Playlist: Where I Was In… 1998?

Even more 90’s songs for everyone who’s still interested? Or have I scare everyone away? Maybe nobody care anymore, oh well! I’m still having a bit of fun. Over the last couple of days I’ve give you or 105 songs and now for Friday morning yet another 50 more but I do promise to give it a break for the weekend, OK? Maybe, whoever care’s could catch up?

BTW both my 1989 and 1988 lists have been updated to 45 tracks now too! If you need more music? Looks like I’m going to get the 90’s decade finished first which is really no big surprise, I guess. Maybe I should do the last couple of years with a blindfold, both hands tie behind my back or something?

So who remembers that opening video clip re-working of Picnic At Hanging Rock movie which was the featured image for my 1975 list stars Magic Dirt singer Adalita? I did read she got her third solo album in the pipeline so fingers-crossed it’s out this year, she been working on it for couple already!

  1. Yep that’s the one! So bloody great. I remember I was way at the back of the amphitheatre and the lightning was just crazy. Can’t believe it was so long ago, I was just a young’un then! What’s your fave show of theirs? I mean, they’re always great, really! On a slight tangent, I just bought tix to see Xylouris-White for the June Melbourne show, just a bit excited!! Hope your weekend’s going great William! =)

    1. I’ve just put that disc on right now listening!
      Maybe, might be my fave D3 show would be @ PICA bar on Horse Stories tour, that’s an art gallery here but @ the Fly-by club down in Freo in the 2000’s were great too, the first one was the best and runner-up to PICA, the Ocean Songs shows where epic too, they played in a cinema just down the road in Leederville and came over here twice that time too!
      I was think I should do some flashback shows, gigs or something! Or sometime!
      You know? TFS are suppoting XW? No Perfff shows off course but I did see them @ NGV show a couple or more years now on one of my trips over east, they’re so great live too!
      Cheers Simone 🙂

  2. Oh. I see what you did there. I thought you’d have a full 100 songs to play. Dang. I forgot about Liz Phair and U2! I went to a U2 concert back in 97. It was one of the best besides Pearl Jam.

      1. OK, maybe just try that! that’s the youtube playlist link so that should work/play if you just go there? if you did wanna listen/play all 100 songs? hopefully? 🙂


      2. Nope! this is just getting totally silly now! Maybe just click on the watch on youtube bit on the now the three times embeeded playlist! Or watch later on youtube bit and hopefully it’s the whole playlist, maybe? 🙂
