New Countdown: Truly Alternative


Bishop Briggs

It's time for another episode of Alternative hits! I was thinking that so few of these songs are what would typically be thought of as "Alternative" in the 90's definition. And I think that's a very good thing.

Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday: 1996 (4 Weeks at #1)

This song found new life for me when it showed up in Pitch Perfect :)

Top Ten Tuesday (UK Edition): Shawn Mendes "Treat You Better"

I feel like I should not start near the top of the UK charts, because the likelihood that I'm going to pick a song that will eventually hit the Top Ten in the US is so much higher when I start from the top. So you know what? It was going to be DJ Snake featuring Justin Bieber this week (#2), but instead it's....this Drake song (#10) (the ellipses were me looking it up).

...nope. It's this Shawn Mendes song because there's no video for that Drake song. This song is at #9 on the UK Charts. It's at #12 on the US Charts. LOL and the original song I was going to do falls 12-19 this week, so maybe that would have been better. Oh well. :)

Throwback Thursday: 1997 (4 Weeks at #1)

 I mean, I know maybe there's something sort of cringe-worthy about this now, but when I watched this video again recently after not having seen it for years, I was hard-pressed to find it. I think this one might be kind of a classic?

Spice Girls - Wannabe (2/22-3/15)
