And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90′S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90′s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80′s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #13 is … “Heal It Up” by Concrete Blonde. They hit it big with the fabulous Bloodletting (one of my fav. albums of the 90′s) and its Top 20 hit “Joey”, but they couldn’t maintain the momentum with the followup Walking In London or their excellent final studio album of the decade, 1993′s Mexican Moon. “Heal It Up” was the first single from that album, but didn’t chart on the Hot 100. Johnette Napolitano was one of the greatest rock vocalists of the decade, and the song demonstrates her expressive sonic boom.
