Playlist: Yearly 1995 list

So for Wednesday’s mid-week post it’s back to my 90’s playlists and I’ve got up to the halfway point of that decade today! It’s yet another 120 song long playlist on YouTube just above but giving you now another option a little down!

Before we get to anything else for this year’s playlist I’m going to do my little flashback award show for this year, previous I’ve buried these in the opening paragraphs somewhere but going breaking it down and giving them a line each, it’s totally amazing shit! So what do they win? Nothing really but the very best video clip does get moved to the first song on my yearly playlist, Aussie album does have a track very early in the track listing and an oversea album’s song gets to kick start them after all the Aussies/Kiwis have finished. Might go back and edit into this for the last few posts to make it very clear or something? So if you’ve missed them or wanna go back for the rest of those updated mid to late 90’s playlists, links to 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999. What would you say are your own fave/best albums and video clips of this year? Drum roll, my little award shows go to:

The best/my favorite video clip for song of 1995 was Everything’s Fucked by Dirty Three

The best/my favorite “Aussie Album” of 1995 was Soft ‘N’ Sexy Sound by Dave Graney ‘N’ The Coral Snakes

The best/my favorite “Overseas Album” of 1995 was King For A Day, Fool For A Life by Faith No More

For everyone bitching and moaning about YouTube here it is on motherfuckin’ Spotify tooooo but it’s down to only 100 songs:

I cheated by using some convert thingy but some songs seem are totally missing but you’re going to have to figure out which ones those are yourself? Off course, I don’t have to tell you but if the song has video clip you really can’t see it on Spotify. Anyway you might like to listen on that? I don’t really use it so please let us know if that’s a good idea or I might NOT do this again!

A few more little things to point out in this playlist: Aussie acts again at the very start adding up to 43 (in the YouTube playlist) plus also got three Kiwi acts at almost the end of that bit. Included next is Chris Haskett solo instrumental track but it’s guesting the late great Aussie guitarist Rowland S. Howard on it which at number 47 so it’s kind-of half and half so I tagged it at that point, just as the oversea acts bit starts. Dirty Three put out their self-titled debut studio but also drop kind-of demo tape recordings too so they have a couple of tracks from each. Nick Cave did his famous duet with Kylie Minogue, now including it because previously I had the B-side but the Murder Ballads album itself wasn’t released until the following year in early 1996. Also NC appeared on the various artists Batman Forever soundtrack so I couldn’t help myself and included that tooo. Regurgitator released a couple of EPs in one year so once again had to have a song from each of both of them. Those are the doubles this time and kind-of reasons why I broken my one song per artist rule yet again! If anyone is interested? According to YouTube at this time has had a grand total of 267 views, well that’s what it says which is more popular than that SOTD one I posted earlier this month. I started making these yearly playlist a couple ago, I think? Most likely add more to them so anything you think I should have on it? Something I’ve forgotten? Oh yeah, I’ve NOT done 95 in that 1001 albums you must hear before you die book but I’ve NOT been very good at listening/blogging about that lately.

Ending tiny note about today’s featured image: let’s pick a French movie this time around as one of the very best films of 1995! The City of Lost Children who was directed by both Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet and continuing highlighting the female lead as the post’s feature image which seems it’s another childhood actress who stealing the show…

Judith Vittet as Miette in The City of Lost Children movie.

Cheers! 🙂



    1. Oh right, did you have 95 one or is that all the 90’s? I think, you told me this or something like this before, you know? Like the two of us has or how music taste is so different! I guess, that’s pretty right but “Take A Bow” is bloody great song, would be one of my most faves by her toooo! You didn’t say but if you did have a little listen to the 95 playlist, I hope you enjoyed it? Cheers 🙂

      1. I basically had my musical head up my ass throughout most of the 90s, so did not like very much 90s music. I don’t remember 1995 as a particularly good year, music-wise, but “Take A Bow” was far and away my favorite song that year. I still listened to mostly mainstream Top 40 stuff back then, so never heard a lot of the songs on your list. Another favorite of mine on your list is Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”, although it came out in 1996. I also like “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” by U2.

        You’re gonna cringe, but here are my top 10 faves for 1995, most of which are basically easy listening pop. Also odd for me is that most are female artists, which I liked more back then, but not so much today:

        1. Take A Bow – Madonna
        2. Fantasy – Mariah Carey
        3. Believe – Elton John
        4. Kiss From A Rose – Seal
        5. No More “I Love You’s” – Annie Lennox
        6. As I Lay Me Down – Sophie B. Hawkins
        7. When I Come Around – Green Day
        8. Strong Enough – Sheryl Crow
        9. You Oughta Know – Alanis Morissette
        10. The Sweetest Days – Vanessa Williams

      2. LOL, your funny and like how you put it! Oh yeah, most deaf Pumpkins and U2 are cool tracks tooooo! Well yeah, that’s very pop top ten, I didn’t really numbered mine but I guess, most likely faves get added first, for the re-jig putting all the Aussies kick-off, trying for nice follow like how I did old mixtapes, remember them? I put You Oughta Know on/in 96 playlist, have i got the wrong year? maybe, it still was in charts because it very popular for very long time. Some reason Madonna crossed over to me, where other mainstream pop acts never did, i don’t why? she’s a little more edgy or something maybe? Can I ask, what about an album of 95, you got one? I named a couple above in the post or maybe was just the hit singles for you! Cheers mate 🙂

      3. I didn’t buy very many albums that year either. About the only ones I can remember were “Bedtime Stories” by Madonna, which I basically bought to have “Take A Bow”, and Elton John’s “Made in England”, which I bought for “Believe” and “Blessed”. Remember that back in the mid-90s, there was no such thing as streaming or YouTube, so if you wanted a song you had to buy the single or the album. I rarely listened to either of those albums, and just put those songs onto a mixtape I made. I later bought a used CD of Mariah Carey’s “Daydream”, which has “Fantasy”, “Always Be My Baby” and “One Sweet Day”, and a friend made a copy of Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill”.

      4. Oh yeah, none of that stream shit back then but Mixtapes were great fun back then toooooo! Kind-of figured by what you saying before, just had to ask about albums? Cheers, have a good weekend 🙂

  1. This was a very good year for music, in general, and “The City of Lost Children” is easily one of my Top 20 fave films. Do you know “Delicatessen”, also by Caro & Jeunet? Another great one 🙂 Cheers, William
