It’s A 90s Thing # 42 – Head & Heart

It’s A 90s Thing # 42 – Head & Heart

After providing data for hundreds of Soundwaves 10@10 episodes, Intern Steve steps into the spotlight with a deep dive into All Things 90s. Almost every episode will be two parts … each half a distinctly different subject from its counterpart … seemingly unrelated pop culture and music topics that (more often than not) will have a connection!

Today we’re going to hear a song written as a reaction to the Iraq war. We’re going to hear alternative country song and we’re going to hear a song off an album originally titled “I Hate Myself And I Want To Die”. Today’s trivia question: In the mid-’90s, it was a common tactic for record labels to withhold singles for purchase in order to boost album sales, which meant those songs couldn’t make the Hot 100 despite getting lots of airplay. The strategy certainly worked for one of our albums today. Can you guess which artist sold 16 million copies of their first album?
