it's so odd, and awesome, you can't go wrong with lou barlow.
flagpole sitta - harvey danger
no working link to this one i'm afraid. although i'm sure you all know it by heart. this song contains one of my favourite lines of all time "if you're bored then you're boring" i would salute if it were to run it up a flagpole.
much like "laid" this song is often somewhere in my mind. i would however always forget the name, fortunately this song is what made me start this list and i haven't forgotten it since i started brainstorming.
mmm disco lemonade, and when i was a young teen this song was dirty, i mean it comes right out and says "sex" egads! saw these guys live at their peak, first show i ever went to alone, opened up for everclear, ah eleven years ago, i was so young. save tonight - eagle-eye cherry
i learned to play this song on guitar just to make the girlies swoon.
i disliked this song greatly as a kid, pretty much because my mom overplayed the hell out of it. now that i'm older i recognize that is has a unique sound, and it makes me miss the pissed off chick music of the 90s. speaking of...
nobody wants to be a disgraced cosmonaut (although i for one would rather sail the cosmos than the stars) this song still gets radio play, because it's that damn good. circles - soul coughing
kind of cheating with this one as well, i suppose super bon bon, was a hit as well, possibly even bigger, this song just found me as i was developing a good taste in music i suppose, and i keep el oso in regular rotation. even though he mellowed out, mr. doughty still puts out awesome music. better days - citizen king
and what better way to to end this than with a great song from 1999? much like emf, i'm sad this is a sound that never caught on, "mobile estates" is an album worth listening to. and researching this list i was excited to find the lead singer has a new band. if the internet is to be believed anyway.
trying to find videos for this was more frustrating that it should have been. what exactly would record companies be losing by letting people embed videos?
