    The Clinton era started out auspiciously enough with the first World Trade Center bombing and Waco but people seemed more interested in wondering what was Seinfeld and his bunch up to this week. Musically, it was a year of scandal, or at least with Michael Jackson anyway. No longer was it about hyperbaric chambers and pet chimps or even Neverland. Now he was in serious trouble as he was being investigated for child molestation, something that would follow him around for at least a dozen years.

    As far as the music itself, grunge and hip hop continued to dominate. Suede was the big band this year in my book, but Counting Crows also debuted this year. Radiohead also released their debut album this year though itís safe to say they would fare much better in the years to come.

    To say that this was a sad and bizarre year would be an understatement. We already had the Woody Allen-Soon Yi scandal to sour the taste of many movie fans but now the sports world would be tainted as well, even worse really by way of OJ Simpson and the infamous Bronco speed chase that interrupted the NBA Finals. Simpson would dominate the news over the next year and a half and wouldnít truly disappear until a botched robbery attempt in Las Vegas netted him a lengthy prison sentence. Simpson, and his successful attempt to get away with murder, would affect race relations for years and not in a good way.

    Then there was the music world. No, there wasnít any major scandals as Michael Jackson and Madonna behaved themselves this year, but there was a shocking death that I compare to Jim Morrison, not John Lennon as some zealot suggested (he was famous but he wasnít that famous). Anyway, Iím talking about the Kurt Cobain suicide that would have a major impact on the grunge scene in particular. I could go on about Cobainís depression and drug use but that is, perhaps, for another thread. In any event, it was the dominant popular music event of the year.

    There were some new faces in 1994 including Beck and an indie band I really liked called Guided By Voices. They had my favorite album that year in Bee Thousand. Another one I really liked was Sam Phillips and her Martinis and Bikinis. Indie rock is starting to enter my radar by this point and youíll see more and more indie songs on my charts, or at least on the few I have left (Iím lumping the entire 21st century together). Anyway, without any further adieuÖ

    1. Loser- Beck

    While we digested the OJ trial and the tragedy at Oklahoma City, we got to be treated to the likes of Hootie and the Blowfish, the darlings of VH-One. Needless to say, no I didnít want any Hootie. It was another big year for Gangsta Rap, while TLC had a monster year in the R&B circles. Alternative rock though seemed to be at a crossroads as the mainstream modern rock was becoming engulfed in the new indie rock movement while more heavy metal/rap tendencies began to be played on modern rock radio, or at least on WHFS anyway.
    This was also the last year I listened to commercial rock radio preferring instead to listen to oldies. I would do that for a long time and wouldnít discover the music I was missing for almost a decade. So, while much of this chart is from the music I heard on the radio, some of it is music I will have discovered years later, like the number one song even, a huge hit in the UK, but totally unknown in the US.

    And here we are in the year of the Macarena. It was something you couldnít get away from but boy did we wish we could. Musically, it was a big year for the likes of No Doubt and Garbage while Coolio dominated the rap charts. Mariah Carey and Boyz 2 Men too had big years.

    For me though, it was a big year for indie rock. By now I was strictly an oldies listener having been turned off by the rap metal that was posing as alternative rock these days. And Limp Bizkit hadnít even hit yet. Anyway, The Eels and Stereolab score big on my list this year as does the great Johnny Cash, now in the early part of his American Recordings period.

    It was the year we lost Princess Diana. It was also the year of Tubthumping and the Spice Girls. I think Hanson was still doing pretty well too at this point.

    But it was also the year of OK Computer, probably the most raved about album in almost two decades. Not since The Wall had an album received so much critical fanfare. And it was deserved to, as it is also among my all time favorite albums. It was also another great year for Indie rock as Yo La Tengo and the Dandy Warhols are prominent on my chart.

    It was the year Bill Clinton swore he didnít sleep with that woman, only he did, and he got himself impeached for it. It was also the year we had to endure Celine Dionís My Heart Will Go On as the movie Titanic, released in 1997, was reaching saturation status through much of 1998. Shania Twain and Destinyís Child also had big years on the pop charts.

    For me though, it was about Elliott Smith, one of the best, and sadly rather tragic, singer songwriters ever, as well as the quirky Neutral Milk Hotel and the bluesy Gomez. It is certainly a respite from the Limp Bizkit style music that was going on what was once Album oriented rock radio. Anyway, if you looked, youíll find some pretty cool music in the late nineties and 1998 was no exception.

    It was the year everyone panicked about the Y2K bug because somebody forgot to do something on the global computer back in 1967 or something. What did he do? What would happen on midnight on December 31? Iíll give you a hint: nothing.

    Anyway, this last full year Iím covering was a big year for the boy bands as well as the girl pop singers, notably one Britney Spears, who would, in a few years, put Madonna to shame when it came to scandals. For now though, she was just a cutie pie who made the cover of Rolling Stone.

    As for me, it was a big year for Moby (who was also actually popular, go figure) as well as for Wilco, probably my favorite band of the Millennium. Indeed I like this year from an individual songs standpoint. The Elephant Six bands are prominent on my chart, particularly Of Montreal, who had my favorite album this year with The Gay Parade. The Elephant Six artists, a group of psychedelic pop bands, deserves its own thread one of these days. Anyhow, we end the twentieth century with this slate so enjoyÖ
