For fifty weeks this year, we’re celebrating the music of a specific year every Saturday on WXPN. We’ll be choosing the years randomly; for this week’s #XPN5050, Bruce Warren is putting the musical spotlight on the year 1994.

Jeff Buckley’s Grace, Weezer’s blue album, Portishead’s Dummy, Nas’ Illmatic, Oasis’ (What’s The Story) Morning Glory, The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die…I could go on. The amount of classic albums released 25 years ago is unreal.

It was a good year for classic television, too. E.R. made its debut along with Friends, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and My So-Called Life.

On the big screen, the hits were Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, and The Shawshank Redemption, plus the ready-for-Halloween goth-tinged action/adventure of The Crow.
