Best of 1994 Mix


Summer of 1994 was when I moved to Philly and I was getting a bit back on the music bandwagon.  Problem was I had very limited resources.  It's funny how today you can buy a phone for $30, pay for a streaming service, and carry all the music of the world with you.  That was not true in 1994.  Music was something you had to purchase or listen to on the radio, and so I often found myself listening to the same CDs I had over and over.  A lot of nights falling to sleep listening to Quadrophenia.  Still I bought a few CDs and that is where this list mostly comes from, or songs that I really liked on the radio.
