Most Beautiful Songs of 90s


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Down by the Water - PJ Harvey
62 Philadelphia - Neil Young

Each time I watch the movie, I can almost hold my tears till the end, and when this song begins, I can't resist anymore... - Lotuscandy

63 Sleeping Satellite - Tasmin Archer
64 Frozen - Madonna
65 Killing Me Softly - Fugees

It's a cover (but a Grammy winning cover), and I always thought that Roberta Flack's 1973 version was the original, I just read that it wasn't (it was the first which made a hit). Anyway, both are nice in slightly different styles. - Lotuscandy

66 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
67 Woman in Chains - Tears for Fears
68 Country Feedback - R.E.M.
69 Woman - Neneh Cherry
70 Glory Box - Portishead
71 Heartbeat (Tainai Kaiki II) - Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian
72 The Show Must Go On - Queen
73 I Wanna Be Adored - The Stone Roses

I must say I occasionally consider songs from 1989 as 1990's songs (same for the other decades), sometimes because they were realised at the end of the year, or were only known the decade after and also got "the sound" of the next decade. That just seems more coherent to me (and hopefully to you too).
This song came out on their debut album in 1989, which at the time, received little attention from both consumers and music critics, it has since been acclaimed by critics and musicians alike, and critics still put it high in polls of the greatest albums of all time. - Lotuscandy

74 This is Hardcore - Pulp
75 My Sweet Prince - Placebo
76 Ordinary World - Duran Duran
77 Love Song for a Vampire - Annie Lennox

This song was written and recorded by Annie Lennox as the theme song to Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. - Lotuscandy

78 No Ordinary Love - Sade
79 Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia) - Us3
80 Keep Ya Head Up - 2pac

A feminist anthem isn't something common in Hip hop, I think there was only Tupac to make a success out of it. If only the idea could grow, this would be a reminder to "macho men" and to girls, to keep their head up (and use it)!
Besides adoring his flow, I read his lyrics, to be able to understand better what he says (he is already pretty understandable for a French girl like me), I think he was really a genius at writing and could have achieved big things if he had lived. - Lotuscandy
