Oh yeah! This is a great song. I love it when Bono writes songs for the greats. This one has really deep lyrics and fits Johnny Cash perfectly. A great close out song for Zooropa. Unfortunately, when U2 performs it live, the Edge adds a "Wa-wa-wa-wa-Wandering" in a high pitch that just doesn't work as well as the studio recording.




This song really hit the airwaves hard back in '90 on the Black Crowes smash debut album. Great bluesy stuff. I never knew it was an Otis Redding song.




A worthy cover, but I still like The Guess Who's version better.

This song is fantastic, by the very underrated Goo Goo Dolls.




I don't think I know this one. I like it. Nice rhythm.




I never knew this was L7. Cool song. This was popular on the alternative station, back when Boston had an alternative station.




Brilliant. Oasis really had a spectacular, but self destructive, run.
I love the line "You said the brains I had went to my head". There's a Three Stooges line for ya!





This is quite a jam. That's two week in a row you've gotten me to enjoy Steely Dan(last weeks 70's Music Fun post on the G/S/B board). I didn't see that coming.

I think you're right.

Cool. Maybe you'll like more in the coming weeks too. \:\)

So did you figure out the commonality in the 60s, 70s and 90s list? I think you have it.

I'd have to guess songs that were in movies?
American Woman was in Austin Powers, and Iris was in City of Angels.

I did have this idea in my head, and was wondering if you'd throw in Someday I Suppose by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones from Clueless. But I had to wiki the songs here to find the soundtrack songs.

No, the answer was Otis Redding.

Runnin' Blue by the Doors is a tribute to him and starts with the lines

Poor Otis, dead and gone
Left me here to sing his song
Pretty little girl with the red dress on
Poor Otis, dead and gone


Also on the 60's list I played Otis Redding singing Mr. Pitiful

Then in the 70's I played Sly and the Family Stone "I Can't Turn You Loose" which was first recorded by Otis Redding

And on the 90's list I played Black Crowes Hard to Handle which was also originally an Otis Redding song (As you noticed).

Great powerful tune. Never heard this until that Johnny Cash movie came out about ten years ago and a relative bought a greatest hits album of his with this on it. What a collaboration.




This song was an instant classic and I never understood where this band went after they hit it big early on in the 90s.




Good cover. I believe this was released on the Austin Powers 2 soundtrack if I remember correctly. That was definitely one of the funniest films of the 90s.

I am from outside of the Buffalo, NY area aka the hometown of the Goo Goo Dolls. So if the Goo Goo Dolls were popular across America in the late 90s you can imagine how many fans they have here. This song was everywhere and I've always enjoyed it. This one and "Name" I remember being the biggest, but I think "Iris" took the cake. Another personal favorite is Broadway, which is actually about Broadway Avenue in Buffalo.




Don't recall this song but I definitely liked it.




Great song! I still catch it once in a blue moon on the radio if I'm lucky.

    You know I never was a huge Oasis fan,but there are certain songs I really, really like. This is one of my favorite songs of the 90s and it doesn't get enough radio-play. I still here Wonderwall which I never liked much.

Apparently they are still playing. I guess they just haven't had any hits. I should check them out maybe there are some tracks that should have been hits.

That's where I must have first heard it. I used to love those movies back in the day.

I remember "Name" but not "Broadway," I'll be sure and give it a listen.

Yeah I want to say it's the song they play in the credits. I remember thinking the first was okay, but they really knocked it out of the park with the second. After that the 3rd just seemed like a disappointment to me.

I agree, with the third one all the jokes that were so funny in the first 2 seemed really tired.
