Ryan Seacrest is asking: " What Is The Best 90′s Song of All-Time?"
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 53||02/09/2013|
Smells Like Teen Spirit is the most iconic.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 1||02/08/2013|
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 2||02/08/2013|
Smells Like Teenspirit by about ten miles.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 3||02/08/2013|
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 4||02/08/2013|
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 5||02/08/2013|
Ryan Seacrest and his listeners have the most retarded taste in music, so low brow and mainstream.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 6||02/08/2013|
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.

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 9||02/08/2013|
The obvious answer is "Common People" by Pulp.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 10||02/08/2013|
"Enter Sandman" by METALLICA - 1991
"Closer" by NINE INCH NAILS - 1994
...of course, Ryan Semencrest would hate these choices.

Alice In Chains - Would
Madonna - Vogue
Whitney - I Will Always Love You
Cher - Believe
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 12||02/08/2013|
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 13||02/08/2013|
I thought "One" was a gay anthem!
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 14||02/08/2013|
Smells Like Teen Spirit will probably be the song people think of most when looking back at 90s music.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 15||02/08/2013|
Down in a Hole - Alice In Chains
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 16||02/08/2013|
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 17||02/08/2013|
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 18||02/08/2013|
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 19||02/08/2013|
Obviously Ms. Seacrest was inspired by reading our very recent DL thread on the same topic.

r19 I think "Losing My Religion" is by far the best song of the 90's.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 23||02/08/2013|
I had a vision of love (WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA) and it was all that it turned out to be.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 24||02/08/2013|
90s pop music was terrible. County was really good in the 90s though.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 25||02/08/2013|
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.

"Mmm-Bop" for the win, Ryan.

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 30||02/08/2013|
One of my favorites was "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas. Very catchy.

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

"Don't Go Chasin' Waterfalls" by TLC.
Destiny's Child is nothing compared with good ol TLC!
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 34||02/08/2013|
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 35||02/08/2013|
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 36||02/08/2013|
Bless you, R32.
|by Mooriah Scary||reply 37||02/08/2013|
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 41||02/08/2013|
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.

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 50||02/09/2013|
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"
