Ryan Seacrest is asking: " What Is The Best 90′s Song of All-Time?"


by Mooriah Scary reply 5302/09/2013

Smells Like Teen Spirit is the most iconic.

by Mooriah Scary reply 102/08/2013

Bittersweet Symphony

by Mooriah Scary reply 202/08/2013

Smells Like Teenspirit by about ten miles.

by Mooriah Scary reply 302/08/2013

How can it be both of the 90's and "all-time"? It's like saying "this is the most amazing 9:13 am of the whole day!"

by Mooriah Scary reply 402/08/2013

The top 100 songs of the 90's chart wise (which doesn't mean best) has the top three:

3) Everything but the Girl, Missing

2) Nirvana, Smells Like Teen Spirit

1) Britney Spears, Baby, One more time.

by Mooriah Scary reply 502/08/2013

Ryan Seacrest and his listeners have the most retarded taste in music, so low brow and mainstream.

by Mooriah Scary reply 602/08/2013

Smells Like Teen Spirit was not a great song and Nirvana is so overrated.

Mariah's Dreamlover was such a great pop song and Fantasy was also great (both 8 weeks at #1) with Fantasy's remix being possibly the most influential song of the 90's by incorporating ODB's rap which created a whole new genre of incorporating rappers on pop songs.

Other songs that kind of define the 90's: Vogue I Will Always Love You Can't Touch This Mo Money Mo Problems

Also, drop the "of All-Time" it's not necessary.

by Mooriah Scary reply 702/08/2013

This one:

by Mooriah Scary reply 802/08/2013

Got it, R7. It's Pop Princesses for the win in your book. Nothing wrong with that, but maybe you shouldn't weigh in the efficacy of rock or indie music. It's not your genre.

(And Aerosmith incorporated rap in popular music way before Mariah did)

by Mooriah Scary reply 902/08/2013

The obvious answer is "Common People" by Pulp.

by Mooriah Scary reply 1002/08/2013

"Enter Sandman" by METALLICA - 1991


"Closer" by NINE INCH NAILS - 1994

...of course, Ryan Semencrest would hate these choices.

by Mooriah Scary reply 1102/08/2013

Alice In Chains - Would

Madonna - Vogue

Whitney - I Will Always Love You

Cher - Believe

by Mooriah Scary reply 1202/08/2013

I think it was VH1 that named the U2 song "One" as the greatest of the 90s. Blech. I did NOT come here to play Jesus to the lepers in my head, thankyouverymuch.

by Mooriah Scary reply 1302/08/2013

I thought "One" was a gay anthem!

by Mooriah Scary reply 1402/08/2013

Smells Like Teen Spirit will probably be the song people think of most when looking back at 90s music.

by Mooriah Scary reply 1502/08/2013

Down in a Hole - Alice In Chains

by Mooriah Scary reply 1602/08/2013

This is easy. The best, or at least most emblematic, song of the 1990s is Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah."

by Mooriah Scary reply 1702/08/2013

Equally, or perhaps more compelling is John Cale's version of "Hallelujah," which I first heard in the movie "Basquiat."

There's a pleading, almost desperate quality to Cale's vocal that makes me prefer it to all other versions.

by Mooriah Scary reply 1802/08/2013

Whichever version you like most, "Hallelujah" is *the* song of the '90s.

Or maybe it's "I Will Always Love You." But would I feel that way if Whitney had lived?

I also like "Losing My Religion" and some other songs by the Replacements and Billy Bragg, but those are probably too "deep catalog" to be "The Best 90′s Song of All-Time?"

(Did Ryan HunglikeaSeahorse actually say it like that, "The Best 90′s Song of All-Time?")

by Mooriah Scary reply 1902/08/2013

Obviously Ms. Seacrest was inspired by reading our very recent DL thread on the same topic.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2002/08/2013

[quote]1) Britney Spears, Baby, One more time.

