Music Monday

Thinking about that horrible/awesome Depeche Mode concert made me think about all the concerts I've been to. Many moons ago I made this list, and need to update it a bit, it seems.

However, I am lazy and am just going to put up a video of one of my favorite 90's songs, of which there are not many. The 90's was a vast wasteland for me, musically speaking. I so hated the grunge thing. I hated Nirvana and hated Pearl Jam even more. But I really like the Foo Fighters, so go figure.

This next song is one that I can just sort of quietly groove to and enjoy. It's a lost gem that people have forgotten since although the band wasn't quite a one-hit wonder, they were pretty close. The CD that this song is on is one I can listen to over and over again without getting tired of it. Oh, and in this video you can see Ms. Halle and Mr. Murphy, pre-Oscar in the movie Boomerang as this song was also on the soundtrack.

I do believe this was "chill" before "chill" became a common term for this style.

Yeah, they had a good run, around 1991-92, also including "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss", which I prefer to this one.

Barbarian that I am, I'd much rather hear Nirvana or Pearl Jam.

The only thing I remember fondly from the 90s was any club tunes I used to hear going out dancing during college. That would be it. For music, I think the 90s was a suckass decade. No identity. Kind of schizo.
