Stuck in the 90's

Gaaah! Why can't I name artists today's hot artists except for mainstream ones like Justin Bieber, Adele, Lady Gaga and uhmmm, see?? 

It's so hard finding decent music nowadays. Auto tune is pretty much available to every artists plus listeners are so forgiving of repetitive lyrics as long as the beat is dance-worthy. Why can't we produce genius songs anymore like Bohemian Rhapsody or Making Love out of Nothing at all or I'd do Anything for Love. It's so sad that even our local bands produce more and more poorly revived songs. 

That's why, lo and behold, I have found a way to blast myself in the past. I found cool Youtube channels featuring 90's playlist. Yup, not just songs, but a playlist of full albums! My current thing right now is Pinoy 90's rock. That decade is very speacial. That was when I started loving music with the influence of my brother. You know how pinoy bands really rocketed back then. It was the glorious era of Eraserheads, Rivermaya (original members), The Youth, Agaw Agimat, Rizal Underground, The Dawn, Yano, etc. Now, listening to them not only makes my work 10,000 times more fun, but also makes me nostalgic in a very unexplainable blissful way.

I know being excited about discovering youtube playlist is kinda lame, makes me wonder why haven't I done it years ago! Oh well, I can still take advantage of it now, as they say, it's good while it lasts (in relation to SOPA sh*t, oops).
