I already did a top 100 countdown of the 90s about one and a half years ago but was never really happy with it. So I decided to do a new one! To make the countdown more diverse each artist can only chart with one song.

Glad my fave Shania Twain song made it :wink:

Tracy Chapman on No.100 is far too low, considering it'll be her only song to make it... but I guess her best were before the 90s :-?

No Diggity and Again are great classics

Yes, she's more of an 80s artist who had a comeback in the 90s with this song. :wink:

Think that I will comment on one of your threads for a change, Benny!!!

Obviously we all have our own tastes in music, but for me, the 1990's were a great decade for good solid rock - Nirvana, Blur, Oasis, REM, some of Michael Jackson's stuff in the nineties was more rock orientated than anything else.

I hope that your list will eventually reflect that.

My favourite tune from the nineties is probably Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit - released in 1991, really set the tone for the whole decade.

As I say, we all have our different tastes, of course.
Can't live without my music.

Well you can expect some 90s Alternative Rock like Live, REM, Collective Soul, Gin Blossoms etc.. Music was so diverse in the 90s, that's what I love about that decade!

96. You're Still The One - Shania Twain (1998) - Re-discovered this a few months ago. It's a great song, one of Shania's best.

91. Where The Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue (1995) - listened to this alot in the last few days :o It's an awesome song, my favorite from Kylie's 90s singles

90. Good Vibrations - Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch (1991) - This is just okay.

86. Hero - Mariah Carey (1993) - Never understood why this was such a big hit, it's good but didn't deserve to be huge. Mariah has (a few) better.

84. Don't Speak - No Doubt (1997) - One of my favorite songs from the 90s, it's just amazing! :D

83. Missing (Todd Terry Remix) - Everything But The Girl (1995) - Just okay.

Great job so far! :D

Great batch especially Soul Asylum and No Doubt. I bought both of these singles which lead me to buy their albums (Grave Dancers Union) and (Tragic Kingdom) :D
