Party like it's 1994

All this Jeff Buckley nostalgia got me thinking about all the other killer albums released in 1994. In addition to being the year that spawned Grace, a couple of West Coast slackers known as Pavement released Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and the prolific lo-fi reign of Guided By Voices continued with the release of their masterpiece, Bee Thousand, just to name a few albums that quickly come to mind.

Here is the playlist I would have listened to had I been hippest nine year old ever, and um not exposed to Ace of Base instead. Not that there's anything wrong with The Sign.

Range Life - Pavement

I Am a Scientist - Guided By Voices

Geronimo - The Divine Comedy

The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get - Morrissey

The Sign (Ace of Base cover) - The Mountain Goats

Oh and one more thing: expect the results of the mix madness contest to be posted shortly, along with complete downloads of all 31 songs.
