The thing with music is that it can launch you right back to a place that you either want to forget or stay. You’ll never win. I’m not one for using this as a means to express private feelings, as that is what they are, I’ll turn this around as an appreciation of 1995 rather than me being confused to fuck as to how I’m meant to feel today as it is 20 years since my dad died. I didn’t have any relationship really with him, but you don’t need to know and I don’t need to spill. As I’ve gone through and found some real delights that came out in 1995. I think most of it was just pure pop toss, but let’s be honest- there’s nothing better than 90s Mariah Carey. I realised also, that my love for Garbage has been alive and well for 20 years so you know, 1995 wasn’t totally shit. I won’t really write about the songs, I think the ones I’ve chosen speak for themselves.

So here you are, my 10 favourite songs from 1995:

I am fully aware that there are some wonderful dance/pop songs I have missed. Including Rhythm Of The Night..I know. I know.


If you go on YouTube..you will see that there’s a new Weezer track. However, if you live outside of America, you will discover that you CAN’T hear the new song.

HOWEVER! I’ve heard it and I may be rubbing salt in your Weezer wound..but it is bloody good. And I reckon the new album will be amazing! 🙂

A sneak preview of Weezer‘s new single, ‘Pork And Beans’, released on April 22, is available to listen to online.

A clip of the song is now being streamed on Amazon.com.

The song is taken from the highly-anticipated forthcoming album from the band, which is likely to be self-titled, as was the case for two previous Weezer albums.

A message on the Weezer website explains that the album is likely to be released on June 17 in the USA and have predominantly red artwork, fitting in with the band’s last two self-titled releases, known as ‘The Blue Album’ and ‘The Green Album’, respectively.

The album was produced by Rick Rubin, Jacknife Lee and the band, and mixed by Rich Costey.
