10. Twenty One Pilots - Heathens // Suicide Squad
9. Action Bronson - Standing In The Rain // Suicide Squad
8. Rihanna - Sledgehammer // Star Trek Beyond

I enjoyed these three tracks but they don't add much to the scenery.

7. Ellie Goulding - Still Falling For You // Bridget Jones' Baby
6. Pink - Just Like Fire // Alice Through The Looking Glass
5. Imagine Dragons - Not Today // Me Before You

Three cool pop songs that I find myself singing every once in a while.

4. Florence & The Machine - Stand By Me // Final Fantasy XV
Florence delivers an amazing rendition of this classic. Love how she made it her own.

3. BRONZE MEDAL: Mogwai - Ether // Atom
A very intense instrumental soundtrack.

2. SILVER MEDAL: Shakira - Try Everything // Zootopia
Shakira knows how to do it. The lyrics are nice, it should have been bigger.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Justin Timberlake - Can't Stop The Feeling // Trolls
Instant song, the kind of song you listen to and know it will be a hit. And the Oscars show highlighted the carefree and fun side of it.

Image

10. 1975 - The Sound
I love the colours and think it is effective in its message.

9. Coldplay - Adventure Of A Lifetime
Yep, even a monkey will dance to this. Well done.

8. De La Soul feat. Snoop Dogg - Pain
No groundbreaking, but it fits the retro sound of De La Soul.

7. Avalanches - Because I'm Me
A sweet video that catches my attention.

6. Imany - Silver Lining (Clap Your Hands)
A beautiful song and a cheerful video.

5. Alle Farben feat. YOUNOTUS - Please Tell Rosie
My heart bleeds whenever I see the child expression at the beginning. Touching.

4. Dawid Podsiadlo - Pastempomat
Great video, simple but soooo effective. Love the wierdness of it.

3. BRONZE MEDAL: Chemical Brothers feat. Beck - Wide Open
I tend to love the simple "guy/girl dancing" kind of videos... although they are everywhere since Chandelier. This is a cool approach and fits the song.

2. SILVER MEDAL: David Bowie - Blackstar
Everything is superb. I think it is amongst the best videos of all time.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Beyoncé - Formation
The whole Lemonade project deserves Video of the Year. She even improved herself after Self-titled.

Image

10. Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons w/ Logic & Ty Dolla $ign feat. X Ambassadors - Sucker For Pain
9. Kenny Chesney feat. Pink - Setting The World On Fire
8. Weeknd feat. Daft Punk - Starboy
7. Janet Jackson feat. Missy Elliott - BURNITUP!
6. James Blake feat. Bon Iver - I Need A Forest Fire
5. De La Soul feat. Damon Albarn - Here In After
4. Cyndi Lauper feat. Alison Krauss - Hard Candy Christmas


3. BRONZE MEDAL: Coldplay & Beyoncé - Hymn For The Weekend

2. SILVER MEDAL: Chemical Brothers feat. Beck - Wide Open


1. GOLD MEDAL: Beyoncé feat. Jack White - Don't Hurt Yourself

Without a doubt, the amazing collab between Bey and Jack takes the gold medal. Both of them outside of their comfort zone for me but still flawlessly merging power.

Image

10. BØRNS
9. Gallant
8. Jack Garratt
7. Billie Marten
6. Aubrie Sellers
5. Jon Bellion
4. Troye Sivan


3. BRONZE MEDAL: Shura

2. SILVER MEDAL: Lion Babe


1. GOLD MEDAL: Laurence Fox

I think all of them have a lot of potential and will deliver gold medal material in a future. Laurence released a very solid album and his Chris Martin's style cought up my attention. It will be a problem in a future if he doesn't evolve from that, but this year he was my fav. Very good year for new artists all in all.

4. 1975 - The Sound

3. BRONZE MEDAL: Chemical Brothers feat. Beck - Wide Open

I don't really comment much but I try to tune in once in a while.
Great effort! Must say that I'm not too familiar with 90's Country but it's always great when Alabama, Sawyer Brown and Travis Tritt are acknowledged. And wow, have you seen all those mullets! :D Confederate Railroad is fantastic!

Thanks trebor!
I started this last year and i am really fond of it although i know this is not really something many others will follow! But it is a great register of music from my years. I already have some years done, right now I am listening to 2017 but next will be 1995, and my plan for this year is to publish here 1992/1993/1994 and then 2017. Ill finish in 20 years lol
Nothingfails did something similar and this is kind of my version of it.

thanks for always be supportive! u r one of a kind!

(Aww!) 8-)
I like the idea of a music journal very much! In ten years (etc.) from now, you will be glad you created these moments in time.
(Personally, I wouldn't know where and how to start)
As far as I'm concerned, you inspired me to go to listen to Tori Amos (listened to "Crucify" which is great), House Of Pain and review the Beastie Boys! :D

one question (me again :wink: )
how can multi million selling corporate act be alternative (and to whom)?

1992 was in the terms of quality and quantity one of the best years ever for alter/indie music
(first releases for Radiohead - Creep and Suede - the Drowners)
a few truly alternative from that year
The Breeders - Safari
Drop Nineteens - My Aquarium
Pain Teens - Shallow Hole

My favourite (semi) dance/electronic song of 1992
New Fast Automatic Daffodils - Stockholm

btw PJ Harvey's Dress is 1991

i use Wikipedia's articles "Albums released in XXXX" as a basis to listen and track albums

then Alt and Rock are going to be controvertial each year because i find it hard to differentiate those sometimes

And for me Alt does not mean non mainstream. In 90s alt was everywhere.

indie are generally categorized by me as Alt

My eligibility timeframe is oct 91 - sep 92 and always oct-sep

Checked the links, good but wouldn't highlight them but i am a little too mainstream, i know that

Took a while but here are 1992 winners!

