Today’s SOTD is a time capsule to 1997. For reasons unbeknownst to me, I woke up with this song in my head. It’s like someone planted it in my brain when I was sleeping because I feel like I literally haven’t heard this since 1997. Here’s Cornershop with Brimful of Asha. The video is a bit unfortunate but I couldn’t find a version of the song on its own.
A little Ice Cube to cool down your Tuesday? Not so much. This is definitely not a cool down song. Here’s some classic late ‘90s hip hop you can put your back into.
Time for some more Nick Cave, I think. Here’s one of his sappiest. Just because.
Missy Elliot and the Notorious B.I.G. in one fell swoop? Okay! Here’s the Ultimate Rush for some classic ’90s hip hop. Happy Friday.
Today’s SOTD is perfect for your morning, wherever it may be. Here are the Dandy Warhols with Good Morning from 1997.
This song came on this weekend and it was like magic. Here’s Lord Huron with Fool for Love.
How have I come this far without any Pet Shop Boys? Blasphemy. Here’s Paninaro 95, the 2003 remastered version. Doesn’t get gayer than this, boys and girls.
Today’s SOTD is from feminist music and fine art ensemble, Chicks on Speed. Here’s their song, Yes I Do to put a little sass and hiss in your Saturday.
Find yourself hankering over some sweet, clean synthesizers straight from the ‘80s but actually from the ‘90s? Portland, Oregon act Glass Candy can deliver that in spades. Here they are with Life After Sundown. Your ears will feel like they’ve been rinsed out with sparkling water and strobe lights after you give this one a listen.
Last time I played REM it was to remind myself not to go back to Rockville. Here’s another one of my favorite early REM songs, The Flowers of Guatemala. Flowers for your Friday. May they cover everything.
