The 90's was a quality decade for music - and don't you think otherwise. Yes, there was an onslaught of boy and girl groups that churned out the pop songs (which have turned into bangers these days), but there were also some absolute corkers. There aren't any pop groups below, as they get too much recognition these days; this list is for the sometimes-forgotten-about songs from the 90's.
M People - 'Moving On Up'
Dance tracks really came into their own in the 90's, and M People released solid albums during the decade. Heather Small attempted a solo career in the 2000's; and even managed to make it half-way through the sixth series of dancing competition 'Strictly Come Dancing.'
No Doubt - 'Just A Girl'
No Doubt's album 'Tragic Kingdom' featured a host of great singles - and 'Don't Speak' is arguably their biggest hit with over 200 million streams on Spotify alone. 'Just A Girl' has been living in the track's shadow for far too long, and deserves more recognition.
OMC - 'How Bizarre'
Granted, 'Bizarre' might get a bit more attention than the other songs from the 90's on this list, but it could always get more. The highlight of the music video is definitely the horrifying green screen action - yet how cool we thought it looked in 1996.
Pet Shop Boys - 'Se A Vida E'
The Pet Shop Boys back collection is utterly bursting at the seams, so its no wonder some songs have become lost in the mix. 'Se A Vida E' is such a classic 90's song, it's a pity we don't hear from it more often.
DJ Jean - 'The Launch'
Big fish, little fish, cardboard box.
Eels - 'Novocaine For The Soul'
Taken from 1996's 'Beautiful Freak,' the track cemented the band as one of the best alternative rockers from the 90's. Eels are still going strong too, and have plans for a North American and European tour later this year.
Joan Osborne - 'One Of Us'
"Who?" you say? Just have a listen to the opening riff of the guitar, and you'll know exactly what song this is. Osborne was nominated twice for 'One Of Us' at the 1995 Grammy awards.
Beastie Boys - 'Sabotage'
Much like No Doubt's 'Just A Girl' the Beastie Boys rager of a tune 'Sabotage' doesn't get as much recognition as it deserves. Released in 1994, four years before 'Intergalactic' took over the world, the track is best enjoyed on a Friday night after a hard week's work.
These are just some of the somewhat forgotten songs from the 90's - are there any that you think we missed?
