Tune in Tuesday (2) - 90's Edition!

Tune in Tuesdays is a weekly music feature hosted by the fabulous Ginger at GReads. As you may know, I am ridiculously addicted to music... so much so that I think I may love it more than books. *Gasp!* Shocking, I know. Anyway... Each week you can post about a new or old song to share the love of music! So link up and join the fun!

Seeing as there is only one more week of 90's Edition, I've decided to do something a little different. This week I'm going to feature a few songs that I loved during this decade and still continue to adore today.

Let's jump right in! I thought the perfect way to start this edition was with some Matchbox Twenty. I mean, seriously... who doesn't like them (and the yummy voice of Rob Thomas)? I thought I was going to drive my family absolutely mad playing this album on repeat, but nope! This is one album my entire family enjoyed... and I'm pretty sure we all have a copy. Enjoy!

This song came out my freshmen year in high school and somehow (considering it seemed everyone but me listened to nothing but RnB and/or Country) became a sort of anthem for my class. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with a little Green Day...

I promise I don't listen to music by guys only... as proof, here's some Sarah McLachlan! Oh my word, I love her voice! This video in particular was one of my favorites in the 90's... it's just so amazing! This album is still my favorite of hers, too. Enjoy!

I still don't know how I lucked into finding this next band. All I know is it was my senior year in high school and I was wanting something different from all the lame music my classmates listened to. So what did I do? I went hunting. Then I struck gold and found what I was looking for in a new band called... Muse. And the rest, as they say, is history...

Be sure to tune in next week for another "something different" to celebrate the last 90's Edition of Tune in Tuesday!

  1. I love all of your pics! I had this Matchbox CD and listened to it over and over!

  2. Where to even start with your Tune-In Tuesday post! I love Matchbox Twenty and Rob Thomas and his awesome voice. Seriously, every song by them is great. There are a few song by Green Day that I like and that is most definitely one of them! Sarah McLachlan has one of the most beautiful voices EVER and Muse is just so beyond great. I love their music. Super awesome choices this week!

  3. I just listened to 3am yesterday on my I-pod- love that song!

  4. Great picks! I love Matchbox Twenty, Green Day and Sarah McLachlan something fierce. True story: this Green Day song was our class song. Gets me all misty-eyed every time I hear it.

    I discovered Muse a couple of years back. I had no idea they were doing stuff back in the 90's.

  5. Still listen to Sarah MacLachlan on a regular basis. She's amazing and so talented. Loved seeing her live at Lilith Fair. Recently picked up my Matchbox 20 album again too mostly for "Push" (I think it is?)

  6. I love the first 3 songs! I have to admit, I haven't ever listened to the fourth song... :) I'm enjoying it now!

  7. Matchbox20 was the first REAL concert I went to. "Push" was their huge hit & I LOOOOOVED it at the time.

  8. -points at the Greenday song- Morbid I know but I want that sung at my funeral..I love it...I love Greenday...I love Billy Armstrong..Yeah..you can tell I am a fan!

  9. love us some Rob Thomas!
