I remember this being a pretty big song in the mid 90s.




I forgot what a funny video that was, and good tune too. Kinda has that Moby vibe to it, who was also big when this song came out as I recall.




I feel like this was on a soundtrack to some movie?

Sister Hazel
All For You


I remember this hit big in the summer of '97. Always liked it.

Tracy Chapman
Give Me One Reason


You don't hear this enough anymore, yet it was everywhere around '95 and '96. Great song.

Yeah, it was directed by Brett Ratner. that's a pretty big name for a music video.

    Funny vid, I don't know much Blur but I've always meant to listen to more.


You should they're a lot of fun. I'll keep playing them here.

Wiki say:
2000 film "Loser" as well as the 2010 film "She's Out of My League."

I haven't seen either of those.

I don't know if I remember this one. It's alright.




I don't consider myself a Madonna fan, but this song and Ray Of Light I really like. Pretty funny video, too. I remember when everyone was quoting Austin Powers movies. It was quite a phenomenon.




This video was strange, in a kind of funny way.




I've always liked this song. A radio friendly pop favorite.




This is a good choice, too. It's got a smokey nightclub sound.




This one has an even smokier nightclub sound. Very good song.




This is an upbeat pop song. Very good. I know the song well, but don't recall the name Sister Hazel.




Probably my favorite Tracy Chapman song. I remember hearing all the stories about Chapman being discovered playing in the train stations of Cambridge, and her being an instant sensation on all the radio stations. Being a local performer, she passed all boundaries and was played on top 40, alternative, softrock and rock stations.

Another good group. I know you like to cross into different genres from each decade in these posts, so could I request Something To Talk About by Bonnie Raitt? This is a song that was well off my musical path back in the 90's but I absolutely loved it.

Hmmm... neither have I but I do remember seeing previews for She's Out of My League a lot- maybe that is what I'm thinking of.

This song popped into my head the other day and I thought for sure I'd already played it, but I hadn't yet.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the songs this week.

The Bonnie Raitt song is nothing I'd normally play, but I'll play it for you next week.
