Country House was better than Roll With It, I suppose
Lol! I am one of a rare species that liked both bands

Of course, Spice Girls were number one for me

Britpop

i preferred Country House but Oasis were better in my opinion

Euro 96 when England lost to Germany on penalties, i was only 10 at the time and when Southgate missed it was like the end of the world. Just to make it worse they played 'Everybody Hurts' at the end credits

but it's not all doom and gloom. 1990's ruled

esp 1994-97

plus in 1995 i heard my first ever U2 song and loved it - Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me

oasis, blur, AND spice girls...i liked them all. haha.

the 90's is a definitive era for me because that's when i was in jr. high, high school, and college. i LOVE the 80's too but i can't relate to it as well as i can with the 90's. but it's hard to feel "nostalgic" for the 90's because it seems like the 90's was only yesterday. for some reason, 80's music sounds really "dated" but 90's music still sound fresh to me.

I also thought Countryhouse was better than Roll with it.
I remember Noel Gallagher being really grumpy and saying that if Roll with it had been a Beatles song it would have been a classic.
Duh! Of course it would have. Every Beatles song is a classic because it's Beatles. Oasis however, were not Beatles, but I liked them anyway. I liked both Oasis and Blur.
Damon looked better than Liam though...

I tried thinking about fashion in the 90's, but all I can remember is the retro 70's clothes that were considered cool at some time, and lots of brown and orange. Dull fashion, but I'm not as ashamed of that as I am when I look at pictures of myself in 80's clothes...

Edit to add: Hold me Thrill me Kiss me Kill me was the first U2 song I had on CD. It was on a compilation from the 96' Brit Awards. That's how I got into them.

I forgot about Clueless(1995). Great film.

And I also forgot to mention Smashing Pumpkins - great stuff.

The grunge look - ie jeans, lumberjack type shirts was big around the time of Nirvana as was that deconstructed look on the catwalks where people wore outfits made up of several bits of other outfits of all different textures.

I was just going to mention this...there may never be a media circus the magnitude of that ever again...even the Michael Jackson trial couldn't compare to the now legendary OJ trial.

well, the only times I cried over football weren't in the 90's... euro 2000 1/2 finals portugal - france and of course the final of euro 2004

but the feeling it's the same

maybe I should have been born 10 years before... the 00's kind of suck... and I could attend ZOO tv and popmart shows...
