A Decade Ago in Music.- 1999 (Anyone else remember it)

So 1999 was the year that Prince sang about, and I was just sitting here thinking back to 1999. I remember Kid Rock was on the radio all the time with stuff like "Cowboy" and I was gearing up, reading some press ads about a new Michael Jackson album around the corner. (Invincible.)

Hard to believe all that was 10 years ago. Anyone else remember 1999 in music?
It seems like just yesterday, at least to me. I hear songs that were popular back then and go, "Wow, that couldn't have been 10 years ago. It feels like 2 years ago."

Wow..

As much as people complain about popular music today, I think it was much, much worse in 1999- Ricky Martin, Backstreet Boys, Creed, Kid Rock, etc. ill

Sorry i don't see the difference with today, if you think of Lady Gaga, Usher, Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas, ....wtf you're on about? it is equally rubbish

I agree.

But then again, there was still much emphasis on "SINGERS" as opposed to "trickers" lol

I remember "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas was friggin' everywhere that year. Other overplayed songs I can think off the top of my head: "Mambo No. 5" by Lou Bega, "Blue" by Eiffel 65, "I Try" by Macy Grey and "Steal My Sunshine" by Len.

1999 - The height of the trance in the world of dance music, you could actually go into most nightclubs in the UK and have a decent session on the dancefloor (a rarity these days), thanks to the likes of Nalin and Kane, ATB, Chicane, Underworld, Ferry Corsten, Oakenfold, Art of Trance, etc. Spent soooo many nights on dance floor during that year (finished my A-levels that summer so it was a long hot one!)....and Madonna had jumped on the trance bandwagon before it really got rolling the year before, proving once again when it comes to great dancefloor music she's always a step ahead of the pack!

Was it really a decade ago?! Damn!!!

I'm not saying it was as good as early 90s, 80s, 70s etc....but 1999 was still a lot better than now for music.

Those boybands like Backstreet Boys were better than a lot of the music out today.
There were better hip hop albums out than today: Dre 2001, Snoop Dogg's Tha Last Meal, Marshal Matthers LP etc.

R&B was better, too. R Kelly had his TP-2.com album, which is better than most R&B out now, and better than any of his music now!

I don't know about that R. Kelly album (it was kinda garbage to me except for a couple tunes like "Final Warning" and "R&B Thug"....).

1999 I thought was a nice year in music. There were alot more diffrent genres of music I liked and opened my ears to diffrent styles. I got in2 Kid Rock actually....Len was good...Backstreet came out with their last good album Millenium..N*sync was doing their little thing what whatever mess they had at the time...I liked that year in music actually. Macy Gray "Why Didnt You Call Me" was part of that year.... dancing jig That was the first time in years that the sound of funk was kind of coming back in again thanks to Erykah Badu and Maxwell.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

What I voted as my top ten albums at the end of 1999:





Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
Faith And The Muse - Evidence Of Heaven
Moby - Play
Kelis - Kaleidoscope
Chemical Brothers - Surrender
The Creatures - Anima Animus
Fiona Apple - When The Pawn...
Tori Amos - To Venus And Back
Wolfsheim - Spectators
Mary J Blige - Mary

I must not have liked that Chemical Brothers album much as time went on. I sold it on ebay a few years later. confused

1999..

Britney Spears didn't win me over with her first single, but "Sometimes", "You Drive Me Crazy (Stop! Remix)" and her medley at the MTV European Awards made me come around, lol.

Christina Aguilera was liked from the start.. remember reading a review of "Genie In a Bottle" in Entertainment Weekly. They gave the song an A-, but gave..

Fiona Apple's cover of "Across the Universe" a C+ (which I disagreed with then, and still do to this day). Her album When the Pawn... was and still is brilliant. She was my top artist around this time.

Although I was discovering Tori Amos and Rufus Wainwright around the same time as well.

Total Request Live was really big at this time (keep in mind, that I was an impressionable 14 year old lol ). My diet consisted of a lot of it.

Also read lots of Rolling Stone and Spin around this time.. still have "The Top 90 Records of the 90's" issue somewhere..

And that issue of Spin introduced artists of which there was little acquaintance beforehand..

Chief among them.. P.J. Harvey.

Oh! And I was into the Rage Against the Machine song that was in that god-awful Roland Emmerich "Godzilla" remake. lol

More memories to be remembered for sure, but these were fresh.

There were better hip hop albums out than today: Dre 2001, Snoop Dogg's Tha Last Meal, Marshal Matthers LP etc.

R&B was better, too. R Kelly had his TP-2.com album, which is better than most R&B out now, and better than any of his music now!

TP-2 came out in '00.

1999 was the year Pop music went to shit! and R&B was slowly declining as well disbelief

I Want It That Way was from that year, and I think that's the greatest pure pop song of the last 20 years.

All of the following would be 4 or 4 1/2 star albums for me:

The Fall - The Marshall Suite
Smog - Knock Knock
Bonnie Prince Billie - I See A Darkness
Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs
Shelby Lynne - I Am Shelby Lynne

And I really liked these ones, but wouldn't rate them quite so highly:

Apples in Stereo - Her Wallpaper Reverie
Built to Spill - Keep It Like A Secret
Jim O'Rourke - Eureka
Randy Newman - Bad Love
Pavement - Terror Twilight
Sam Prekop - s/t

That's quite a bit more than what I'd be able to list from the last year or two, but that's a reflection of how much new music I listen to these days (almost none), and that doesn't have much to do with quality.

As much as people complain about popular music today, I think it was much, much worse in 1999- Ricky Martin, Backstreet Boys, Creed, Kid Rock, etc. ill


I agree with THAT^ one. Creed was and still is one of THE most OVERrated bands in rock & roll history. Even today, I still don't seen OR hear any thing great about them at all.

Sorry i don't see the difference with today, if you think of Lady Gaga, Usher, Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas, ....wtf you're on about? it is equally rubbish


1. Lady Gaga is the potential David Bowie for her generation, NOT to mention her performance artwork is inspired by The Illuminati.

2. Usher had done well with his own career since his debut in the mid 90's. He is THE only artist (besides The Beatles & The Bee Gees) the ever have 3 hit songs in the top 10 of Billboards Hot 100 Singles charts at the same time from one album (Confessions). And yes, his talent was inspired by the late Michael Jackson.

3. Kanye West is a douche bag! biggrin NEXT!!!

4.

Although, their debut album was released in 1998, THIS^ was hail as one of the best alternative rap albums of 1999. At the time, The BEPs were like the west coast version of A Tribe Called Quest.

Even today, a lot of orgers here are more fans of this version of the BEPs with Kim Hill than of the BEPs with Fergie.

1999 - The height of the trance in the world of dance music, you could actually go into most nightclubs in the UK and have a decent session on the dancefloor (a rarity these days), thanks to the likes of Nalin and Kane, ATB, Chicane, Underworld, Ferry Corsten, Oakenfold, Art of Trance, etc. Spent soooo many nights on dance floor during that year (finished my A-levels that summer so it was a long hot one!)....and Madonna had jumped on the trance bandwagon before it really got rolling the year before, proving once again when it comes to great dancefloor music she's always a step ahead of the pack!

Was it really a decade ago?! Damn!!!


I was never a fan of trance. I always felt that it was one of THE worst genre in electronic music. And besides, I still feel that breakbeats, electro, and french house was WAY better genres in 1999.

Growing out of that phase has been really enlightening lol

That was a good album! "Joints + Jams", "Movement", "Fallin' Up", "Love Won't Wait (ft. Macy Gray)" were the jam. smile
