A podcast discussing Australian #1 Singles from the 90s...and more

It’s been 2ish years and 15 days since we took the time to release a 90 Percent Hits podcast, but we’re back, for a special episode, to pick out our favourite tunes by Prince. After all, Prince is most associated with the 1980s, but for anyone around in the early 1990s, he was as big as he’d ever been. Back when we were a regular podcast covering the #1 singles of the 1990s, we discussed ‘Cream’ by Prince and ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The RoomWorld’ by Prince Symbol The Artist For Squiggly, along with Prince-written songs like Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and Martika’s ‘Love…Thy Will Be Done’. To love pop music in the early 1990s is to have been exposed to Prince Rogers Nelson.
So (sadly) this is a commemoration of the life of our dearly beloved Squiggly (as he was known for much of the 1990s).
Episode …40ish: 90 Percent Prince!
In terms of what songs we each picked…well, you’ll just have to listen, won’t you?
In this ‘final episode’ of 90 Percent Hits, we look back on the experience of having to discuss these #1s. We ended up covering over a hundred of the things, all up, and we wondered what, if anything, we learned in the process (we make jokes, too).
Episode 39: The Final Episode
But don’t worry, we’re not done. It’s not really final final. This is more John Farnham announcing his ‘last’ tour final. Plans are afoot to cover other aspects of the musical 1990s in the usual us-talking-on-a-podcast form. After all, the #1 singles are just one way of looking at what’s going on…so stay tuned!
In this ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ episode, we each pick one song that was amongst the top 100 best selling singles of 1998!
As ever, make sure to check the tumblr over the next week as we’ll be posting more stuff about these songs and related things. Feel free to comment underneath the podcast tumblr post to tell us about your experiences with the songs, or to drop us a line at twitter, Facebook or the gmail (all of which have the username 90percenthits, of course). And it looks good if you rate us or review us on iTunes. And we’re always keen to hear other people’s experiences with these songs!
