The Contenders: Page 4

61 Frozen - Madonna
62 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

63 1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
64 Woman in Chains - Tears for Fears
65 Country Feedback - R.E.M.
66 Woman - Neneh Cherry
67 Glory Box - Portishead
68 Heartbeat (Tainai Kaiki II) - Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian
69 The Show Must Go On - Queen
70 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

71 This is Hardcore - Pulp
72 My Sweet Prince - Placebo
73 Ordinary World - Duran Duran
74 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

75 Karma Police - Radiohead
76 No Ordinary Love - Sade
77 Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia) - Us3
78 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

79 High & Dry - Radiohead
80 Lucky Man - The Verve