Image

10. The Prodigy - Everybody in the Place
9. Deee-Lite - Runaway
8. Chic - Chic Mystique

The three artist have better efforts, in the past or in the future, but still these are quite good.

7. Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy
When I was revisiting the year and run across this one I thought this was an instant Gold medal. But eventually was ranked seventh. Still, this is a classic and deserves some recognition.

6. 2 Unlimited - Get Ready for This
Another classic! It was quite an interesting year.

5. Rozalla - Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)
4. Soul II Soul feat. Richie Stephens - Joy

It was hard to leave these two with no medal. Rozalla already has some UKMix love in many survivors.
SIIS was a great discovery with a game I hosted, The Artist's League, and this song is very 90s dance music. Second time they got nominated, this has been the better year end placing for them.

3. BRONZE MEDAL: CeCe Peniston - Finally
2. SILVER MEDAL: Snap! - Rhythm Is A Dancer

Another couple of classic 90s dance songs. Snap! is fire, a song you listen to 2 secs and already identify it.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Erasure - Love To Hate You
Ok, I danced to this in my teenage years. Erasure were a great dance pop artist back then.

Image

6. The Prodigy - Experience
Mainly Everybody in the Place is the highlight, the rest are fine.

5. Deee-Lite - Infinity Within
Highlight: Runaway, I Had A Dream I Was Falling Through A Hole In The Ozone Layer, Pussycat Meow, Come On In The Dreams Are Fine

4. Chic - Chic-ism
The album starts cool with Chic Mystique, Jusagroove and One And Only One then falls

3. BRONZE MEDAL: 2 Unlimited - Get Ready!
Get Ready is joined by Twilight Zone, The Magic Friend and Workaholic

2. SILVER MEDAL: Brian Eno - Nerve Net
Fractal Zoom, Ali Click and Disturbed Being.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Erasure - Chorus
Probably the more pop album of the dance section. Chorus, Breath of Life, Love To Hate You and Turns The Love To Anger shine.

10. Legião Urbana - O Teatro dos Vampiros
A good brazilian act.

9. Diego Torres - Estamos Juntos
Diego's debut single, while he was still a TV star in Argentina. Estamos Junots is a nice ballad, showing his potential but still lacking impact.

8. Jon Secada - Otro Dia Mas Sin Verte
Another ballad. The 90s was all about ballads for Latin America. Jon Secada was a Gloria Estefan protegee that came as a storm and this song was very catchy.

7. Los Pericos - Me Late
A very fresh and fun song. Los Pericos invaded all argentinian parties during those years.

6. Café Tacuba - Las Batallas
BAck when Cafe Tacuba were still more of a local act in Mexico, later they would conquer Latin America. More alt sound,

5. Ricky Martin - El Amor De Mi Vida
A fantastic ballad. Ricky's voice was kind of bland back then, later on he will improve that.

4. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs - Carnaval Toda La Vida
I thought this was going to get a medal but eventually had to leave it at number 4. Fantastic fun song.

3. BRONZE MEDAL: Joaquín Sabina - Y Nos Dieron las 10
Joaquin's poetry and lyrics captivated a whole generation in Argentina. This is one of his signature songs.

2. SILVER MEDAL: Luis Miguel - No Se Tu
This had Gold Medal written all over the place but eventually has to settle with a Silver one. The album Romance was a perfect move for Luis Miguel, who already was big and after this was the King of all kings. This style conquered all generations and genres. He was always more of a "for girls" act but here he broke that. Talented singer.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Fito Paez - El Amor Después Del Amor
Fito at his best. The atmosphere around this, the chorus, the backing vocals. It is just a perfect song about how to keep on after a very important relationship in your life ends. Frindship after love, caring, loving from another perspective. Beautiful.

Image

6. Los Pericos - Big Yuyo
Party songs one after the other: Hacé Lo Que Quieras, Me Late and Eu Vi Chegar as highlights

5. Café Tacuba - Café Tacuba
A very interesting debut album. All songs 1-7 are great, Promising start.

4. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs - El león
Carnaval, Manuel Santillan and Gitana are amongst the best 90s argentinian tracks of all time.

3. BRONZE MEDAL: Joaquín Sabina - Física y Química
Y Nos Dieron las Diez, Conductores Suicidas, Yo Quiero Ser Una Chica Almodovar, A La Orilla de la Chimenea. Poet and great lyricist. Amazing album.

2. SILVER MEDAL: Fito Paez - El Amor Después Del Amor
El Amor, Dos Dias en la Vida, Tumbas de la gloria, La Rueda Magica, Brillante Sobre el Mic, A Rodar Mi Vida. They are all classic argentinian rock tracks. Fito Paez at his creative peak, but he always delivers.

1. GOLD MEDAL: Luis Miguel - Romance
A very well crafted collection of classics: No Me Platiques Mas, Inolvidable, La Puerta, La Barca, Usted, Contigo en la Distancia, No Se Tu and Mentira.
