Freddy was at the peak of his popularity around this time, while the others were a little old hat.

I thought Doctor Casino was at least somewhat aware of pop in 1991:
Is there a name for that genre of turn-of-the-90s pop-rock with the positive vibes, huge guitar leads, and gated drums?

he was saying upthread that he didn't recognise a lot of the songs, is the only reason I said it

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 7 May 2012 20:23 (five years ago) Permalink

Kylie didn't enter back into the US charts until 2001. Though I was under impression that her only song that charted in the 80's was Locomotion but "I Should Be So Lucky" and "It's No Secret" apparently did as well.

Efua's "Somewhere" was my favourite song of 1993 at the time. A much bigger song in Australia than in the UK, I have no idea why:

Instead of the YouTube links, you guys wanna explain briefly why they should or shouldn't be forgotten? I'd love read a few words on "Don't Shut Me Out," fer instance.

I heard "High Enough" at CVS and "Second Chance" on the easy ilstening station last week.

Can I take a moment of your time to rep for a global mindwipe of Ace of Base.

I just can't. I can't I can't I can't.
I even youtubed a link to post and then felt like a war criminal so I found something else instead.

The Freakytrigger crew commented ably on the goodness of "The Sign."

The rest is kinda crap.

I prefer the darker "All That She Wants" to "The Sign," tbh.
