Forgotten 90's music
« Thread started on: Jan 22nd, 2017, 1:21pm »
Since the 90's became its own little era from the past I find myself re-listening some of those obscure 90's songs and bands that fell out of memory of music history. Hey, I can't help it, I am a 90's kid after all
The last couple days I remembered this obscure song and I just ordered the CD maxi:
I knew that song from a "Crossing All Over" compilation I had borrowed from a schoolmate back in 1999, I still have it on some old cassette tape. I didn't even know there was a video to that song; you can't find too much information about that band, from all I could find they had one album and that's it, the few other songs I found are all nice but nothing special. So it's just one more short-lived band that didn't make it. Still, that song has something that makes it stuck in my ear.
It still feels weird for me that stuff like this is from a bygone era already - it's music from the last millennium! Then again, imho today's pop music has evolved very straight forward from the 90's, this music from 20-25 years still would fit in perfectly in today's radio pop.
Here's another one I just found on youtube, I've known only one song from this band but I didn't know this - again one of those releases that fell in between and went straight into obscurity:

I love plenty of obscure stuff from the 90s, but I'll pick something that actually was a hit and then disappeared. This is a single by Dionne Farris. There is another version of this song on the CD that has a lighter touch and is actually better, but this is the one people will remember. The coolest thing on this album is a groovy version of The Beatles' Blackbird.
