    By: Andrew Martinez
    • 10. In Your Room by Depeche Mode
      Depeche Mode at it's sexiest. Sexiest Song ever written.
    • 9. One by U2
    • 8. Barrel of a Gun by Depeche Mode
    • 7. Take A Bow by Madonna
      I love her.
    • 6. Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode
      Pure and simple. Depeche Mode at it's finest.
    • 5. Tomorrow by Morrissey
      Never get tired of this song.
    • 4. Rain by Madonna
      Beautiful song by Madonna. So many to choose from her, but this one is my absolute fav.
    • 3. Ordinary World/Come Undone/Love Voodoo by Duran Duran
      All three Duran Songs from "The Wedding Album" are superb and never sound dated. Awesome trio.
    • 2. Lemon by U2
      This song reminds me of my first love.
    • 1. World In My Eyes by Depeche Mode
      This song kicks my ass everytime I listen to it. Most romantic song ever written. Martin Gore scores another classic.

    The best music in the 90's came out during 90-94. The rest of the decade went to crap.
    By: RickyC
    • 10. Incarcerated Scarface by Raekwon
      this song is about 5 minutes of rae flowing, without pausing for some crappy r&b chick to call him boo.
    • 9. Right Here (human nature remix) by SWV
      this song is the essence of 1993 which was a phenominal year for music, third only to 92 and 91
    • 8. Freak Me by Silk
      as you can tell, i am a big R&B fan
    • 7. Creep by Stone Temple Pilots
      remeber when alternative was good?
    • 6. Cooleyhighharmony-1st side by Boyz II Men
      5 very sensual songs-Ohh Ahh may be the best
    • 5. Warning by Notorious BIG
      Grimy Hip Hop at its finest..a very underrated cut
    • 4. Come As You Are by Nirvana
      I keep trying to tell my pops that Nirvana was = to the Beatles, but Kurt alone is the best of all time in Rock
    • 3. Down Low by R Kelly
      no way you cant hook up if this song is on...no possible way
    • 2. Black by Pearl Jam
      early 90's, Sarasota Fl, the cool breeze, Black....
    • 1. Nothing But A G Thing by DRE
      The essence of gangsta rap

    The 90's had the best R&B ever...its so underrated and never played on any stations, and I have no idea why. The beautiful voices and simple lyrics are timeless-email me if you agree
    By: Mike
    • 10. Joey by Concrete Blond
      Plaintive and heart-wrenching.
    • 9. Least Complicated by Indigo Girls

      Off the underrated second album.

      A friend of mine let me on to Sloan -- don't like anything else, but LOVE this song.

      Rocking bitter fun.
    • 1. California by Rufus Wainwright
      Fun and bitter.

    By: Fred Mikeson

      Not his greatest song but the one which introduced him to the scene so it goes down on the top 10.
    • 9. You Can't Touch This by Mc Hammer
      It seems so funny to listen to it now but its a classic.
    • 8. Gone Till November by Wycleff Jean
      Good song to mellow out to.
    • 7. Children by Robert Miles
      Possibly the greatest dance tune of all time!
    • 6. I'm Gonnae Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers
      Sneaking in a Scottish Band. This song is quality when you're in a bouncing mood.
    • 5. I Wanna Be A Hippy by Technohead
      At the time it was the best song about and will always be remembered by me at least.
    • 4. Angels by Robbie Williams
      I know its out of context with the rest but there's so many great songs by robbie! I chose this one though.
    • 3. Changes by 2pac
      A clssic that everyone should own
    • 2. Ghetto Superstar by Mya & Odb Feat. Nas
      Great Song but not quite as good as puffy.

      Everyone loves this song. Its superb.

    This was done from memory so it may not be very accurate.
