Seanin90s - a Spotify nostalgia mixtape




Before DiS embarks on a review of the Noughties, I've been taking my own personal voyage back to the 90s in an attempt to set a watermark for what the 00s need to live upto (especially as I don't want our list of the decade to be some indier than thou misrepresentation , although it will obvs feature Postal Service).

Here's my contribution :

It's not really a best song compilation, but rather a "one song from each of my favourite album of the 90's (if available on Spotify)".

Hope it's relevant though ;-)

Nice list... Any chance of a slimmed-down Spotify playlist?

Moreover, why isn't someone putting on a night for really choice 90s selections like this...?

I guess it would be tough to market it coherently - particularly separating it from the dire britpop rehash nights - but it would be an awesome proposition.

Nice to see some dEUS on there but I think you picked the wrong tune. Should have been Instant Street.
