The 1990s offered various genres of music such as pop, rap, and alternative music. During the decade, listeners experienced significant changes in the style and appeal of music from the sexual lyrics of techno to the negativity of grunge to bubblegum pop.

If you enjoy music, I follow several bloggers that do a great job of posting history, videos and interesting facts relevant to music. Just to name a few-

The Sound of One Hand Typing

The Immortal Jukebox

Old Time Rock and Roll

To be flawless or lawless is foolish

Maybe a high sign for the ghoulish

There’s no waiting for Halloween

To dwell on the in-between

Donning a costume and a mask

Doesn’t rid you of the task

Hold on to your potential

Let goals be consequential

Do you waltz or do you boogie

That’s no excuse to play hookey

And remember to tune your forks

Then you won’t get out of sorts

Unless you don’t pay your bookie

Open your wallet and take a looky

You’re beguiling when your styling

But you didn’t get the memo

Is there simplicity in duplicity?

  1. Who would’ thunkit, back in the ’90s, that a Harvard education would some day seem like a bargain at over $23.5K a year ?(probably well over $100K to graduate by the time books, etc. have been bought) I don’t know how parents afford college at all these days!

    I always liked “Everybody Dance Now!” but I LOVED the video – watched once (no TV for decades so they’re almost all new to me) — then replayed so Tink and I could dance to it.

    I, too, follow The Immortal Jukebox – and will check out the other two as well. My fork’s tuned – I waltz AND boogie, and loved this post and poem. Thanks.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the video. I have to get up and dance when I hear this song. There’s an oldies night club in Atlanta called Johnnies Hideaway and this song is played frequently.

      Thanks for visiting and glad you liked my post.
