Sidepodcast Hangout - What would you bring back from the 90s? // Music and technology nostalgia are the talk of the town

Published by Christine Blachford

Microsoft have a rather good advert doing the rounds at the moment, and whilst it is for IE so we can discard it, it's also celebrating everything that was great about the 1990s. What with that, and my discovery of the ITV2 series The Big Reunion, in which six pop bands from that era get back together, I'm on a bit of a 90s kick at the moment. There was so much good stuff about in that decade, what would you bring back if you could?




  • The Microsoft thing: www.youtube.com/w…tch?v=qkM6RJf15cg

    And The Big Reunion: en.m.wikipedia.or…i/The_Big_Reunion

  • Hello :)

    There is so much amazing from the 90's I don't even know where to begin. The Crystal Maze is one thing I'd bring bacl but it MUST have Richard o;brian.

  • I would bring back Ferrari being hopeless and never winning.

  • Also the Game Boy Colour. Best handheld ever.

  • Afternoon all.

  • Hi Will

  • I'd quite like to bring back the care-free attitude that I had, what with not having any proper responsibilities back in the 90s.

  • Oooh, also, Noel's House Party. Put that on at 6, Doctor Who at 7, Saturday nights are sorted again.

  • *mr c rides into town a shooting and a hollering*

    i think christine, who got up crazy early for amazon reasons, may have gone to sleep. ergo, by default, i shall be your attractive host for the day.

  • Also the Game Boy Colour. Best handheld ever.

    surely not better than the green and black screen? i played tetris on that until my eyes fell out. then played it again.

  • i think christine, who got up crazy early for amazon reasons, may have gone to sleep. ergo, by default, i shall be your attractive host for the day.

    She probably deserves sleep for producing another book

  • surely not better than the green and black screen? i played tetris on that until my eyes fell out. then played it again.

    Did you have those dreams that involved all those falling tetrominoes?

  • surely not better than the green and black screen? i played tetris on that until my eyes fell out. then played it again.

    the game boy is an all out classic that can't be touched but I always found the colour more memorable. One of the first games i played on it on my birthday was F1 Racing Championship. It wasn'y very good though :)

    Happy memories of the Zelda games though

  • Did you have those dreams that involved all those falling tetrominoes?

    ha! no, but now i wish i had :)

  • She probably deserves sleep for producing another book

    there's no excuse, i'll be docking her pay for this, mark my words.

  • also the 90's brought the greatest f1 game of all time

    Not as good as the Sinclair Spectrum game that only had Silverstone and because it did so few colours the tyres were red

  • Not as good as the Sinclair Spectrum game that only had Silverstone and because it did so few colours the tyres were red

    it had about 8 colours. surely one of them was black?

    Yes but the track had to be black

  • Yes but the track had to be black

    ahhhh. no grey at all? that's unreal.

  • ahhhh. no grey at all? that's unreal.

    After that though there was an Amiga game with James Hunt's brother's face plastered all over it and it had adjustable wings. Serious stuff

  • ahhhh. no grey at all? that's unreal.

    different times :)

    what about music in the 90s? i can remember things like games and tv shows and trends like tamagotchis and pogs, but my music knowledge of the 90's is rubbish.

    apart from saturday night by whigfield.

  • ...I shouldn't have confessed that

  • After that though there was an Amiga game with James Hunt's brother's face plastered all over it and it had adjustable wings. Serious stuff

    his brother?

    britpop! best decade ever.

    there was noel falling out with liam, liam falling out with noel. liam not turning up to sing, noel singing instead. a whole musical soap opera.

    it all came back to liam basically.

  • How can that be nearly 20 years ago???

    #thenewmrc

  • In the 90's I was finishing college and I liked that life. That would be a good thing to bring back. I'd enjoy it more while it happened rather than always wanting to get it over with.

    Teaching kids is always 'exciting'. But nothing special I don't think.

Microsoft have a rather good advert doing the rounds at the moment, and whilst it is for IE so we can discard it, it's also celebrating everything that was great about the 1990s. What with that, and my discovery of the ITV2 series The Big Reunion, in which six pop bands from that era get back together, I'm on a bit of a 90s kick at the moment. There was so much good stuff about in that decade, what would you bring back if you could?
