I'm Sure the Winters Were Warmer in the 90s

This week I played the usual mixture of some of (in my opinion) the best music from the 90s, tracklisting as follows:-

C&C Music Factory - Things That Make You Go Hmmmm...
Happy Mondays - Step On
Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree
Morrissey - The More You Ignore Me The Closer I Get
Tears For Fears - Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)
Stranglers - 96 Tears
Manic Street Preachers - Kevin Carter
Levellers - Just the One
Garbage - Push It
Fatboy Slim - Gangster Trippin'
Len - Steal My Sunshine
Kula Shaker - Tattva
Madonna - Vogue
Divine Comedy - Commuter Love
Marc Almond - Jacky
Peter Gabriel - Steam
Pulp - Mis-shapes
Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (90s cheat)
Spice Girls - Stop (guilty secret)
Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Under The Bridge
R.E.M. - The Great Beyond
Soup Dragon's Feat Junior Reid - I'm Free
Deee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart
Blur - There's No Other Way
Snap - The Power
Beth Orton - She Cries Your Name
Portishead - Glory Box

The 90s cheat was number one in 1991 and got to number 2 in 1992.  I managed to go for weeks without playing the Spice Girls, until this week's guilty secret.

There were no Christmas songs, although I may dig a few out for next week's show.  At least driving home in the snow got me in the mood for Christmas..
