“Live Forever” by Oasis

In the mostly British press-created rivalry between 90’s Britpop powerhouses Blur and Oasis, I was always firmly entrenched in the former’s camp, an Albarn and Co. flag waver and cheerleader. But damn it, if the latter didn’t get their cigarette stained and booze soaked meat hooks into me every once and a while. Oasis’s “Live Forever,” from 1994’s Definitely Maybe was one of those meat hooks.

“Stars” by Hum

Some days I wish I was still as enthusiastic and starry eyed as I used to be.  I wish I hadn’t become so jaded with age.  I wish I still had that same feeling of exhilaration I experienced when I heard the guitar riff in the bridge to “Stars” by Hum for the first time.  Yeah.  That was good stuff.

“Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor

Sinead O’Connor played a very vivid role in my pre-adolescent, pop-cultural memory bank, a massive hit single, a memorable video to accompany it, a live (totally overblown) TV scandal, and…you know…she was a girl with a shaved head. (I was eleven! What do you want?!) The artist was everywhere, on the radio and MTV, invading the whole spectrum of pop culture and media, even getting parodied on the after-school cartoon show, Tiny Toons Adventures.
