Blast from the Past : The Weekend Playlist #6

Compared to the 80s, music in the 90s was equally good if not better. Artists let their imagination run wild -- that resulted in many memorable, bold and dark themed renditions. While the 80s were dominated by the cassette tapes, the rise of compact discs with better quality sound might have added fuel to music industry's growth engine in the 90s.

Enjoy the recollection.

Access previous playlists from the following locations:

    #1 (50s, 60s and 70s) | #2 (80s) | #3 (80s) | #4 (80s) | #5 (80s)

Audio-Visual material courtesy: YouTube. Other information: Wikipedia.

1. Bon Jovi - Blaze of Glory (1990)

Love the guitar bits. Featured in western, Young Guns II.

2. Radiohead - Creep (1992)

Some cool guitar trick in the middle earns it extra credit

3. Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence (1990)

Masters of Electronic music. Enjoy.

4. Jimmy Cliff - I Can See Clearly Now (1993)

Cover for Johnny Nash's 1972 original. Great song nevertheless.

5. Godsmack - Voodoo (1999)

Beware: dark video. My brother's old buddy Sudhir gets the credit for digging this one out.

6. Sting - Fields Of Gold (1993)

Enjoy. Tidbit: Sting (Gordon Summer) was associated with "The Police" too.

7. Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise (1995)

Cool song. Won a Grammy.

8. Blue Man Group - Synaesthetic (1999)

Pump up the volume, sit back and Enjoy

Love the guitar riff though sampled from John Barry's "Hip's Trip". Featured in The Matrix.
