanks for clearing that up and taking me just that literally, I appreciate it.

The one that takes me back to high school is the second one on my list. funnily enough I really hated it when it first came out.
