In 1994, Warren G. & Nate Dogg made their debut on the music scene. Warren G. made a song in his appartment, with his musical equipment stored in a bedroom. With no furniture in the appartment and his the poo of his dog all over the floor, he still asked Nate Dogg to record his part. Warren G. made a microphone in the closet, so Nate Dogg could record his part. In the song, there is also a sample from Michael McDonald (I Keep Forgettin’), a dialogue from the movie Young Guns and a quote from Bob James. All together, it made a number 2 hit in the US and a number 5 hit in the UK. Enjoy

Song of the day: Kristine W.- Feel What You Want

In the nineties, while house still was going strong, Kristine W. had a big hit. In 1994, the song Feel What You Want ended up on number one in the US and the UK, both on the club tracks chart. She has an amazing voice, so that might be one of the causes that it was number one… And still it´s one of the best songs to dance on from the nineties. Enjoy

Song of the day: Soundgarden- Black Hole Sun

Soundgarden-Black-Hole-Sun

A rock song by Black Hole Sun, written by Chris Cornell. Though it’s one of the best known songs of the nineties and by the band Soundgarden, but it has not made the Billboard Hot 100, due to the commercial release of the single. The song has been written in about 15 minutes, and according to Cornell, the song is very Beatlesque. About that can be argued, but it’s one of the best songs from 1994. Enjoy

Song of the day: Primal Scream- Rocks

Primal+Scream+-+Rocks

This is one of the rare double A-side singles! The group Primal Scream released the single in 1994, with two songs (as usual), namely Rocks and Funky Jam. The single did good in the charts, reaching number 7 in the UK. The song was the first indication that Primal Scream was changing their style (the album from 1991 was more a dance album) and that they would rock more. Their inspiration were the Stones and the Faces, and the nice thing is that Rod Stewart (singer of the Faces) would later cover it. Let’s rock! Enjoy

Song of the day: Big Mountain- Baby I Love Your Way

The story of today starts in the year 1975. Peter Frampton (Show Me The Way) releases a single called Baby I Love Your Way. In some countries it is a hit, in the US the single reaches place 12. In 1994 a movie called Reality Bites comes in existence. There is a need for a soundtrack, so the band Big Mountain is called to make a song. They choose the song Baby, I Love Your Way, and make a reggae song of it. It even becomes a bigger hit than the original, reaching number 6 in the US and number 2 in the UK! In the movie, there still is a reference to the original song. A character called Michael Grates explains how the song by Peter Frampton came into existence. Enjoy

Song of the day: Ace Of Base- The Sign

Ace Of Base - The Sign (1994)

More dance coming to you! In 1994, Ace of Base had another hit, after All That She Wants in 1993. This time, the hit was slightly smaller, but for me, the song is better! The nice thing is that they came from Sweden. After the nineties, it seemed there was a wall around Sweden, since we didn’t hear a lot from there. But now they are back! Enjoy
