Music I loved in the 90s.

After a conversation on Twitter with Sasha Devlin about music, I started thinking about the first albums I purchased in my late teens and early twenties.  I had my Discman and a handful of CDs. I used to listen to them as I walked to work.

These are the ones I remember. I’m sure there were others.

  • Matchbox 20
  • Hanson
  • Shakira
  • Roxette
  • Jarabe De Palo
  • Third Eye Blind
  • Tracy Chapman

So, Shakira, Tracy  Chapman, and Jarabe de Palo came from when I moved to Santo Doming at 19 and lived there for two years.  The rest I got when I was 18.

I think I listened to the first Matchbox 20 album at least three times a day. It soothed my angst-ridden soul.

How about you?

What were the first albums you remembered listening to?
