Five on Friday - 1993

In honor of my youngest daughter's birthday this past Monday, I have chosen five songs from the year of Jamie's birth for this week's Five on Friday - the fun meme that Travis hosts every week.

As hard as it is for me to believe, when I started going through songs from 1993 it dawned on me that I knew darned few of them.  Did I really not listen to music hardly at all that year?  Seriously?  How did that happen?  Music has always been a major part of my life but apparently not in 1993 and that bothers me a little bit though it doesn't mean that I was in a complete and total musical void and there were some that rung a bell or hit the right note!

It's a bit of an odd and eclectic mix but I hope you'll find something here that you enjoy! Surprisingly I actually found some that Amanda knew so they must not be that bad!

  1. I don't know ANY of those. I pretty much ignored most of the music in the 80's and 90's. I'm not crazy about what I heard on the radio back then.

    The year of the Jaime. hahahaha!

    How's MD?

    Big hugs :)

    I remember this time period quite well! My oldest son was born in 1994, but I married my hubby in 1993, and these songs really take me back! Great musical choices.

  3. You got me thinking. I can't really remember anything that was in the music charts when my kids were born either - I think we had other things on our minds! ;)

  4. I remember All I Wanna Do but not the rest. I'm kind of with Barb about that era of music.

    I like Ordinary World though.

    Have a terrific day and weekend ahead Linda. Big hug. :)

  5. Now all I wanna do is dance.
    Thanks a LOT, Linda!


  6. We must have gone down the same rabbit hole. The only one I recognized was the Sheryl Crow song. You were probably busy being pregnant. I don't have an excuse.

  7. I remember when I knew all the cars and what year they were made. Then suddenly I didn't even know the companies who made cars.

    Same with music I fear.

    The Proclaimers is my favorite group!

  8. Great set,I enjoyed listening to these songs.

  9. That was the new beginning of modern rock. I love that era. But I was at a radio station that turned to modern rock. It was when Generation X said, "Screw classic rock." Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Counting Crows and Crow and Alanis all started then. It was a HUGE change...

  10. I love Heart Shaped Box!

  11. I wasn't listening to radio back then either, but I did recognize each of these songs. The Sheryl Crow as my favorite from this Set, if I had to pick.

    Happy weekend!


Thanks for visiting!
