What Music is really 90's music?

Before BL's Sadie's many where wondering this. I mean it really ain't common knowledge which music could define the 90's. I mean it was a hole ten years for crying out loud. But, sadly all those who went to BL's Sadie's still don't know what music really defined that decade. They got the VH1 completely retrospect point of view. The DJ completely ignored the obvious numbers that was recorded in the music business during those ten years.
One would think that the most played song of the 90's oughta be played at a dance with a 90's theme. Sadly, that song wasn't played. What is that song? Is it something by the Spice Girls, N*Sync, or perhaps Britney Spears. If you guessed any of the above you couldn't be any further from the truth. In fact, the most played song of the 90's was "I Should of Been a Cowboy" by Tobey Keith. Why wasn't this song played. Perhaps because none of us lived in the mainstream in the 90's. No one would know what was truly "in" in the 90's. I mean we give kids crap about listening to the Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana. So, perhaps teenagers gave us crap about liking N*Sync or the Backstreet Boys. Maybe, who knows. It's just a theory.
Another play at a 90's theme dance should be the artist who made the most money during the decade. Was he played? Once, again, no. But who was it? Garth Brooks. I mean if you think about it is a no brainer. But, then again we weren't mainstream in the 90's, so chances are that many of YOU wouldn't think of that.
Your probably wondering how I know this. The truth is it's common knowledge for anyone with my "label" (for lack of better word). I'm country when country isn't cool. Apparently it was cool in the 90's. You may think that country is cool now. But, what your listening to now more than likely ain't country. But, my friends that's a rant for another day. But, my point is that the 90's was country.

Just last night I was talking to a dear friend over AIM. She noted to me that the time was 11:11. She then instructed me to make a wish. I responded with what I believe to be the greatest bit of wisdom I've ever came up with. I said, "I don't believe in wishes. I think you want something you have to make it happen."
I firmly believe that wishing is a fullish thing. I do believe that praying is more affective. But regardless of what you want, it just won't happen with you sitting around just wishing for it happen. You'll just end up getting depressed.
In my life I had discovered people wish for primarily three things: love, wealth, and longevity.
If you want love, go out, and get that girl of your dreams attention. Make her fall in love with you back. Then ask her out when you get the first opportunity. Otherwise the best that can happen is y'all will become friends. And I know that sometimes that can hurt more than you and her going in completely separate ways.
If you want wealth, get your education. Do your best in school. Do everything you can now to get workplace experience. Not only will that look good on your college application but it will also help once you get in the workplace to climb the ladder of success.
Longevity is the thing that you have the most control over. You really have to eat right. And instead of going home right after school, stay a half an hour and get some circuit work in. Stay away from drugs and alcohol, eat right, and work out if you want to be as close as possible to immortality.
I'm not really saying that there's anything wrong with wishing. All I can say, is be your own fairy godparent and make something happen. It's unbelievable how much control you really have over your life. Take advantage of it.