Epic fail.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2102/08/2013

Ace of Base - The Sign

Ace of Base - All That She Wants

Ace of Base - Beautiful Life

by Mooriah Scary reply 2202/08/2013

r19 I think "Losing My Religion" is by far the best song of the 90's.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2302/08/2013

I had a vision of love (WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA) and it was all that it turned out to be.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2402/08/2013

90s pop music was terrible. County was really good in the 90s though.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2502/08/2013

I may get flamed but they still bump Faith Evan's "Love Like This Before" in the clubs. It's almost an expected song.

I'm an r&b and hip hop girl, so I have my bias but Biggie's "One More Chance" or TLC's "Waterfalls" were huge.

Also, what about "Isis" by the Goo Goo Dolls.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2602/08/2013

Barbie Girl - Aqua

MmmBop - Hanson

by Mooriah Scary reply 2702/08/2013

"Mmm-Bop" for the win, Ryan.

by Mooriah Scary reply 2802/08/2013

unfinished sympathy by massive attack

by Mooriah Scary reply 2902/08/2013

Thanks for the rec, R29. I'd not heard it before. I like it, but I don't think it's "song of the decade."

by Mooriah Scary reply 3002/08/2013

One of my favorites was "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas. Very catchy.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3102/08/2013

'The Show Must Go On' by QUEEN

by Mooriah Scary reply 3202/08/2013

That 90's music thread we recently had - about 350 replies - has way better music than Ryan Seacrest's suggestions.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3302/08/2013

"Don't Go Chasin' Waterfalls" by TLC.

Destiny's Child is nothing compared with good ol TLC!

by Mooriah Scary reply 3402/08/2013

LOL r26, it was Iris, not Isis. But, that was a great song.

I never heard Hallelujah until about 3 years ago when someone on Idol sang it.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3502/08/2013

From me it's another vote for Smells Like Teen Spirit closely followed by Under the Bridge, Creep and Bitter Sweet Symphony.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3602/08/2013

Bless you, R32.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3702/08/2013

VH-1 had "Smells Like Teen Spirit" at number 1 and "One" at number 2, and I tend to agree with them. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was the song that almost single handily launched the grunge era, and that's what the 90s was all about y'all.

I'm also personally partial to "No Rain" by Blind Melon, "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morrisette, and "Carousel" by Natalie Merchant.

by Mooriah Scary reply 3802/08/2013

Wonderwall - Oasis

Don't Speak - No Doubt

by Mooriah Scary reply 3902/08/2013

I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

by Mooriah Scary reply 4002/08/2013

Brick by Ben Folds Five

by Mooriah Scary reply 4102/08/2013

I have a few, though I doubt Ryan Seacrest will like them.

I agree with "Wonderwall" and "Don't Speak."

My picks are several: "Take a Bow" and "You'll See" Madonna "Runaway Train" Soul Asylum "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand" Primitive Radio Gods "Counting Blue Cars" Dishwalla "Something's Always Wrong" Toad the Wet Sprocket

Finally, Jewel, "Foolish Games." That and "Don't Speak" were playing the summer my husband divorced me and had me put away. I still get tears in my eyes when I hear those songs.

by Mooriah Scary reply 4202/08/2013

I'm sorry to hear that R42

by Mooriah Scary reply 4502/08/2013

Another vote for Pulp's "Common People"

by Mooriah Scary reply 4602/09/2013

Thanks r34 I loved TLC. No Scrubs still sounds fresh today. It was sad day when Lisa "left eye" died.

by Mooriah Scary reply 4702/09/2013

by Mooriah Scary reply 4902/09/2013

Seacrest only plays R'n'B and Rap-pop on his show, so it'll have to be a R'n'B song, I'm guessing Boys to Men or some uber shit like that.

by Mooriah Scary reply 5002/09/2013

Well it was r&b pop that was definitely the most commercially successful at that time, Janet's "That's The Way Love Goes" was iconic, as was Boys II Men "I'll Make Love to You", Mariah's "One Sweet Day", and Whitney's "I Will Always Love You"
