"You don't have to have the solution..."

I realised as I unzipped the CD wallets last night that I've never given you a rundown of a setlist for the 90s Night. So, as if to provoke numerous angry reactions from Valentine Suicide, this was what the midweek dirty stopout Stopfordians got last night:

George Michael & Mary J Blige "As"
Big Mountain "Baby I Love Your Way"
Lionel Richie "My Destiny"
Lighthouse Family "Ocean Drive"
Black Box "Fantasy"
JT & the Big Family "Moments In Soul"

Family Stand "Ghetto Heaven"
Electribe 101 "Talking With Myself"
Soho "Hippychick"
Saint Etienne "You're In A Bad Way"
Young Disciples "Apparently Nothin'"

Everything But The Girl "Wrong"
M People "One Night In Heaven"
2 In A Room "Wiggle It"
Adventures of Stevie V "Dirty Cash"
Shamen "Phorever People"
Happy Mondays "Step On"
Charlatans "The Only One I Know"
Northside "Take 5"
Divine Comedy "Something For The Weekend"
Inspiral Carpets "Saturn 5"
Cast "Sandstorm"
Babybird "You're Gorgeous"
Oasis "Don't Look Back In Anger"
Bluetones "Slight Return"
Blur "Song 2"
Stone Roses "I Wanna Be Adored"
Stereophonics "Pick A Part That's New"
Stiltskin "Inside"
Ugly Kid Joe "Cats In The Cradle"
Nirvana "Come As You Are"
They Might Be Giants "Birdhouse In Your Soul"
Lenny Kravitz "Are You Gonna Go My Way"
Prince "Cream"
Eagle Eye Cherry "Save Tonight"

Beautiful South "Don't Marry Her"
Go West "The King Of Wishful Thinking"
Del Amitri "Always The Last To Know"
Sugar Ray "Every Morning"
Guns n Roses "Yesterdays"
Primal Scream "Movin' On Up"
Mr Big "To Be With You"
Right Said Fred "Deeply Dippy"
Deep Blue Something "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
Def Leppard "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad"

Very guitar-based in the second half, untypically. The array of 90s chuckaway pop I'd normally play - Take That, Gabrielle, Madonna, Spice Girls, 5ive - got the night off as we were unusually bloke-heavy last night and they kept asking for rockier stuff.

Within the above list is my all-time favourite song of the 1990s. Any guesses?

It's got to be Go West?

Bright Ambassador said...

2 in a Room, clearly.

Matthew Rudd said...

Heh, wrong on both counts.

Lee Slator said...

Divine Comedy by any chance?

Matthew Rudd said...


Valentine Suicide said...

Never angry, Matt! I'm sure the Stepfordwives(?) had a sensational time.

I've become such a musical snob, I can only bear to listen to Brazilian eunuchs playing solid silver spoons..

Is is Deeply Dippy?

Matthew Rudd said...

Stepford Wives? Heh. Stopfordian = resident of Stockport.

I "sang" Deeply Dippy at the TVC karaoke night but it isn't my favourite of the 90s.

My guess would be Lenny Kravitz...
