Bad 90s Green Screen Playlist

A couple of days ago, I was struck by the sudden, inexplicable urge to hear a dance track I remembered loving back in college called "Move Any Mountain". I couldn't remember the name of the artists, so I popped the title into a search and came back with a hit on YouTube. Eureka! The band was called the Shamen, and the track was even more awesome than I remembered. The video, however, was unintentionally hilarious in it's desperately earnest attempt to be avant garde. The director used just about every crayon available in his early 90s box, including the green screen. 

Then YouTube led me down a virtual rabbit hole of 90s green screen videos when it popped  Technotronic's "Pump Up the Jams" into the sidebar. I couldn't resist a look, and as I watched, I was suddenly reminded of how ubiquitous this particular effect was in videos of that era. So I decided to put together a playlist just for grins. It also serves as an excellent early 90s fashion primer. Enjoy!

Like I said, excellent song.

While Felly Kilingi may not have performed the actual
vocals on this track, she sure could rock a fanny pack!

This video prompted my very own Lady Miss Kier
phase- polyester mini, headband, flip, and all.

I do now realize that this track kinda sucks.

Nenah Cherry manages to make the 'round the way look classy.

I will always have a soft spot for De La.

What did I leave out? Feel free to comment and let me know.
