90s Playlist You Should Save
We had our hands on a playlist by Tutan with his favorite selections from 90s and era that is sometimes called the last great era in music.
What to expect?
Boul ma sene, boul ma guiss madi re nga fokni mane!
7 seconds away
Just as long as I stay
I'll be waiting
7 Seconds - a song composed by Youssou N'Dour, Neneh Cherry,Cameron McVey andJonathan Sharp. Released in 1994, it stayed in Number #1 position for 16 weeks in France, a record at the time.
Don't be fooled by the afro beat, all instruments on the single were produced and arranged by Swedish music producer Christian Falk, who also played bass on the track.
The title and refrain of the song refers to the first moments of a child's life; as
Cherry put it, "not knowing about the problems and violence in our world.''
Ooh, baby, I love your way, everyday, yeah!
Big Mountain Version -
Originally a song written and performed by English singer Peter Frampton. It was released in September 1975.
In 2017, Frampton talked to lawmakers about inequitable revenue payments from streaming music services like iTunes and Spotify.
"For 55 million streams of 'Baby I Love Your Way', I got $1,700," said Frampton. "Their jaws dropped and they asked me to repeat that for them."
The song was recorded by the American reggae/pop band Big Mountain in 1993, I was 6 years old then but by ten i was dancing to it because my daddy used to sing it to me all the time.
We all get hurt by love
And we all have our cross to bear
by Kylie Minogue.
Recorded by Australian singer Kylie Minogue. But which Kylie Minogue?
The INDIE Kylie :)
The track production was handled by British trio Brothers in Rhythm who are resposinble for the elements of indie music, and Middle Eastern instrumentation such as strings and percussion, whilst the lyrical content talks about Minogue's earnest of seduction and manipulating people to confide into her.
It's a classic.
Livin' in the gangsta's paradise
'Coz I've been blastin' and laughin' so long, that
Even my mama thinks that my mind is gone.
A great song by American rapper Coolio, a term that later on sticked to mean many fantastic things in my life.
One of the best selling singles of all time begins with a line from Psalm 23:4: "As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death", but then diverges with: "I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left." Adding to some of the religious overtones are choral vocals in the background. Talk about the right twist.
Coolio freestyled the first couple of lines, with the rest of the lyrics coming to him quickly in one sitting. He would later claim that the writing of the song was divine interventionsaying "'Gangsta’s Paradise' wanted to be born; it wanted to come to life, and it chose me as the vessel."
Due to the sampling of Stevie Wonder's music, "Gangsta's Paradise" is one of the few Coolio tracks that does not contain any profanity, as Wonder himself would not allow it.
The music video of the song featured Michelle Pfeiffer reprising her earlier role in Dangerous Minds. Another movie that has it's own place in our hearts.
