'90s Best Songs/Song Writers

Going reverse chronological so it shows which years were the strongest. Multiple songs allowed per album/artist. No instrumentals as regarding them as more 'tracks' than songs and there was too much to pick from anyway. No extreme metal, no hip hop, not really any electronic - standard songs, you get the idea.
