90s Playlist!

How sad it is that '90s blog week is coming to an end! Untrue to my 90s week theme, I have let a couple anachronistic posts slip, but now it's like totally about the '90s!
My inspiration for this whole theme was last Saturday's events. All of the kids in my mod tend to gather in our common area and hang out. One usually has a laptop on which they can youtube search music and double as a friend and a DJ. However, NO ONE wants to listen to what I like, some kids are strictly into rap, and others strictly Coldplay. So, how can we compromise? The classics, of course!
The only time we can reach musical harmony in Mod 2A is by listening to music from our past- the music we listened to before we had refined our tastes. So, I acting as the DJ that night, began a '90s playlist that would satisfy all. I resisted my urges to play all old Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, and NOFX and went back in time to what I actually listened to. I also excluded some of the "obvious" choices in music such as Nirvana, Spice Girls, and Backstreet Boys, etc. as well as more "taste-specific" music.

Here is an example of a bit of our playlist:


Lovefool - The Cardigans (This was my first-ever favorite song)
Zombie - The Cranberries
Jumper / Never Let You Go / Semi-Charmed Life / How's it Gonna Be? - Third Eye Blind
Closing Time - Semisonic
Steal My Sunshine - LEN
Don't Speak - No Doubt
How Bizarre - OMC
Tubthumping - Chumbawamba
Building a Mystery - Sara Mclachlan
Disarm - Smashing Pumpkins
Mr. Jones - Counting Crows
Push - Matchbox Twenty
Inside Out - Eve 6
The Freshman - Verve Pipe
You're a God / Everything You Want - Vertical Horizon
What's My Age Again? - Blink 182
I Want You - Savage Garden
Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me) - Blessid Union of Souls
Save Tonight - Eagle Eye Cherry


The list goes on... What would you add?

I liked the list you've made, so reminiscent of the 90s. Can I add something from the Gin Blossoms? Folow you Down or Hey Jealousy. :)
