Top 200 Songs of the 1990s, #120 - 111

1995 seems to be a pretty big year for music. So far 18 songs from '95 have charted on the countdown, with '99 in second with 13 songs. But there's still a looooong way to go until #1. Here's the next ten!

#120 - Waterfalls (1995)
by TLC

That would be 19 songs from 1995. 'Waterfalls' has stood the test of time with it's timeless lyrics that remain relevant to inner-city youth throughout the world. Left-Eye was one of the few premiere female MCs in the 90s and was taken from the world far too early.

#119 - Sing It Back (1999)
by Moloko

Roisin Murphy is infinitely cooler as the electronica goddess she evolved into during the 2000s, but disco-throwback 'Sing It Back' was pretty damn good. I really wanted to put the Moloko track 'Fun For Me' onto the list. I didn't, so I'll just pimp it... go look it up!

#118 - Ironic (1996)
by Alanis Morissette

'Ironic' was one of the singles released from Morissette's debut album, Jagged Little Pill aka the highest selling debut album of ALL-TIME!!! This one's another good sing-along.

#117 - Polyester Girl (1998)
by Regurgitator

Fun, fun, fun. I like to think of 'Polyester Girl' as the male predecessor to The Dresden Doll's 'Coin Operated Boy.'

#116 - To The Moon And Back (1996)
by Savage Garden

No, I'm sorry, 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' will not be making an appearance. 'To The Moon And Back' was actually a quality pop song and it was even kind of smart in terms of lyrics. Songs about alienation (not Alien Nation, tools) don't seem to be that big nowadays, but they were huge in the 90s.

#115 - By My Side (1991)

Another singer that died too early. Michael Hutchence and Co. were able to move out of the 80s and release some fantastic musack in the early 90s.

#114 - Disarm (1994)
by Smashing Pumpkins

The Smashing Pumpkins were amazing. The 90s were there decade and 'Disarm' is their third song to place on the countdown. How many more can they get on here before all's said and done?

#113 - Take A Bow (1994)
by Madonna

I'm not going to slag off Madge. But doesn't anyone else miss when she was THE source of reliable superpop, backing up her crazy antics with Grammy worthy music? Anyway, 90s Madonna is my favourite... and we haven't even seen anything from the Ray of Light album yet!

#112 - Freak (1997)
by Silverchair

Neon Ballroom is an amazing album. Arguably Silverchair's best and with songs like 'Freak' you can see why.

#111 - Epic (1990)
by Faith No More

Epic pretty much sums it up don't you think?
