Ok, unless something major happens, I plan for this segment to be the last 1990′s video dance party post for a few weeks. However, I do have a lot to cover. Next week, I move onto a new subject and it’s going to quite interesting, but that’s next week. First, we do our fourth installment of the 1990′s videos. This is the first part, second part and third part.
From one of my favorite movies of the 1990′s, “Go”, this is “Steal My Sunshine” from Len.
Also from “Go”, this is Magic Carpet Ride redone by Phillip Steir and this video features some of the cast from the movie.
Let’s go to OMC and its song, “How Bizarre”.
From the New Radicals, this is “You Get What You Give”. This is one of my favorite songs of the last decade.
From the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the soundtrack to “Beavis and Butthead Do America”, this is “Rollercoaster”. This rocks.
I would be remiss if I didn’t post the video that made the Chili Peppers on MTV, “Give It Away”. I have to admit, my sister turned me on to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
As the 1990′s were wrapping up, Blink 182 was beginning to hit it big and this song, “What’s My Age” struck a chord with a lot of people, especially me. Great song. Great video. Makes fun of The Gap swing commercials of the time and you’ll see cameos of Hal Sparks and Jim Rome.
I can’t go without paying tribute to Nirvana which really started the 1990′s Seattle rock movement with “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Too bad Kurt Cobain could not kill the demons that were affecting him. He left behind a lot of great music.
When Hole debuted, people were skeptical because it was thought Courtney Love was gravytraining on Kurt Cobain’s fame, but after listening to “Live Through This”, it was apparent that Courtney had some talent of her own. This is “Malibu” from “Celebrity Skin”.
One more Hole video. This is a live performance of “Violet”.
Also from Seattle came the great band Soundgarden whose album, Superunknown was one of the best albums I have ever heard from beginning to end. This is “Black Hole Sun”.
This is Live and “I Alone” off of another extremely strong CD, “Throwing Copper”.
Of course, the 1990′s gave us Smashing Pumpkins and this is my favorite song of theirs, “Cherub Rock”. Again, my sister turned me on to them. My sister was really on the cutting edge back then. This is a very trippy video.
And finally, this is “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight”, another trippy Smashing Pumpkins production, but again, a great song.
That’s going to conclude the look back at the 90′s. I may return to this down the line, but I’ll have a different theme for next week’s videos.
