Last week, I did a 1990′s Dance Party which included a lot of fun videos. Time for some more videos.
I’ll start with the lovely Julianna Hatfield of Julianna Hatfield Three doing her big hit, “My Sister”. Interesting thing, Julianna doesn’t have a sister. I like the fact that this is the raw video.
Here’s another band I got to see live in Providence, Luscious Jackson doing “City Song”. Love the scenes of New York in this video.
From Chicago, this is Veruca Salt doing “Seether”. This is the original incarnation of the band. They were so good.
Shirley Manson may be known for being on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but in the 1990′s she was the sex goddess of Garbage. I loved this group. I was hoping to see them in Providence, but never got the chance. In an interview in Details magazine (when the mag was actually good), Shirley was quoted as saying, “I want a man who will let me pee in his belly button.” Back in the 90′s, I thought that quote was hot. Now, not so much, but back then, quite a lot. This is “I’m Only Happy When It Rains”. Shirley is a big NBA fan.
Here’s a bonus Garbage video, “I Think I’m Paranoid”.
When Fox was an emerging network, it was dependent on teen dramas like Beverly Hills 90210, but then grew up with the great show, Melrose Place and it broke several hits like “Here and Now” from Letters To Cleo featuring the lovely Kay Hanley of Boston.
In 1992, the movie “Singles” tried to capture the mood of twenty somethings living in Seattle. It was an ok movie, but the soundtrack like in all of Cameron Crowe movies was spectacular. This is Paul Westerberg doing “Dyslexic Heart”. When I grow up, I want to be Paul Westerberg. He’s on a higher plain than many of us.
One more from Paul. This is “World Class Fad”.
Now to some electronic music. I’m A Firestarter (hey, hey, hey). Yes, it’s The Prodigy. My friend, Linda hates this band. I admit, they’re damned ugly, but I like the music.
And here’s “Breathe”. “You’re the Victim!”
You can’t mention The Prodigy without their controversial song, “Smack My Bitch Up”. I’m going to embed the video, but I will warn you that this is the uncensored version and is definitely Not Safe for Work. Don’t click on it if you’re offended by nudity.
That will do it for now. Next week, I’ll give you the Chemical Brothers, Henry Rollins, White Zombie, Crystal Method, The Offspring and a bunch more.
