Top 5 most iconic 1992 tunes

Post by lentrix » Tue Aug 14, 2007 8:51 am

If you could name your top 5 most iconic tunes from 1992 what would they be ?

What 5 (and only 5) would some up 92 for you ? - mine are:-

1. 2 Bad mice - Hold it down.
2. Acen - trip 2 the moon pt 1
3. Graphic ep - Total XTC
4. Doc Scott - NHS EP
5. Satin Storm - out of my Head.

I could add loads more, but for me these are the ones (prob change next week!!)

These did it for me back in time (quite commercial, but in 1992 I only knew the trax which entered the charts)

- FSOL - Papua New Guinea
- Felix - Dont You Want Me
- Sy-Kick - Nasty (Remix)
- Urban Hype - A Trip To Trumpton
- Urban-Shakedown - Some Justice

Remember listening to these most in 1992 in summer and so they reminded me most of this year. Could also add Shut Up & Dance - Ravin - Im Ravin and Bassheads - Back To The Old Skool

my personal FAVOURITES would be:

Krome & Time - This sound is for the Underground
Dance Conspiracy - Dub War
Release - Dance In Eden
Sonz of a Loop da Loop Era - Peace & Loveism
Acen - Close Your Eyes (Optikonfuzion)

that represent 1992 to me, is a different story, considering i was 8 at the time and was just discovering the likes of 2 Unlimited :lol:

I used to like it, but can't stand it these days - too over played.
Still like the others though :)

mine would have to be

1. DUB WAR-DANCE CONSPIRACY
2. THIS SOUND IS FOR THE UNDERGROUND - KROME + TIME
3. OUT OF SPACE - PRODIGY
4. BAPTISED BY BUB - CRIMINAL MINDS
5. JERICHO - PRODIGY

These 5 stand out for me most from that year as massive iconic tracks
