Today we shall be discussing 1994!
The first thing that springs to mind when I think of 94 is always the USA World Cup. Roberto Baggio, Maradonna and Diana Ross are the main three individuals that come to mind and I reckon it was the first international tournament that I took properly seriously and remember watching every second of every game. Italia 90 and Euro 92 I definitely watched England and some of the other stuff but this time I was properly serious.
Music wise, Definitely Maybe, Crooked Rain Crooked Rain and His n Hers would be my top three albums. Loads of good hip hop again too with stuff like Ilmatic, The Beatnuts, The Main Ingridient and Ready to Die.
1994 was strong for films with Pulp Fiction, Clerks and Shawshank Redemption being my top three.
At the time I would have been 9 years old, still obsessed with wrestling even though it wasn't cool anymore and spending most of my time playing football for my local team and playing Super Kick Off on my Sega Master System. 94 feels a much stronger year than 93 to me so I am giving it a solid FOUR STARS.
top 3 albums - definitely maybe (oasis) - parklife (blur) - vauxhall & i (morrissey) the holy bible (manics) was very close tbh. favourite film - pulp fiction (shawshank very close behind) watching/listening that year - x files/lois & clark/gladiators/goodnight sweetheart/corrie/eastenders(the sharron/grant/phil storyline was everything tbh)/fantasy football/italian football on ch4/world cup 94 listening to the radio (invicta fm) - ian collins in the evening the christmas chart of 94 was tense (oasis at 3) favourite song - i'll choose 2 again supersonic (oasis)
now my heart is full (morrissey)
memories of the year - being skint and having to bike to school (3 miles) instead of getting the bus/got an amiga that year and swos 94/95 was just huge tbh/hastings that summer was good fun (setting off stink bombs in the tower block & this woman was going fucking nuts at us )/gave my dad an electric shock after messing with his telly (for a wolves-boro game) he weren't a happy bunny with me 'wtf ave u dun with this telly'
