    • 4. Venus As A Boy by Bjork
      After a stiff departure in the 80's from the cult fav Sugar Cubes, "Debut" debut was moving

      How could you have live in the world and not been present to watch Eddie Crowd Surf and your first impression was?

      The Chili Peppers opus, and the grand finale of the album a true testament to the vibe in the 90's

    • 10. Ants Marching by Dave Mathews Band
      Any song made by DMB is quality its just that i chose this because it was his biggest hit.

    anything by the red hot chilli peppers, dispatch, O.A.R., etc. . . is quality music but they only gave me 10 choices of songs - from the 90's, too. i couldn't mention any lynyrd skynyrd, jimi hendrix, tom petty, phish, and so on. anyways, give all these songs a listen. you won't be disappointed. and if you want me to give you a longer list of good songs you can email me and i'll send you some songs.
