This week, Adam takes you on a whirlwind musical tour back to 1992, the year he was born, and what he now considers a stellar year for music. From the hip-hop timeless brilliance of Dre and Snoop, through to the eternal ‘I Will Always Love You’ by the late Whitney Houston.
All of the tracks in this week’s playlist are still played as frequently today; the unforgettable electric intro to guitar-Jesus Clapton‘s Mona Lisa ‘Layla’ crashing into one of the most memorable heavy riffs of all time with Nirvana‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Take That provide their tear inducing ‘A Million Love Songs Later’ and RATM give their middle-finger to the world with the loudest ever protest hit ‘Killing In The Name Of’.
U2‘s grandiose ‘One’, House of Pain‘s brutally energetic ‘Jump Around’ and SNAP!‘s 92 House six-thousand time sampled classic ‘Rhythm Is A Dancer’ roll into the soothing mellow tones of Boys II Men‘s piece-de-resistance ‘End of the Road’.
All in all, it appears in a round about way, Adam’s birth sparked off some unbelievable singles.
