God, I still remember going tidal rafting in the Bay of Fundy, and the whole road trip was Big Shiny Tunes 2 and the Godzilla soundtrack.
I literally don’t think there is a more 90s CD that exists besides the 1998 Godzilla soundtrack.
In Canada we have a “Canadian Content” requirement that dictates 35% of all media content on our television/radio stations must be Canadian in origin. This occasionally gives Canadians a slightly altered worldview about what kind of music was popular in “”“”America”“”” during any given decade (apparently ‘Prozzak’ just did not happen in the US the way it did here????).
'Drinking in L.A.' was a moderate radio hit in Canada, but more importantly, it was chosen to help fill out the CanCon roster of the compilation album, BIG SHINY TUNES 2, which - and I am not exaggerating here - was basically the fucking bible to every kid and teenager who fancied themselves above the “pop trends” of the late 90s (although I personally swear by Big Shiny Tunes 3, because it has both Radiohead AND Placebo and not a single instance of goddamn Sugar Ray).
I’ve never thought to check out Bran Van 3000 beyond that one song even though it’s a nostalgic favourite of mine! I guess it’s never too late!
My laptop fan and notebook cooling pad broke on the same day, so my room is very, very quiet but I am anticipating some exciting adventures in unexpected overheating in the near future!!!!!!
