Tesla – Signs

Posted in 1990 on December 29, 2006 by pelicancup

In 1990, Tesla released a live all-acoustic album entitled, Five Man Acoustical Jam. At the time, there weren’t a lot of hard rock bands playing acoustic sets, and this video was a milestone. It wasn’t long after this video that you started seeing a lot of other bands performing acoustic sets and MTV Unplugged was launched. Enjoy the video!

Editor’s Note 3/17/07: Unfortunately, YouTube has been cracking down on music videos uploaded to their site. The official video for Signs is no longer available, but I found this one of the band performing live in New York. It’s a great version of the song live…

The Soup Dragons – I’m Free

Posted in 1990, Soup Dragons on December 28, 2006 by pelicancup

1990 was a very diverse year in music. I loved all types of music, and the Soup Dragons CD, Lovegod, was one of my favorites. I was a sophomore in college when this CD was released, and we played this song, I’m Free, many, many late nights after coming in from partying all night. It’s one of those songs that needs to be played very loud and you need to be really drunk to really enjoy the song. Enjoy the video!

Jane’s Addiction – Been Caught Stealing

Posted in 1990, Jane's Addiction on December 27, 2006 by pelicancup

This is one of the best songs that Jane’s Addiction ever recorded. The video is great. I just watched the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicholas Cage and Angelina Jolie, and this song is featured in the movie. It spent four weeks at the #1 position on the U.S. charts. Enjoy the video!

In 1989, The Cure released their album, Disintegration. They released this song, Pictures of You, as a single in January, 1990. This song has been burned into everyone’s memory because of the HP commercials a few years back that used this song. It’s a great song, and this is the full version of the video. Enjoy the video!

In 1990, INXS released their 7th album, X, and this song, Suicide Blonde, was the first single off the album. It reached the top 10 in the U.S. The song was actually written about Michael Hutchense’s girlfriend at the time, Kylie Minogue. She was required to dye her hair platinum blonde for a role in the movie, The Delinquents, and was quoted by Hutchence in an interview in ’89 as saying “I’m going suicide blonde today”.
