This Supercut of ’90s Alt-Rock Vocal Hooks Overloads on Nostalgia
Thanks to the people at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation, our brains are now totally useless. Watching their video caused the parts of our brain where songs get stuck to start burning out like old fuses. Thanks a lot, CBC Music.
This supercut puts together every “oooh” and “aaah” and “laaa” and “yeeeah” that flooded the airwaves during the era of grunge. There are some obvious ones, like the “doo doo doo’s” from Third Eye’s Blind’s ‘Semi-Charmed Life’ and the “eeeye yi yi’s” from Alice in Chain’s ‘Man in the Box.’
The video also reminds us of a few of the one-hit wonders of the ’90s, including “aaah ooooh, gotchoo where I want you” from the Flys and “ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh” from Spacehog’s ‘In the Meantime.’
If you blink, you might miss Live’s ‘I Alone’ and Primitive Radio God’s ‘Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand.’ So pay attention.
