This is the last song I distinctly remember being a top 40 hit (that I liked) that owned a summer, in the way people would blast it in their cars, the way it would come on the radio and everyone would turn it up with the windows open and you could just hear it floating across the town. Before ipods/internet turned so much music appreciation inward (obviously not a bad thing, but I still enjoy the memory of this).


Fastball — The Way

 
That was last year? I think I repeated myself; seems like something I said a decade ago. 
 
This guy has a different take on it:

No need to hear a song which was played to death when it came out. Horrible engineering too. Sounds like it was recorded in a crocodile uterus.

I always thought Counting crows were like vanilla: Nice enough but not very interesting. Kind of like the music they'd play while you're doing your shopping. 
  
Not even vanilla to me, more like stale, crustless, cold, under-toasted Wonder® Bread with a miserly pat of margarine instead of butter.  Otherwise, they're okay.  To each his own.
hmm

Given that guy's explanation it made sense.  He was an adult, raising a family, not a teenager keenly listening to the radio like he, you, or I did when those venerated, classic rock radio staples you mentioned were still relatively new.  I didn't actively listen to "contemporary music" radio much in the '90s, but I heard a lot of those songs, including Soundgarden.  He's apparently from Northern Ireland, maybe Soundgarden wasn't played there much; he mentioned listening to several other popular bands of the era though.


Prolly so, can't help thinking he is the lucky one! lol

 
As long as he wasn't forced to listen to "MMMBop".

Were you really off the grid or just musically? We are headed that way, but I confess I will always want to keep my new music lifeline alive with an internet connection of some sort until it is no longer available anyway.

 
Pretty much, it was pre-internet and I just wasn't into local radio and didn't listen to and pop or rock. .. A lot of classical music or just nothing but the wind. Kind of miss it.

I spent a good chunk of the 90s digging up vintage country, gathering every recording by Hank Williams, stuff like that. I'm still at a loss to name a lot of 90s music. Rock historian Ed Ward recently discovered the Monkees. It didn't occur to him that there might be anything there (like we tend to be with any Top 40, right?).
