Angela Lansbury is not a fan of the NBC remake of Murder, She Wrote. “I think it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote, because Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. … So I’m sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it’s their right.”

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.
And now … THE TOP TEN LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! And here we are one last time. At #1 is … “Possession” by Sarah McLachlan. This is not only my choice for #1 on this list, It’s also my choice for the greatest pop single of the 90’s. Written about an obsessed fan (who would later sue her and commit suicide), it was the song that first turned me on to, not just Sarah, but all of the female singer-songwriters who would help rule the decade. But there’s no denying that the song was a big flop on the charts, peaking on the Hot 100 at #73 in June 1994. Surprisingly, it didn’t do all that well in Canada, where it hit #27, and it didn’t chart anywhere else in the world. But to me it represents the best of the 90’s. Below you can see two versions of the music video. The glossy international version and the original version, which is very … Canadian. Sidebar – I just realized that three of the top four artists on this list are Canadian women. I don’t know what it means, but it’s … something.
Thanks for indulging me with my 90’s pop music moment. Starting on Wednesday, we’ll be back to the more familiar with … The Top 25 Sci-Fi Films Of The 80’s!
