The Mixologist: The Forgotten, Vol. 1

Slide526By Spencer. Great bands still make forgettable songs. And forgotten songs, sometimes, can still be pretty damn great. For this edition of The Mixologist, I’m featuring some lesser-known tracks from some of the best bands of the 90s. Some of them were singles that tanked. Some of them were album tracks that were wrongly overshadowed. Some were B-sides that only saw the light of day among the true fanatics. Whatever the case, these are songs that deserve your love, and hopefully when heard in a different context, they’ll get the audience they deserve.

  1. Some very nice selections here. One of the pluses of the CD Era was that you had to buy an entire album based on the strength of one song. This was a risk. Sometimes it was a bust (Sponge, Rotting Pinatas—anyone?). Other times it held these secrets–songs that could be mine and I supposed mine alone. “God of Wine” was one of those. Nice Oasis B-Side and great, great REM track.

    • Good point, Antony. This is why I still consider myself an album man (whereas most of my friends buy only individual tracks they like). Sometimes, a song has to grow on me but it becomes a favorite.

      “God Of Wine” was one I actually discovered thanks to the live show. T3B was opening for U2, and were surprisingly good. That song stuck with me, even though I didn’t remember it from the album, and I went back and gave it a second chance. Well worth it….

Go ahead. Say something!
