Subject: 1995: The Year in Music

Written By: XYkid on 11/16/13 at 3:48 pm

This is probably one of my favourite years in music. It was very interesting. Grunge is slowly starting to fade away since Kurt's death (RIP), and mostly being replaced with Adult Alternative. I feel like a lot of the music around this time sort of had a hippie-esque, early 70s vibe to it.

This was also the year one of my favourite childhood movies came out, A Goofy Movie. I love the soundtrack in this film, and my favourite songs were the ones done by the pop star Powerline (an allusion to Michael Jackson), voiced by Tevin Campbell.

Alanis Morisette also made her big debut that year, and her album, Jagged Little Pill, became the one of the top selling acts from a solo female act.

And of course, what's 1995 without a little Hootie? I don't care how many of you hate them, I will always be a fan of theirs. Go ahead and fudge me, I don't care.

Why would anyone fudge you for liking a song? Ignore them if they do.
The song's not bad though "Only wanna be with you", one of the better ones from that time period.

Here's one I like, it's not bad.

Blues Traveler hit big that year with "Run-around":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-yLH5wcEoQ

I remember it spent several months on the charts, and I tried to memorize it but had a hard time understanding most of the words.


Much later that year, they had a follow-up hit with "Hook", which has a long verse with speedily-sung words that are also kinda hard to understand.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRhJt3PLdUE

Both songs make ample use of the harmonica.

A few things: 

1.) I was 11 in 1995 and that summer you could not go ANYWHERE without hearing a song from Cracked Rear View Mirror. 
2.) The same holds true for Blues Traveler's Four and DMB's Under The Table. 

3.) That Weird Al Bad Hair Day was one of the first CDs I ever bought. 
4.) I bought this CD ( the soundtrack to the film Bad Boys) and listened to this song over and over again.

It did; it was a big hit during the last few months of the year.

Lots of people probably heard the background vocals as "Who loves tacos", but it's actually "ooh la kah koh", which, according to Hawkins, doesn't actually mean anything; she apparently made it up herself while recording the album.

Released as a single in 1995, "You Are Not Alone" is the second single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory. The R&B ballad's composition has been attributed by R. Kelly in response to difficult times in his personal life. He then forwarded a bare demo tape to Jackson, who liked the song and decided to produce it with Kelly. Jackson's interest in the song was also linked to recent events in his personal life. The song was later covered by Kelly himself as a hidden track on his tenth solo studio album Love Letter.
