Ever have one of those nights that starts as ‘just a glass of wine’ and then all of a sudden it’s after midnight and you’re multiple bottles in and your friend’s husband is playing DJ for an impromptu 90s alt rock dance party? No? OK then.
I had one of those nights last night, in fact I had that exact night last night, and it was amazing. Not only for the good company but also because it reinvigorated my love of 90s music. And by 90s music, I mean that angsty, flannel-y, guitar-heavy sound that got me through my teen years (oh, the drama). You can have your Janet and your Britney and your Natalie Imbruglia. I’ll stick with Oasis and the Goo Goo Dolls and Collective Soul (Collective Soul! Totally forgot about you, sorry guys). Who am I kidding, I’ll take all of it. Hashtag child of the 90s.
I’m still rocking to these sweet tunes today and I wouldn’t be surprised if they stay in heavy rotation for awhile (thanks in part to a late-night playlist generation session via Spotify). I’m not one to hide my music from the world either, so take a listen to the playlist below. My guess is you’ll be tapping your foot along with me. Or head banging. Or drinking wine and dancing around your apartment singing Black Hole Sun at the top of your lungs. All of these are great options for a rockin’ Friday night.
