Saturday Morning 1990′s Music Video (140)

Ahhhhhhh….Black Hole Sun. This video lands in the number two spot on the weird and totally subjective list of my 25 favorite songs from high school.

This song has it all.  It has one of the best opening guitar hooks of the grunge era, catchy (yet weird) lyrics that you can sing along too, and a wailing guitar solo.  As a bonus, the band looks kind of scary and cool (especially to a 16-year-old in Oklahoma City).  For all those reasons, this song dominated the “repeat track” selection on my CD player.  It also made me like Soundgarden way more than I should.  Seriously, I even liked this song. Weird.

Anyway, next week is the top song on my list.  Any guesses on what it will be?

  1. It is in these hills that Juan Valdez and his trusty goat gather coffee beans every morning

  2. Haven’t seen the whole list, but if I had to guess #1 I would say ” smells like teen spirit.”
