    • 10. Bitter by Remy Zero
    • 9. Zombie by The Cranberries
    • 8. Requiem for a Dream- Main Theme by Klint Mansell

      Subtextual song with weird lyrics that also spills with melodic passion.

    Though this may not be my favourite songs of the 90's -it would take about a month to figure them out they are a reflection of the songs of a calibre everybody should strive to make.

    • 1. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      My favorite song ever! Love the lyrics, the music, everything. There's just something about it

    So many songs I could have put, Alanis Morissette had a lot of good ones, she started a lot of the "girl power", 'Dreams' by the Cranberries, 'Mr. Jones' by Counting Crows, Fastball songs, Fuel, 'You Get What You Give' by the New Radicals (what happened to them?), No Doubt, Sheryl Crow, 'I'll be Missing You', Silverchair, Soundgarden,'One Headlight by the Wallflower, on and on the list goes!

    • 10. Faster by Manic Street Preachers
      Awesome song, Jimmy Dean Bradfield in a balaclava attracting world record number of complaints for top of the pops
    • 9. I Try by Macy Gray
      should have been 'take another piece of my heart'-Erma Franklin but it was probably out earlier
    • 8. Maceys Day Parade by Green Day
      could have been basket case, good riddance, longview or when I come around
    • 7. Killing In The Name Of by Rage Against The Machine
      Is there any better feeling than driving around with this on full blast 'f*ck you'
    • 6. He Got Game by Public Enemy
      Greatest rap song ever
    • 5. Lucky by Radiohead
      Could be any early radiohead, have they dissappeared up their own a*se or is it me being too lazy to get into them now?
    • 4. Prince Igor by Warren G
      the Marriage of rap and classical, they said it would never last- what the f*ck do they know
    • 3. Aneurysym by Nirvana
      Every one chooses a nirvana song, this is mine
    • 2. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      An under rated classic, does anyone hate this song, nearly brings me to tears yada yada yada etc.
    • 1. Motorcycle Emptiness by Manic Street Preachers
      Probably the only perfect song ever written 'itemised loathing and feed yourself smiles' and so many other great lyrics- perfect

    These are the first songs in my head and if I thought again it would be another 10

    • 3. If You Could Only See by Tonic
      Great song, I dont know anything else really by this band but hell they hit it hard right there.
    • 2. Just To Be The Next (To be with you) by Mr Big
      Got to have some big hair bands in there. best stuff ever.
    • 1. Mr Jones by Counting Crows
      Just a song that makes me want to get up & move. The Crows best song

    This is just what I think, it seems to be alot different than everyone elses on here. But I'm weird & proud of that
