description:
The 90s were a time of major growth and development for me. I was 8 years old when I bought my first cd: Radiohead's Pablo Honey. A proud day for the music gods, but then my musical taste became exponentially worse by trendy standards. There may be a few gems in here, but the lot of them are guilty pleasures. I based this mix on all the songs that tend to rear their heads on a night of drunken karaoke. Because when it comes to what people want to hear when they're good and smashed - it's all about the 90s.

Ah, power ballads. The thing about this song is that people like to pretend they don't know it/hate it/think it's lame. But you get those people alone and a little buzzed: then they will magically know all the dramatic cadences and syllabic emphasism down to a t.

Not exactly of the grammy-winning caliber, but this song is guaranteed to make people laugh/dance/put on prosthetic noses. "My name is Humpty. Pronounced with a Umpty." Two words: fucking BRILLIANT.

Track 10 from Clerks II OST
Length: 00:06:27
Year: 1991
Track Description:
So this EXTENDED version was released in 1991, trying to capitalise on its previous success on the Silence of the Lambs OST. This reissued song was received much better, considering it's hard to shake your first success being marred by the picture of a psycho-killer wearing women-skin. Memories.

Track 2 from Hints Allegations & Things Left Unsaid

Year: 1994
Track Description:
So... I know I might get a bit of flack for this one, seeing as how it was the anthem for the Virginia Tech shooter who happened to be Korean, like me, and who happened to listen to this song about a million times a day, like me, and who also happened to have a completely rational obsession for weilding dangerous weapons, like me. Wait, what?

*In all seriousness, I really loved this song when I was younger and I really dont know why.

Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!
