This was around the time I started getting into music and watching MTV, it was hard to narrow my list down to 10, but I somehow overlooked "Fast Car", that would've been on my list. I also liked Circle in the Sand by Belinda Carlisle back then, I had a crush on her at the time.

Nick, you should definitely do a Rock edition for this year, so many ballads and emerging alternative bands.

Pretty good year for music, though some i still don't like.  I put the Beach Boys Kokomo on there because while on our honeymoon, we saw them making the video in Disney World outside the Grand Floridian, which opened up about 2-3 days before our honeymoon ended.
