    • 1. The Sign by Ace of Base
      Ace of Base rocked the 90's. Simple as that.

    Half of the songs on these lists are from 2000 or 1999. Cracks me up. These are Real 90's songs. LOL

    • 10. Cannonball by The Breeders
      fantastic chillout song.
    • 9. Glorybox by Portishead
      trip-hop's finest.
    • 8. 32 Flavors by Ani Difranco
      one of the most influential female musicians of the 90s (i like her more than tori amos and fiona apple because she appears to be more authentic and genuine, less prone to amplify her emotional wounds into greek tragedies).
    • 7. Date Rape by Sublime
      funniest lyrics, amazing band capable of mixing different styles of music into a unique fresh sound.
    • 6. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      i'm a hopeless romantic, you're just hopeless. ;)
    • 5. Time Bomb by Rancid
      real punk's least punk band and pop's most punk band. this song just makes me happy.
    • 4. Satellite by Dave Matthews Band
      beautiful lyrics, laid-back tune. dave matthews...
    • 3. Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins
      i worship billy corgan, i love the entire mellon collie album but this song stands out most... perhaps because of the incredible video that they made for it.
    • 2. Long December by Counting Crows
      the 90s melancholy character.
    • 1. Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
      This cover of Leonard Cohen's song is breath-taking. Jeff Buckley's voice and musical skills are amazing, the most intense love song of the 90s, without a doubt.
