Hmmm... I've made a personal 1994 chart, and I don't think it was a good year.  :-[

It's a matter of personal taste, but compared to 1990 till 1993... not many outstanding tracks.

I didnt mind some music from 1994, however I found most music after 1991 to be souless in most cases. I never liked a lot of the dance music around at that time and the rock music was pretty generic IMO. Personally I think music began to spiral downwards in quality from around 1988 onwards, and only began to really pick up after around 1996. The late 1990's were pretty good music wise, and it has been gradually been getting better until 2006, which seems to be one of the best years musically since 1987, and 2007 is shapiong up to be even better.


That being said, the music from 1994 holds special meaning for me because it was in this year that I met my wife.

I don't really like the 1994 dance sound (although I extremely liked it back then). Al those 2 Unlimited rip-off's... Only Culture Beats sounds o.k..

From a black music viewpoint, I see 1994 as the last good year for major label r&b. The new jack swing were still fairly intact, although running a bit out of steam and slowly making it's transformation into hip-hop soul. After 1994 the concept of uptempo r&b (ie stuff you could dance to) completely vanished, only to be replaced with formularized "bedroom-ballads" that all sounded the same.
In the mid-late 90s quality r&b were forced to relocate to independent labels not able to put the money into promoting their artist roster.

Today, it's all about oversinging, rap guest appearances, bling and all too obvious use of familiar samples. Good songwriting died in the 90s

Those are all good picks there, zcrito. I know just about all the songs in your list, and have quite a few favorites in that list, including "Lucky One".

Thanks.
Lots of good music in the '90s, well at least before '97 maybe.

"Come to my Window".  I first heard that song when i was carpooling with my friend and his mom to camp that summer.  I was 10 years old and I remeber the words just blew my mind.  When she sang about dialing numbers just to listen to somone breath I wondered if I would ever love anyone that much.  I hear that song today at 22 and I am right back in that car.

Here's a list of some of my personal favorite hits from 1994


"Return To Innocence" by Enigma
I remember this song being a major hit around April/May of 1994. Such a great song


"Undone - The Sweater Song" by Weezer
I can remember very clearly hearing this song alot around the time school had begun in August/September 1994 and all the kids in school loved the song.  I can recall going to parties and stuff back in Late 1994 and everyone rocking out to this song  8)


"I Can See Clearly Now" by Jimmy Cliff
Very nostalgic tune.  This was from the soundtrack to "Cool Runnings".  Was a big hit in very early 1994


"December 1963 (Oh What A Night!)" by Four Seasons
This of course was originally a song from the Mid 70's, but someone mixed the song and made it more into a dance song.  Awesome tune.  Was one of the biggest songs of the year, and was big on the charts in Late 1994


"I Alone" by Live
Awesome rock song from Late 1994.  I loved "Live", and they were easily one of the best rock groups of the 90's


"Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots
STP was amazing in the Mid 90's, with "Plush" being a huge hit during the Summer of 1993 and then "Interstate Love Song" being the most played rock song of 1994. Love it.


"Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies
Everytime I hear this song, it reminds me of Kurt Cobain's death, mainly because it was a huge hit at the time he died and I remember listening to it alot on the radio while being bummed out that Kurt had died  :(


"Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden
Such a huge hit during the Summer. I remember everyone raving about the music video and how cool it was.  The song was amazing.


"Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star
Haunting rock tune from Late 1994.  Reminds me of Thanksgiving '94 when my grandfather died


"Zombie" by The Cranberries
Another huge rock hit from Late 1994. The Cranberries really surprised everyone with this song because it sounded nothing like their previous stuff, which was more soft, as this one was alot more hard. Awesome song

This is an old post, but these songs are very representative of what I was listening to in 1994 (of course I'm talking about new songs, not counting older songs I was also into at the time). The '90s had alot of good AC, pop and dance, although alt rock was good too.
