:) I only liked (out of this list) "Baby, I Love Your Way" by Big Mountain and "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies.
"Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" is now an OK song.

Where's the alternative rock bands like Soundgarden & Stone Temple Pilots?

Richard Marx & Tevin Cambell †were still around in 1994?

Weren't they flipping burgers in 1994?

While Broadway Diva Deborah Gibson starred in "Grease". :D

Like with Billboards 1993, the grunge bands probably released an album late in 1994, or maybey not in that year.  Most of the alternative stuff came out in 1992 from what I remember anyway.  I KNOW that Billboards 1995 will definately have Pearl Jam on there.   I'm not sure how Billboards does this, because I remember Ace of Base coming out with "Sign" in '93, but perhaps it was late in '93 so it charted only in '94.  

Though I seem to remember Hootie and the Blowfish being popular around 1993/1994, and I was sure they had a Top 10 hit around then.

Tevin Campbell, i was like 7 when he first got some hits, i always confused him with Babyface lol, he just like completely disappeared after that. Then he had like 3 hits in 1994 and disappeared again.

Yea "the sign" probably charted in early 94. I remember though the song got played a lot in the summer of 94 still, my first time at summer camp(it was a day camp) even with "dont turn around"
i like the stuff from that list, except 6,8 & 9

Yes, I would have thought that "Black Hole Sun" would have come close to being in the Top 10 for the year.

Number 10 should be number 1, number 4 should be number 2, and number 8 should be number 10.

Tevin Campbell is an interseting name to drop on these boards. Originally he was on Prince's label when he first came out in 1990 I think. He had a hit in 94 as somebody mentioned with "Can We Talk" and interestingly enough it was produced by Babyface. I don't recall his other 2 hits in 94 though. R&B music really didn't get alot of Top 40 radio airplay then. He did release an album in early 1999 but by then Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys was hot. There was no place for an R&B artist like Tevin Campbell on the charts back then and I mean no place. He had a very good voice though.

Ya know what...I don't like any of those songs   :o    Somethings wrong with me!


No, seriously that is one bad list of songs.  And '94 was a great year for music, but these weren't the best songs, in my opinion.

I completely agree with you. †All I could do when I saw that list was make a half a** attempt at making fun of the Hotstepper song. †That's about all it did for me. †I didn't even realize Richard Marx was still recording "hit" songs that year.

Modern Rock radio in '94 was very good, some of the songs 106.3 The Edge(Phoenix market) played that year:

Greenday-When I Come Around
Portishead- Sour Times
Love Spit Love- Am I Wrong
Liz Phair- Supernova
Oasis- Supersonic and Live Forever
Soundgarden- Spoonman
Pearl Jam- Spin The Black Circle
Dink- Green Mind
Jesus and Mary Chain- Sometimes Always
Material Issue- Kim the Waitress
Live- I Alone and Selling The Drama
Beastie Boys- Sure Shot
311- Homebrew
Better Than Ezra- Good
Dada- All I Am
Depeche Mode- Rush
Weezer- Undone and Buddy Holly
Counting Crows- Einstein On The Beach
The Cranberries- Zombie
Sonic Youth- Superstar
Dishwalla- It's Going To Take Some Time
Stone Temple Pilots- Big Empty
Soul Coughing- Screenwriter's Blues
Seal- Prayer For The Dying
Blur- Girls and Boys
Bush- Everything Zen
Toad The Wet Sprocket- Fall Down


Sorry for the long list, it's been a few days since I posted. †;D

Ah gawd dang if Regulate ain't one of the best rap singles of the decade.

I don't know if this has been brought up in other threads, but the top ten singles of the nineties are skewed against what actually got radio play. †At the time, the singles charts were determined by the CD singles that actually got sold, and nothing else. †However, more and more the music that got played on the radio was not being released as singles, especially the modern rock songs, so more and more what actually made it to the top of the charts was the stuff that had been released as singles, which was usually pop and r&b.

I guess by 94 I was worn out by the whole Snoop/Dre radio monopoly, but as far as the original list goes that would have to probably be the best song of the bunch.  Obviously, at this point, I was listening to a lot more modern rock than rap/hip hop.  Except, that is for Ill Communication and The Alkoholiks' album 21 and Over(released in 93 though).
