Check out the Original post here (along with videos): 15-songs-from-the-90s-every-canadian-will-remember/
There is a distinct difference between growing up in Canada and everywhere else in the ’90s. While we can all remember the hits by the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears or even Nirvana, only Canadians will look back fondly on acts like Moist or Love Inc. Back in the day, Much would spin those videos so much that it’s almost impossible to forget how handsome The Moffatt brothers looked or the colourful videos of Prozzak. Those were things that surely had some success outside of Canada, but Canadians will always hold dearest to their nostalgic hearts.
Here are 15 songs from the ’90s that Canadians will definitely remember the most:
1. The Moffatts — Girl Of My Dreams
Ah, Canada’s answer to Hanson. …
2. Love Inc. — Superstar
If you went back to the days when Much would host Electric Circus, Toronto act Love Inc. would probably come to mind as Canadian Eurodance stars. …
3. Sarah McLachlan — Sweet Surrender
Sarah McLachlan was a big effin’ deal in Canada back in the day. …
4. Snow — Informer
Although people outside of Canada will recognize this song, Canadians will forever remember rapper Snow and his big hit Informer. …
5. Moist — Push
Here are two names all Canadians will know: Moist and David Usher. …
6. Serial Joe — Mistake
This is probably considered as one of the most memorable one hit wonders in Canadian music. In retrospect, Serial Joe is kind of like what Justin Bieber would look like if he joined a rock band. …
7. Len — Steal My Sunshine
How awesome was this song? Like, seriously.
8. Rascalz — Northern Touch
Long before Drake came onto the scene, Kardinal Offishall, Thrust, Checkmate and Choclair were at the forefront of Canada’s hip hop scene and together, they gave us one of the best tracks of the ’90s, Northern Touch.
9. Prozzak — Sucks To Be You
Nothing is more ’90s than the animated duo Prozzak….
10. Bran Van 3000 — Drinking In L.A.
Drinking In L.A.? More like drinking in Montreal (with a side of poutine).
11. Tal Bachman — She’s So High
This Canadian wrote one of our fave songs of the ’90s, which is pretty much a karaoke staple for us nowadays. …
12. Bass Is Base — I Cry
Another noted one hit wonder, Bass Is Base’s I Cry made it big in 1996 and they even won a Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording. …
13. Sky — Love Song
Here’s a thing I’ve noticed every time I talk about Sky: no one remembers their name, but once you hum the tune of Love Song or Some Kind Of Wonderful, it automatically hits them. ….
14. Our Lady Peace — Superman Is Dead
Our Lady Peace’s Clumsy will probably go down as one of the best Canadian albums of the ’90s and it’s all thanks to songs like Superman Is Dead. ….
15. Bryan Adams feat. Melanie C — When You’re Gone
Remember when your fave Spice Girl teamed up with Canadian singer Bryan Adams and it was like your wildest dreams had come true? UGH, THIS SONG IS SO GOOD I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS.
