Prolonging the Situation Only Makes It Worse

I've been struggling to think of things to write here. I've tried to think about things that go on in my life, because I know I don't talk about that much. But really, my only hobby is movies. I know that's sad, but that's really all we do. We go to the theater and we rent movies. I already talk about that, so that's a bust.

Then I realized I do love something as equally as I love movies. Music.

So on Mondays (probably) I'll talk about something music related. It may be a list, it may be a specific song or band, or it may just be music news. Who knows?

The idea for the first installment came to me as Josh and I were texting about how awesome Radiohead is (yes, this is what we text about.)

Here's my top 10 songs from the 90's from bands that I still listen to:

1.Creep- Radiohead
2.Glycerine- Bush
3.Don’t Look Back In Anger- Oasis
4.Buddy Holly- Weezer
5.Learn to Fly- Foo Fighters- (This came out November 99, it counts)
6.Into Your Arms- The Lemonheads
7.Vasoline- Stone Temple Pilots
8.Basketcase- Greenday
9.What’s The Frequency Kenneth- REM
10.My Friend- Red Hot Chili Peppers

And the top 10 of songs I love but I don't listen to the bands anymore:

1.Jeremy- Pearl Jam
2.Inside Out- Eve 6
3.Save Tonight- Eagle Eye Cherry
4.Popular- Nada Surf
5.Black Gold- Soul Asylum
6.Adam’s Song- Blink 182
7.Closer- Nine Inch Nails
8.Come Out And Play- The Offspring
9.Wrong Way- Sublime
10.Smells Like Teen Spirit- Nirvana

These weren't in any order. Do you think I liked rock in the 90s?

What are your favorite 90s songs?

1. You have KICKASS taste in music and I PPH you.
2. Erik does a great version of Into Your Arms and I guess he actually tried out for the Lemonheads.

I hate Oasis, the Foo Fighters, and STP, but other than that, your list is pretty decent.

NIN's new album just came out, and I'm enjoying it - you should check it out.

I'd add No Doubt, The Cure, Violent Femmes, and more Nirvana.

For the record, we do text about other things...but music is probably up there since we're both music heads.

Anyway...I'll have to make a list and post it on my site, because I need to go through my music library to figure this one out.

Robin- Thank you. I won't hit on him or anything, but that's hot.

Avitable- I did like No Doubt at the time, but none of the songs stand out to me now. I guess Don't Speak.

Josh- I suppose it's fair to point out you were watching the Radiohead special on tv at the time.

I liked "Tragic Kingdom".

You can, I don't mind. I know, one of the first things that attracted me to him was that he met and shook hands with Dave Grohl. I think the whole room saw me fall in love at that moment.
