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

    By: Hart
    • 10. Bodies by Smashing Pumpkins
      My favorite Pumpkins songs are Ava Adore and Pug..but their too recent, i think....this is my favorite one of their earlier songs because of its tricky lyrics ("no bodies never knew, nobodies, nobodies fealt like you, no bodies"
    • 9. I Got Id by Neil Young, Eddie Vedder/some Of Pearl Jam
      this was a great start for Eddie and Neil. At least, a great way for them to start doing music together. And its very OBVIOUSLY sad which is a change for Neil. And it has a beautiful sond coming from Neil's guitars.
    • 8. Scat Music(?) by Scat Man Jones
      ...this is the WORST song of the 90's..but watching Bevis and Butthead SAY it was the worst made it the best song they ever made fun of.
    • 7. Everything Zen by Bush
      To (sort of)quote Gavins shirt at the 1994 MTV Awards "f**k BUSH IN 2004"...oh, and the song is one of my favorites. but why dosent the band have a greatest hits yet? 4 CD's...at least 11 hits...DAMN YOU GAVIN!!!! Dont leave music for the Movie screen...please? And why would Nigel leave and the band take the time to find another guitarest if there not going to be putting out any new music? The song, it reminds me of U2 first coming over to the states, being accepted on a larger scale.
    • 6. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      ok, i like the "live from the ten spot" cd(s) better than August and everything after, but no matter how i hear Mr.Jones I'll never be able to pick a favorite version.
    • 5. Deep by Pearl Jam
      this is a very strong song...and thats why its here instead of nothing man...
    • 4. Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana
      Did I really have to say it was by Nirvana? Kurts first blatent love song....of the 90's....
    • 3. Farewell And Goodnight by Smashing Pumpkins
      Why...why...why didnt anyone put the smashing pumpkins on their top ten?? hmmmmm?
    • 2. 'round Here by Counting Crows
      This is the first song i learned to sing...and i love it still. Its sad, catchy, and the line "well, there is a girl on a car out in the parking lot, she says man come on, just take a shot...cant you see my walls are crumbling? and she looks up at the building, she says "Im thinkin'a jumping" she says shes sick and tired of life, well everybodies tired of somthin... round here, she is always on my mind, round here, hey man, look at me, cuz i got a lotta time" is my favorite line.
    • 1. Sappy by Nirvana
      ....just hear it, their best song ever(my oppinion, remember?)...if you can find the cd (NO Alternative, its a CD for AIDs prevention) its a pretty good one. I dont know what to say here...it is, after all my favorite song...so I cant really describe it

    No, I dont have anything else id like to mention....But...does anyone have the Nevermind CD? if you do, then look in the liner notes booklet, Kurts telling all of you just what id like to say with his finger............................................................................................................f**k YOU!!!........
