Top 100 Songs Meme: 1990 [part 1]
  1. Hold On, Wilson Phillips - Pleasant listening and good KTV fodder... nice harmonies, now that i think of it. Sadly, it never really left a mark in my psyche as something significant.
  2. It Must Have Been Love, Roxette - Liked this song. Excellent for KTV if you can belt the refrain out.
  3. Nothing Compares 2 U, Sinead O'Connor - Ah, another angsty song. Loved Sinead's voice and delivery. Written by Prince, I think. The "2 U" bit gives it away.
  4. Poison, Bell Biv Devoe - Good dance tune. Catchy.
  5. Vogue, Madonna - Catchy lyrics and hook, but never really liked it.
  6. Vision Of Love, Mariah Carey - Uh? I lost interest in Mariah when her vocal acrobatics erased any sense of soul in her songs.
  7. Another Day In Paradise, Phil Collins - a social commentary song, meant to tug at the heartstrings. Felt forced to me, and a little bit too catchy in the hook department.
  8. Hold On, En Vogue - 1990 will forever be known as the year to HOLD ON. Another girl group (with some serious diva factor) sings a song with the same title. Liked this one more though.
  9. Cradle Of Love, Billy Idol - Uh, no. Very pop, not punk or rock at all.
  10. Blaze Of Glory, Jon Bon Jovi - Ah, I think of the Young Guns movie when I hear this... and always sing the refrain when I have to "shot down" my PC. In a Blaze of Glory. I liked this song, but knowing it was made for the movie makes me wince.
  11. Do Me!, Bell Biv Devoe - REALLY? 11th place? How come I don't remember it? And no thank you Bell, Biv and Devoe.
  12. How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, Michael Bolton - Excellent KTV fodder. And I actually had his album. It fed my angst during those years. Oh, the shame.
  13. Pump Up The Jam, Technotronic - Haha! Dance music. I enjoyed this one.
  14. Opposites Attract, Paula Abdul - I think of the dancing animated cat here, and remember them raving about how great it was. Didn't really like the vid. Or the song, now that I think about it.
  15. Escapade, Janet Jackson - Catchy and fun. Like.
  16. All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, Heart - I liked this song. Interesting refrain, given the context of the verses. I think that it caused a furor in the U.S. because of the storyline.
  17. Close To You, Maxi Priest - Uh? Was this a re-make of the "Why do birds" song?
  18. Black Velvet, Alannah Myles - I liked this song. She was a belter, and a sultry one at that.
  19. Release Me, Wilson Phillips - Similar reaction to the number 1 song.
  20. Don't Know Much, Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville - nice vocal performance, but the tsismis regarding something goin' on between the two singers was more intriguing.
  21. All Around The World, Lisa Stansfield - I don't remember this.
  22. l Wanna Be Rich, Calloway - I don't want to remember this.
  23. I Remember You, Skid Row - Well, I don't remember you.
  24. Rub You The Right Way, Johnny Gill - Er... no thanks, Johnny.
  25. She Ain't Worth It, Glenn Medeiros Featuring Bobby Brown - When did these songs play on the radio?
  26. If Wishes Came True, Sweet Sensation - "..."
  27. The Power, Snap - Double "..."
  28. (Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection, Nelson - *scratches head*
  29. Love Will Lead You Back, Taylor Dayne - I know this one! Yehey! And it was one of those songs that sounded iffy on radio but probably rocked in person.
  30. Don't Wanna Fall In Love, Jane Child
  31. Two To Make It Right, Seduction
  32. Sending All My Love, Linear
  33. Unskinny Bop, Poison - I think Tom liked this one a lot. I don't remember it. Maybe if I heard the intro.
  34. Step By Step, New Kids On The Block - Corinne denies she ever liked them. I didn't like 'em at all. Thank god some of them tried their hands in other fields.
  35. Dangerous, Roxette - Not quite so memorable for me.
  36. We Didn't Start The Fire, Billy Joel - Yes, I liked the clever history lesson. I also liked the video.
  37. I Don't Have The Heart, James Ingram - You rock, James Ingram. Incredibly difficult to emulate the style and the soul of the singer.
  38. Downtown Train, Rod Stewart - I love the song, and I like the singer. Fed my angsty years too.
  39. Rhythm Nation, Janet Jackson - Enjoyed this era of Janet! Plus, my sister says the dancing & choreography rules!
  40. I'll Be Your Everything, Tommy Page - Hm. I'll pass.
  41. Roam, B-52's - Fun song. Half-funky and half-anthemic for parties.
  42. Everything, Jody Watley - nah.
  43. Back To Life, Soul II Soul - I loved this song! Go, Soul II Soul! I wish I still had a copy of this.
  44. Here and Now, Luther Vandross - I remember I did like this song. Sad, yet optimistic.
  45. Alright, Janet Jackson - Janet Jackson ruled in the video for this! Along with all the other dancers from bygone eras.
  46. Ice Ice Baby, Vanilla Ice - Stop! Collaborate and LISTEN! Or something like that. Should Karaoke this with Vinnie sometime.
  47. Blame It On The Rain, Milli Vanilli - catchy song, sad performers.
  48. Have You Seen Her, M.C. Hammer - the downward slide began here.
  49. With Every Beat Of My Heart, Taylor Dayne - Why isn't this higher up?
  50. Come Back To Me, Janet Jackson - uh... isn't this a church song?
