A little help choosing songs

I'm trying to make a CD for a friend of mine, but I'm having trouble with the songs. Here's what I have so far:

The Verve Pipe - The Freshmen
Semisonic - Closing Time
Fastball - The Way
Dishwalla - Counting Blue Cars
Third Eye Blind - Semi-Charmed Kinda Life
Wallflowers - One Headlight
STP - Interstate Love Song

...So I'm a bit stuck. I know the Cd is a bit cliche, it's a lot of bigger hits, most often by semi-one-hit-wonders. Nonetheless, that's sort of the angle I'm going for. Or at least, just reconizable stuff.

Please HELP!

..and thanks in advance! (Whoo hay!)

i don't know, but if i were you i'd call it 'commercial radio circa summer of 1998'

and add everclear's 'i will buy you a new life' or 'father of mine'

and the new radicals--you only get what you give
mighty mighty bosstones--rascal king or the impression that i get


that 3eb song is just called 'semi-charmed life', by the way

linkin park, simple plan, good charolette. stuff that's played now as much as those songs were 'back in the day'...

for collective soul i was thinking 'the world i know' in keeping with the '98 theme (however unintentional it was)....run was 2000-something.

those were the days! one off's or near enough indeed...IWB is correct, the equivalents these days are poor in comarison.

Better Than Ezra - Desperately Wanting

Any Live of Throwing Copper would fit this theme, if it's singles you are wanting, I Alone is a bit more in theme than Lightening Crashes or Selling The Drama. I have a severe weakness for Pillar of Davidson but all this may be moot if you dont like Live lol.

If you are looking for '98 specifically, I dont know if these were from that year though...Too lazy to check

I agree. By the way, does anyone else think that Fuel's other hit song (In My Hands or whatever it's called) sounds awfully similar to this song? Still, Shimmer is good.

Oh, and how about Everlong by Foo Fighters?

throwing copper was 1994

(kidding about all those mad faces)


if you were to throw on live from 1998, it would be 'freaks' or 'turn my head'...which i think were late 1997, but that's closer than lighting crashes or i alone...

and that other fuel song is called hemmorage (in my hands). shimmer is good. i liked jesus or a gun better, i think.

better than ezra

bon jovi


everclear-local god. wow...i forgot about that. wasn't it on the romeo and juliet soundtrack or something? i know i've got a live version or two on a tape at home, but i don't remember having it on an album.

can't beleive i forgot these:

-natalie imbruglia--torn
-meredith brooks--i'm a bitch (or whatever the exact title was)
-no doubt--don't speak
-savage garden--truly madly deeply (or that other one...oooh i want you i don't know if ineed you...)
-eagle eye cherry--save tonight (was a bit later, i think. 1999-ish? maybe 98. can't really say i remember)
-harvey danger--flagploe sitta
-blink 182-dammit (i know, they suck. but i had to include it)
-eve 6--inside out
-sugar ray--i just want to fly (again, don't have toe correct title)
-dave matthews band--don't drink the water
-the verve--bittersweet symphony (i used to hear that every single day on the bus to school)
-edwin mccain--(forgot the title...i think it's that 'and i'll be better when i'm older thing...or was that the 'i'm just barely breathing can't find oh yeah don't know why i'm lving' thing? that one too...)
-the bodeans--closer to three
-not zz top...what were they called...'your majesty'....and if you want to buy my flowers, just go ahead now....the name of the band WILL come back to--THE SPIN DOCTORS. there we go.
-whatever bush song was popular at the time. i know there was one. 'come down'? 'everything's zen'? i really can't remember, but i think it was on 16 stone or whatever that album was called. 13 stone? i can't remember
-pearl jam--last kiss and wishlist. definetly wishlist.
-you know what wallflowers song i liked? the difference. yeah. i liked that song. and you know what fastball song i liked better than the way? fire escape. i remember it was the difference between miles zungia (sp? can you really expect me to spell that right? i get points for REMEMBERING a name like that) and tony scalzo's vocals or something.
-and i liked third eye blind's 'jumper' and 'how's it gonna be' better
--SISTER HAZEL--hard to say what it is i see in you wonder if i'll always be with you words can't say...and so on. i used to get that mixed up with 3eb--semi-charmed life. i remember the days when i thought those were rock songs. HA. pop songs.

wow. when i went to post this, i had only remembered the first two i mentioned. from there on my brain just spewed everything i could remember from ~1998. heh. i need to get a life or something.
