Subject: 1993: The Year in Music

Written By: XYkid on 11/07/13 at 12:55 pm

I'd like to start this one out with an underrated gem. This song comes from Annie Lennox' album Diva, released in 1992. This song was released for airplay in early 1993. The album itself is one of my all time favourites and one of the most underrated albums of the decade, if not all time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU-zTf5mjp8

Also, another one from The Proclaimers. Interestingly enough, this song was originally released in 1988, and was a big hit in their homeland of the UK. However, the song gained notoriety when it was featured in the film Benny and Joon. Sadly, to this day, it remains the group's only hit outside of Europe.

I like this one. :) One of the best non-80s hits by a new-wave band.

Another British new-wave band that had most of its hits during the 80s also had a big hit during the year 1993: Tears For Fears, with "Break It Down Again":

I know about the drug problems he had.

Here's a little something interesting about the song Sliver, it was actually recorded in 1990(the music video was aired in 93 though). Come to think of it, some of the songs on Nevermind where wrote in 88, 89 and 90. There was also a video for In Bloom that aired on the Sub Pop channel/show in 1990, it was put on the box set I have.

On a much darker tone, Heart-Shaped Box was originally called Heart-Shaped Coffin.

Kurt on occasion would also take stabs at machismo/macho posers/testosterone poisoning. Very Ape off of In Utero is about macho types(mostly macho poser rock stars) and Mr. Moustache(from the Bleach era) is another along that theme.

Cool to know!  Had no idea it was an older song when I first heard it on Top 40.  Benny and Joon was a cute movie.  Saw it later in life though, not when it came out.

Living on My Own" is a song by Freddie Mercury, originally included in his first solo album Mr. Bad Guy. It was released as a single (backed with "My Love Is Dangerous") in September 1985 in the United Kingdom where it peaked at number 50. The July 1985 release in the United States had "She Blows Hot & Cold" as its B-side.

In 1993, almost two years after Mercury's death, the No More Brothers Mix of the song was released and reached number 1 in the UK, becoming Mercury's first solo number 1 hit. It remained at the top for 2 weeks.

Duran Duran: Ordinary World

What is happening to it all
crazy some would say
where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away.

But I won't cry for yesterday
there's an ordinary world
somehow I have to find
And if I try to make my way
to the ordinary world
I will learn to survive.

I was just 16 when this song was released.  I love Duran Duran with all of my heart but after Andy and Roger left it wasn't the same and it's still not the same after Andy left for the second time.

EDIT: Sorry about that.  There seems to be a copyright issue with that last video.

Israel Kamakawiwo╩╗ole's album Facing Future, released in 1993, included a ukulele medley of "Over the Rainbow" and Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World". The song reached #12 on Billboard's Hot Digital Tracks chart the week of January 31, 2004 (for the survey week ending January 18, 2004). In the UK the song was released as a single under the title "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". It entered the UK Official Singles Chart in April 2007 at #68. After several returns to the chart, in September 2008 it reached its peak position so far going up to #46. In Germany, the single also returned to the German Singles Chart in September 2010. After only 2 weeks on that chart, the song had already received gold status for having sold 150,000 copies. In October 2010 the song reached No. 1 in the German charts and 2011 it has been certified 5x Gold for selling more than 750,000 copies. It stayed 12 non-consecutive weeks at the top spot and was the most successful single in Germany in 2010. As of March 2012, it's the 2nd best-selling download ever in Germany with digital sales between 500,000 and 600,000. In France, the song debuted at #4 in December 2010 and reached number one.

Duran Duran: Ordinary World

What is happening to it all
crazy some would say
where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away.

But I won't cry for yesterday
there's an ordinary world
somehow I have to find
And if I try to make my way
to the ordinary world
I will learn to survive.

I was just 16 when this song was released.  I love Duran Duran with all of my heart but after Andy and Roger left it wasn't the same and it's still not the same after Andy left for the second time.

You're right; after a key member leaves a band, things aren't quite the same at all. Still, they managed to put out a decent record with this song.

That's true.  But at least when Roger left he had an excuse.  He was working himself to the point of exhaustion.  When Andy left both times it was because he couldn't work with Simon and Nick.

"Better the Devil You Know" is a pop song written by Brian Teasdale and Dean Collinson for Sonia. This single was released in April 1993 as the second and final single from Sonia's third album Better the Devil You Know. The song was United Kingdom's entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1993. At the end of judging that evening, "Better the Devil You Know" took the second-place slot with 164 points. After Eurovision, the song peaked at #15 on the UK Singles Chart, and was in the chart for 7 weeks.

Glad you got round to 1993. I'm not a Eurovision fan but I did watch that year's show in full. I loved Sonia's / the UK's entry.

However I was rooting for Greece's entry that year slightly more.

"I Got You Babe" is a 1965 song written by Sonny Bono, the first single from the first album, Look at Us, of the American pop music duo Sonny & Cher. In August of that year the single spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, where it sold more than 1 million copies and was certified Gold. It also reached #1 in the United Kingdom and Canada. In 2011, the song was named as one of the greatest duets of all times by both Billboard and Rolling Stone magazine. It was also listed at #444 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004. The song made a bit of a comeback when it was used repeatedly as Phil Connors' alarm clock wake-up music in the 1993 movie Groundhog Day.

I had no idea that its overall popularity was revived due to use in that movie.

I heard some anti-Barney songs that came from 1993.

"I love you, you love me.
Space is where we sent Barney.
With a muffled pop, he turned into
One big mass of purple goo!"
