Further Proof the ‘90s Really Did Suck


Seriously: Spin
Doctors, Meredith Brooks, Tonic, Blind Melon, Live… need we say more?


By Blurt Staff


Of course, if we were programming all this, we’d call it Worst Nineties Compilation… Ever!, but
that’s just because we’re smartasses. Anyway, if you’re reading this, you don’t
need us to tell you how badly the ‘90s sucked; for all you kids, don’t believe
your parents when they single out the ‘70s, because WE lived through both
decades and we know of what we speak.


In a timely move, then, EMI will be releasing, on Nov. 9,
the latest in its popular, multimillion-dollar selling NOW That’s What I Call…series of anthologies, and this one’s a
doozy. It brings together 18
of the decade’s top chart hits, including New Radicals’ “You Get What You
Give,” Spin Doctors’ “Two Princes,” Barenaked Ladies’ “One Week,” Meredith
Brooks’ “Bitch,” Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy,” Joan Osborne’s “One Of
Us,” Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You),” Des’Ree’s “You Gotta Be,” Duran Duran’s
“Ordinary World,” Shawn Mullins’ “Lullabye,” Edwin McCain’s “I’ll Be,” Tonic’s
“If You Could Only See,” Vertical Horizon’s “Everything You Want,” Everclear’s
“Father Of Mine,” Live’s “I Alone,” Collective Soul’s “Shine,” Blind Melon’s
“No Rain,” and Sublime’s “What I Got.” The full track listing is below.


Truly, a
turd that is polished, is a turd that glistens! Can we have our ten years back?
