Friday Nineties – Clinton Clinton Clinton

In the Nineties most people didn’t have very much to do on email, mainly because we still talked to each other on the phone and it took longer to get online to read email than it did to actually go to the person’s house.  Of course it is a very different world now and look…

Friday Nineties Reborn

So now that we are on year six of Friday Nineties and I have, for the first time in five years, not panicked like a freak trying to figure out which song to do.  It’s strangely worrisome.  Or at least it was until I panicked because I didn’t know what the hell else to do. …

Pearl Jam – Black – Five Years of Friday Nineties

It was five years and one day ago when I started doing this column.  Look! Little did I know that I would still be doing it five years later.  And I think that five years is long enough to constrain myself to music.  See, I (and in some important cases for which I am grateful,…

Daft Punk – Around The World

Next week is the FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Friday Nineties.  So there will be something neat happening then.  In the meantime, I am going to feature “Around the World” by Daft Punk this week.

Semisonic – Closing Time

Bryan Adams – (Everything I Do) I Do It For You

Bryan Adams is completely cool in my book.  My grammar school dances needed him to be there (figuratively), crooning with his gravelly voice and bad skin.  He was everyone in fifth grade’s hero.  And his 80s might spilled over juuuust a little bit into 1992 when he got the plum assignment of providing a song…

Wilson Phillips – Release Me

I’m sick so you should probably check in to see if I die or not.  I didn’t ever give anyone my login so if anyone starts posting as me make sure they aren’t calling themselves Arcadia or Acadia E1nstein.  The staff is tricky and think if they can pretend I am alive they will eventually…
