1001 Songs you must hear before you die - 1990's

Think you’ve heard it all? Think again.. Discover some new music

A selection of songs taken from the excellent book ‘1001 Albums you must hear before you die’ - obviously it didn’t make sense to post the full albums, so just one track has been selected from each (usually one of the ‘key tracks’ as judged by the writers). Unfortunately, some albums aren’t available on Spotify as of now, but most have representation in this playlist and most genres are represented, so it’s a great mixed bunch!
