My musical tastes are, for the most part, stuck in the 1990’s. In my defense, this was the formative time of my life and was a great era for music in almost all genres. I was a fan of country, rock, and alternative, as well as R&B/hip hop, largely because there so much great music being created during this decade. It is a fact. Without getting into a full dissertation on the subject, please know that if you are in my presence when a good 90’s song is played, I may start singing along.
