Female Artists Of The 90s Playlist

Jewel Artist

After a long hiatus, it is back to the playlists. They have been fairly popular in the past and I hope that they continue to be. This time Rizzo Music takes a look back on some artists that don’t get enough credit. There were several female artists that defined a section of the music being developed in the 90s. There was the pop side, with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Jennifer Lopez, which I tried to stay away from. Then there was the side that I enjoyed, with deep ballads from Sarah Mclachlan and alternative rock from the hugely popular Alanis Morissette.

Here I showcase my top ten female artists from the 90s with No Doubt thrown in there because to ignore the impact this group had on the music world would be a shame. Most likely you will recognize most of these songs as all of them were fairly popular. My favorites from this list have to be the first two songs with Sarah’s “Sweet Surrender” and Jewel’s “Hands”.

That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoyed it.

Top 10 Songs You Should Know
1. Sarah McLachlan – Sweet Surrender
2. Jewel – Hands
3. Paula Cole – Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?
4. Sheryl Crow – Everyday Is A Winding Road
