Better Than Ezra

Better Than Ezra - Desperately Wanting

I’ve been on a 90s kick in my bathroom lately. I know that sounds odd, but I’ve got this old school stereo sitting on my bathroom counter (and by “old school” I mean a Bose stereo c. 2000) where I play nothing but CDs from my media shelf…while I shower and shave and whatnot.

I love how odd, yet incredibly relate-able, the lyrics are from the 90s. "Sleeping is easy / I used to lay in bed for hours" from Better Than Ezra’s “WWOZ” and "You’re naked inside your fear / You can’t take back all those years" from Goo Goo Dolls “Naked” (…easily their best album, A Boy Named Goo). “And music is my aeroplane” from Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Aeroplane” and “‘Cause I have found / All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade / Away again” from Fuel’s “Shimmer”.

And what about probably the best sophomore effort ever by a group? Our Lady Peace’s Clumsy was incredible. “Superman’s Dead”? Man that album rocked…the opening lyrics: "Do you worry that you’re not liked / How long till you break / You’re happy cause you smile / But how much can you fake?" Seriously? The 90s were great. Those of you born during the 90s and not really familiar with the music? Go get your library card’s equivalent for music and check out how great the post-grunge movement was. I promise, it’s worth it.
