We luckily have the great Shatner version of "Common People".

 

I legitimately loved that album when it came out.  I need to listen to it again.

I didn't discover Has Been until well after the fact, but yes, Shatner acquitted himself quite well.  "Ideal Woman" is my favorite track.

I just re-listened to the entire "Has Been" album the other day.  Still holds up.

I then listened to parts of "Seeking Major Tom" (which I'd never listened to).  What a hot pile of shit.

Clearly, Ben Folds is some kind of genius.

To all the people talking about Has Been by William Shatner... I'm so glad you guys know it exists, and my mind exploded when I saw Common People was released here as an official C3 custom. I never expected that! That album is freaking brilliant, and you're exactly right as to why: Ben Folds. I love Ben Folds, and while I love Shatner and Star Trek, I never expected to enjoy a spoken word album. I've contacted the author of Rockin' the Suburbs with an offer to pitch the vocals, and I'd love to see more Ben Folds Five, speaking of awesome '90s bands... but no Brick, please. Ugh.

To be honest if it wasn't for c3 I wouldn't know Shatner did a cover of it.

Correcto! I grew up with '90s alternative rock/pop radio in the US! At the time I thought it was awful, but in retrospect, it was fantastic.

Nice list. I would add hundred mile high city from ocean colour scene. Would love some skunk anansie too. There's two soul asylum songs in the game. Including runaway train.

And Black Gold, which is a great tune as well. I've volunteered to do the vocals for Runaway Train, so look forward to that. :) Huge Dave Pirner fan here...

Thanks for pointing out Runaway Train, I never saw it due to filters. It's a good start maybe one day someone can help with it. Guitar only is not really going to go down well at many peoples parties.

 

I have taken Runaway Train out of the list as its in the game....

 

Sort of...

 

Also added Hundred Mile High City, if anyone has any other great 90's songs let me know, I'm trying to be quite mainstream in this list so please keep that in mind.
