90’s Music Superlatives Part 3/4

I know you all have been just chomping at the bit for this amazing 4 part series to continue, so here it is: the best of the best of 90’s music how I see it, Part 3.

Best Artist Who Ran Away from their Past – Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch

Good Vibrations” is what put Mark Wahlberg on the map, but now he just thinks he’s a stud actor and can’t do awesome workout videos anymore.

Best Sounding Female Voice – Natalie Merchant

Mix between Fergie and Jesus – Especially in “Wonder.”

Best Use of the Bucket Hat: New Radicals – You Get What You Give

Great song and great video. I love songs that have a meaning to them. Not only a great beat but a great message.

My Guiltiest Pleasure: No Doubt

Ska is pretty tight and Gwen Stafani is a badass. I may have been caught blasting “Don’t Speak,” or “I’m Just a Girl” a couple of times.

Band I Danced To the Most in My Room: *NSYNC

My buddy and I would do all the dances and watch the concerts on Disney Channel constantly.

Best Band That You Can’t Tell Their Race: OMC – How Bizarre

Latino… who woulda thunkit. Sorry Lou Bega, everybody knew you were latino.

Best Female Sing-a-Long Singer: Paula Cole

I Don’t Wanna Wait.” If you’re not singing, you’re not human.

Band That Rocked the Hardest: Pearl Jam

This video says it all.

Best Band Name: The Presidents of the United States of America

I could have done weirdest songs too for these guys, just listen to “Peaches” or “Lump.”

Best R&B Artist Who Urinated on Little Girls: R. Kelly

Dave Chappelle said it best, but “I Believe I Can Fly” and “World’s Greatest” are still great songs.

VH1’s #1 Song of the 90’s: Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit

Ask Blair Thompson, from the very beginning of my favorite series of all time, VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the 90’s, I picked Smells Like Teen Spirit as number one. And was right of course.

Best Lyrics: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Especially in Californication, but really all of their songs are lyrical works of genius. Maybe if Anthony Kiedis wasn’t on heroin and coke for all of the 90’s they wouldn’t be as good, but that can be said for 80% of rockers.

Best British Band: Take That

I didn’t know Robbie Williams was in Take That until a couple of months ago. Now it all makes sense. “Want You Back” was sang straight from the heart, and you can tell. Just a great all around pop band filled with quality 90’s musicians. The fact that Robbie Williams came out of there with an amazing solo career is probably wat put them above these guys:

Honorable Mention: Oasis

Many people would think Oasis to be above Take That, but not in my book. I think they are a little overrated, but still a damn good rock band. And it’s awesome that the two brothers that started it now hate each other.

Best Singer That Makes Me Think of Dead Puppies: Sarah McLauglin

Those commercials killed the songs for me. Now everybody identifies her music as the dead puppy songs. I don’t wanna see that, Sarah. Maybe Michael Vick should have seen this. Watch if you dare.

Best Love Song Band: Savage Garden

Are they gay? Aren’t they? Not sure, but these Aussies are a damn good cheesy love song duo. “Crash and Burn,” “I Want You,” “Truly Madly Deeply,” “To The Moon and Back,” and “I Knew I Loved You” – All just epic. I gotta put all the links there cus they are all so awesome.

Best Singer with a Deformed Face and a Really Hot Wife: Seal

Okay, it’s kind of a specific category, but “Kiss From a Rose” is just as good as it gets. And Seal’s wife, Heidi Klum has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.  Batman Forever is the second best batman movie of all time in my book, and I didn’t even connect the song to it until I saw the video a couple of months ago.

So there it is, the 3rd of 4 parts of my 90’s music extravaganza.

Agree of not (you probably don’t), That is what I Think I Think.
