What are your top ten favorite songs from the 90s?

    By: The Broken Rattle
    • 10. Milliennium by Robbie Williams
      The Brit-Pop boy shows us that strings and fresh lyrics can make for great listening.
    • 9. Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65
      Just a trippy song with a wonderful piano riff that even my mum likes.
    • 8. I Wish by Skee-Lo
      The music is so hooky that I won't stop listening (if I could find it)
    • 7. The Freshmen by The Verve Pipe
      The build-up and breakdown of the feeling is great. Somewhat Stairwayesque in this manner.
    • 6. Walking on the Sun by Smash Mouth
      Smash Mouth revived the old organ playing of the 60's with this gem.
    • 5. Jump Around by House of Pain
      Just to stay on your feet when this bouncy flow of music hits.
    • 4. All I Wanna Do by Sheryl Crow
      Blue notes (bent notes) are abound in this bluesy song before Sheryl joined Lilith Fair
    • 3. All Star by Smash Mouth
      I used to hate this song until I could listen closely. After hear the guitars on the courus, I was hooked.
    • 2. Closing Time by Semisonic
      Power chords and a beautiful middle section with the piano makes it an instant classic.
    • 1. Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
      Nothing in the 90's touches the Verve's dive into utter passion and beauty in music. Those strings are hauntingly gorgeous.

    Baby Got Back- Sir Mix-A-Lot's hilarious and sassy ode to big butts Albuquerque- Weird Al's 11:23 song on Running with Scissors is the funniest song ever. It hurt to laugh because I was doing it for so long.

      this song rocks.
    • 9. dreamlover by mariah carey
      a great singalong song that was always fun to listen to
    • 8. whatta man by en vogue and salt and pepa
      the rap with the soul was a really great combination.
    • 7. party by christine anu
      a song i heard in australia with amazing pop sounds and it was also a great dance song.
    • 6. dont let go(love) by en vogue
      they were one of the best bands in the 90,s but there come back in 97 was just as impressive
    • 5. diggin on u by TLC
      it wasnt such a big hit but it was still a great song.
    • 4. my lovin(never gonna get it) by en vogue
      the no crap attitude with the strong message and the great pop r& b sound makes it a winner every time.
    • 3. say my name by destinys child
      when it came out i was like i gotta buy that it was just sogreat and what a film clip.
    • 2. hero by mariah carey

      with the sexy beats and the smooth voice of janet it came in to the perfect blend of r&b pop, what a song its my no1

    By: Al Genevois
    • 10. River Of Dreams by Billy Joel
      This great, catchy song was proof that Billy Joel was still top of the bill in 1993. Too bad he hasn't released a new studio album since.
    • 9. Come Undone by Duran Duran
      Duran returned to the top 10 one last time in the 90's with this great song.
    • 8. Strangers Like Me by Phil Collins
      This is one of his recent songs, but it's every bit as good as his classic 80's work.
    • 7. Black Velvet by Alannah Myles
      What an awesome voice! This should have been one of the greatest stars of the 90's!
    • 6. No Son Of Mine by Genesis
      While this may sound an awful lot like Phil's solo work (that's not neccesarily a bad thing, though), this is a true Genesis classic
    • 5. Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer
      I like this band, I think we'll continue to hear a lot from them in years to come.
    • 4. I Would Do Anything For love by Meat Loaf
      Meat Loaf's comeback, this song is gorgeous, maybe even better than Bat Out Of Hell
    • 3. Ordinary World by Duran Duran
      Duran Duran's 90's comeback. This song is a masterpiece.
    • 2. The Show Must Go On by Queen
      Queen at their best. Sadly, this would turn out to be Queen's last release before Freddie Mercury's death a few weeks later.
    • 1. All About Soul by Billy Joel
      The greatest love song ever written. This man is a genius.

    By: Chris
    • 10. Somewhere Out There by American Tale
      This holds some really sentimental tones for me, and shared the movie with someone special in my younger days :)
    • 9. I know him so Well by Chess
      Don't say you guys don't know it, every school ends up playing this in their assembly halls sooner or later and it's one of my favourite duets.
    • 8. Let Me Let Go by Faith Hill & Vince Gill
      I really love Faith Hill and Breathe could go here, but I suppose I also have a soft spot for Vince Gill and Let there be Peace on Earth was my first choir peace, so these two together was great.
    • 7. L.A Song by Beth Hart
      As you'll find out, I love song with stories, and though I know nothing about LA it struck a chord and beautifully sung.
    • 6. Under the Water by Merril Bainbridge
      This is unusually hippy and cooly weird, my favourite Merril one for sure
    • 5. When I die by No Mercy
      Love acoustic Guitar and they use it well here, pity they didn't last long.
    • 4. Jessie by Joshua Kadison
      Though I love also 'Beautiful in My Eyes' this is another great story and especially as they don't forget the cat Moses, when they go escaping.
    • 3. Fields of Gold by Sting
      Love Songs with Stories and this one is my personal favourite from Sting.
    • 2. Mountain by Chocolate Starfish
      Usually Grundge (Which I don't like) but I like this I like heaps, it's a good pickup for work in the morning.
    • 1. At the Beginning by Donna Lewis & Richard Marx
      Ooh this was real hard, there worthy contenders here depending on my mood swing, Crash Test Dummies 'hmmmmm', Little Mermaids 'kiss the Girl' , Sparrows Eye from Lauren Hill (Sister Act II) The Corrs etc.. But this theme song from Anastasia keeps inspiring me.

    Now this ain't a list you see everyday, I would have put some musical songs, but I thought hey, the crowd that read this should at least think I've got some taste :) I went through all the list here and geez they were all 'common!' :) hope you enjoy some diversity.
