description:
When I entered this mix, there were only two entries for Team '90-'97 playing against four for the other team. Rise Up! I'm not a rock critic and/or historian, but I play one on t.v. Very good arguments may be made for both teams, but my fomitive music years are represented here.

Omissions include "All Aplogies", "The Number Song", "Bring the Noise", "Cro-Aloha", "Goin' Out West" and "Welcome to the Terrordome".

1 Deee-Lite : Deee-Lite Theme
Incredibly funky, upbeat opener from one of my favorite tape A-sides. Deee-Lite doesn't age. Get on board.

Another great track from a great album. This has the power to crush any bad mood I may fester in. Popular alternative in-crowd music today owes a debt to 4AD and incredible artists like Cocteau Twins.

Year: 1990
Track Description:
I'm torn to include a track from Wish or Wild Mood swings, but I'm going with the first song that stuck out to me from one of the first tapes I ever purchased. Bury me with this song, thank you. Granted this is a remix of an -eh- song, made into an great, dreamy popcicle o' niceness.

Track 8 from Violator

Year: 1990
Track Description:
1990 was a great year. I love this song. I'm not a fan of the full version, so I'm including an edit of the song. You can do that with tapes. I will always associate this song with a picture I worshiped of Rebecca Gayheart when she was a JC Penny model. Amazing track.

Length: 00:04:14
Year: 1990
Track Description:
This song helped me base jump 500 feet off a bridge into the Snake River. Sure, I had a static line, but when you face that drop, you either need to muster the courage or be pushed off. This song got me very psyched in my frozen moment of need. What energy.

Track 5 from Glider - EP

Year: 1990
Track Description:
Would Blond Redhead have released the same albums without the MBV blueprint? I'm glad I will never know the difference. Loveless has been well picked over, so I'm going with something that could have just as easily been on Loveless.

Track 10 from Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
Length: 00:04:10
Year: 1990
Track Description:
"Joy" closes a favorite album of mine and the 1990 chapter of this mix. I like to think that a lot of the female vocalists that I enjoy hearing today were somehow influenced by this band and Harriet Wheeler's voice. This voice was a sub for not having a girlfriend in high school. This fits very well with a Carla Bruni, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Keren Ann and Francois Hardy mix.

Track Description:
Crazy like a fox! The Belle & Sebastian template resonates strong today. When I hear new music that sounds cool like a B&S song, I think, "Wow this is great, but I'll save my monoy and go listen to Tigermilk." 1990-1997 has nothing to prove. The proof is in the puddin.

Despite the fact that TEAM ROBOT was crushed like a Pabst can at a frat party by the might claws of TEAM MONSTER, you are still deserving of a badge... Loser.

TEAM 97 -- Third Place
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!
