Moka's 250 Favorite Songs of the 90's - A selection.

Bookmark Removed

I'm currently compiling my 250 favorite songs of every decade since the 50's. I'm clicking shuffle and choosing the first 50 songs that appear for this poll.

Note: This is poll 4 out of 7.

Only one song per artist but covers/collabs/ghostwriting/sideprojects get a free pass.

I do not recommend listening to these as a playlist but here's the spotify link either way for the adventurous:

"Step On" :-)

The Call the Cops tour literary changed my life. i'm sure the drugs that night had a lot to do with it.

Happy Mondays was a complicated band for me. Hated them with passion the first times I heard them when I was like 15 and 5 years later they clicked and I spent a whole summer listening to them. "Step On" is an obvious choice but it's the one that made me change my mind about them in the first place.

and everything you feel is
alright alright alright alright.

feels so weird to have dee-lite and DOOM in the same decade

Frank Ocean is the Ultimate Solution (rushomancy), Saturday, 17 June 2017 19:23 (four months ago) Permalink

I love Palace but they're missing from spotify. Had no idea the white stripes where around in the 90s

dance cum rituals (Moka), Saturday, 17 June 2017 19:51 (four months ago) Permalink

Either "Electric Relaxation" or LEN.

o. nate, Sunday, 18 June 2017 00:53 (four months ago) Permalink

Probably not the best song on here, but I'm voting for "Cookie Bay" because when else will I have a chance to vote for this track in a poll?

Moodles, Sunday, 18 June 2017 04:02 (four months ago) Permalink

This is spooky, I didn't know there was anybody but me who rated both "Plant White Roses" and "San Diego Zoo" that high on the list of Merritt's recorded output

Though if you really push me I probably swap Zoo for "Dream Hat"

Impossible for me to vote on this, at the very least

Plant White Roses
Groove is in the Heart
Cannonball
Radiation Vibe

are on my short all-time list and then there are others here ("Steal My Sunshine," "Seether,") which so perfectly capture what I liked about the feeling of being alive at that time.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Monday, 19 June 2017 16:46 (four months ago) Permalink

That was kind of hard since I love all those songs, but I went with Elliott Smith. "Angeles" is heavenly.

jterich, Monday, 19 June 2017 20:35 (four months ago) Permalink

Eels - PS You Rock My World

if it was the full poll though, would've chosen Trailer Trash by Modest Mouse

Ha! my 2nd favorite song from him in the 6ths is dream hat. I've seen many people choose 100,000 fireflies over Roses from that MF album but I need to have to be in a particular mood for that one wheres Roses always sounds great to me.

My whole life until looking at Moka's list I thought "Female of the Species" was by Cake. It almost feels like how could it not be?

Guayaquil (eephus!), Monday, 26 June 2017 22:30 (three months ago) Permalink

Haha it does sound a bit like them now that you mention it. One of those songs that are here purely driven by nostalgia.

Throwing 'Polyesterday' (late version) a vote. God I hadn't heard that one in at least fifteen years I think.

cool list
voted LEN

In 1993 or 1994 I switched on 120 Minutes on mtv and they played a song which immediately overwhelmed me completely. That sad voice, that strange mix of folk and atmospheric music. It was like an enlightenment. An existential experience. The song was called "Roads".

Ich bin kein Berliner (alex in mainhattan), Tuesday, 27 June 2017 17:44 (three months ago) Permalink

It seems weird to me how Roads was not a single, it's my favorite on the debut by a long shot... that bass solo,the strings, the organ, the heartbroken performance. Maybe not as obvious a single like Glory Box or Sour Times but it's certainly better than Numb.
