Big list idea - Top 1,000 Songs of the 1990s

Postby StevieFan13 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:42 pm

I had a big idea to make top 100 lists of the best/most important songs of each year of the 1990s (commercial success wouldn't be a factor, and I'd have to actually enjoy the track to include it, but significance in its scene or on music in general would be a major part). Naturally, this is a weighty task, so if you have favorite tracks to name from 1990-1999, feel free to give them a mention. I'm using a lot of lists as reference (including - and especially - AM), but getting personal views from y'all could help make the lists more interesting and hopefully add to the amount of world music and diverse genres on each list.
Here are my top songs for each year:
1990: Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U
1991: Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
1992: R.E.M. - Drive
1993: The Breeders - Cannonball
1994: TLC - Waterfalls
1995: Oasis - Don't Look Back in Anger
1996: Fiona Apple - Criminal
1997: Foo Fighters - Everlong
1998: Lauryn Hill - Doo Wop (That Thing)
1999: Blur - Tender

In addition, here's (roughly) the top songs from other decades. Keep in mind, this is still a hybrid of my personal favorite and the song I personally find the most important of that year, so if the results aren't totally in line with my top songs from the decade polls, that's why.

2007: M.I.A. - Paper Planes
2008: Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over
2009: Jay Z feat. Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind

1980s:

1986: The Smiths - There is a Light That Never Goes Out
1987: The Cure - Just Like Heaven
1988: Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
1989: Public Enemy - Fight the Power

1970s:
1970: The Beatles - Let It Be
1971: Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
1972: Stevie Wonder - Superstition
1973: Roberta Flack - Killing Me Softly with His Song
1974: Bob Marley and the Wailers - No Woman, No Cry (Live)
1975: Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

I bet you're not asking us foreigners to give you a list of what we consider the best 1990s songs from all over the non-English speaking world? Because I warn you I could get to it for days... :D

For France specifically, though, you can already just take a look at the France music topic from Romain. He regularly (i.e. at the start of each new page of topic) sums up the songs he posted there in chronological order, so you can easily have a quick overview of his own selection for the decade.

I'll do that, but, nutty as it sounds, I am asking exactly that.

Okaay... (rubbing my hands :mrgreen: )

No, seriously, I'm not that erudite, but while I'm collecting some recommendations, since you seem to like hip-hop, I'd say the first stops for you are L'École du micro d'argent by IAM in French (songs: "Nés sous la même étoile", "Petit frère", "L'Empire du côté obscur", "Demain c'est loin"...) and Ser humano!! by Tiro de Gracia in Spanish ("El juego verdadero", "Viaje sin rumbo", "Leyenda negra"...). My recommendations will probably more be on the pop-rock side. That's what I've listened to the most from this decade.

Postby StevieFan13 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 10:30 pm

Keep these coming! Having a blast finding new stuff to listen to. If I'm going to be specific, I'm looking for:
- '90s hip-hop besides the obvious (I'll probably use XXL's list of '90s songs for help with that)
- Alt-rock (any kind, any language)
- Songs in French, German, Italian, Portuguese - local sounds, basically
- Songs by women
- Jazz, maybe?

Techno isn't really my thing, but there might be some worthwhile stuff in there. For that, I might stick with the obvious (Daft Punk, Underworld, etc.). Really, just hit me with what you've got

1990: Pet Shop Boys - Being Boring
(Btw, The Sundays - My Finest Hour)
1991: Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
(Btw, Queen - These Are the Days of Our Lives, Sting - Why Should I Cry for You)

1994: The Cure – Burn
(Btw, Neil Young - Driveby)
1995: Joan Osborne – St. Teresa

Cocteau Twins – Heaven or Las Vegas. 4 stars/5.
This band is a miracle. Like a cross between the Cranberries at their least petulant and Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. Key track: It's track #10. I can't pronounce it.

1. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
2. R.E.M. - Country Feedback
3. A Tribe Called Quest - Scenario
4. Geto Boys - Mind Playing Tricks on Me
5. Soundgarden - Rusty Cage

7. Bonnie Raitt - I Can't Make You Love Me
8. U2 - Mysterious Ways
9. Primal Scream - Move On Up

Of course, there's plenty more to listen to where that came from (gonna do my best to hear all the songs you've recommended so far!)

Postby StevieFan13 » Mon Aug 14, 2017 11:40 pm

Also, my honest top songs (not taking into account the whole cultural importance thing) would probably be:
1990: They Might Be Giants - Birdhouse in Your Soul
1991: Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
1992: R.E.M. - Drive
1993: Beck - Loser
1994: Soul Coughing - Screenwriters Blues
1995: 2Pac - Dear Mama
1996: Fiona Apple - Criminal
1997: Sixpence None the Richer - Kiss Me
1998: New Radicals - You Get What You Give
1999: Blur - Tender
So, y'know, still pretty consistent, but it unintentionally leans a lot more toward white dudes (which I'll admit is quite unfortunate), so I gotta diversify a bit. That's the ever-present drawback of liking indie rock as much as I do.

1994: Headless Chickens - Cruise Control (Eskimos In Egypt Mix)

I've assembled some stuff from France (plus Switzerland and Belgium, I guess), Spanish-speaking countries and Japan that I've been listening to all these years of searching for foreign lists. There you have it.

I've linked as much videos as I could (with the best quality I could find, and sometimes it's poor), but a lot of these should be on Spotify if you have the same catalogue as here.

The language barrier has never been a problem for me. Music is music! Only problem with the rap songs, excited as I am to hear them, is that I'll only be able to judge the flow and the beat, and I won't know of any whack lyrics (maybe that's the point lol).
The more the merrier! I'll start with 1990 songs and work my way through.

1998: Absolute Beginner - Füchse
1999: Tocotronic - Jackpot

Honorable mentions:

1994: Die Sterne - Universal Tellerwäscher
1995: Maurizio - M04A; Tocotronic - Drüben auf dem Hügel; Tocotronic - Freiburg
1996: Maurizio - M06A; Maurizio - M06B; Fettes Brot - Jein; Tocotronic - Die Welt kann mich nicht mehr verstehen; Die Sterne - Was hat dich bloß so ruiniert; Tocotronic - Racist Friend
1997: Maurizio - M07B

Hi StevieFan,

I don't know if you are still interested but after doing a bit of a think, I added some more songs to the post above with YouTube links.

It's a pretty good cover of NZ 90's music!
