The Hot 100 Countdown #93

93 'til Infinity was the debut album of the band Souls of Mischief... apparently. And number 93 proved tricky for all of us.

Alyson & Chris both came up with 93 Million Miles by Jason Mraz, an artist who does live in my record collection, but not with this song. I guess it's got something to do with how far away we are from the sun.

Charity Chic offered 93 Degrees In The Shade by Third World, which would have been a pretty good call if I'd owned it. Or if anyone else did, since it turns out the song is actually called 96 Degrees In The Shade. Sorry, CC!

Nobody came up with either of the two 93 songs I do have in my collection though.

I originally thought Do It! 93 by Death From Above might be something to do with the year it was recorded... until my research showed the band (originally called Death From Above 1979, just to confuse matters further) wasn't formed until 2001.

This week's winner though is this... from the charming Sweet Baboo, aka Gwynedd's Stephen Black. The version in my music collection is called Wolfie 93, and if the story Stephen tells in the video is anything to go by, I don't think 1993 has anything to do with it, since he can't have been very old in that year at all. No idea why it is called Wolfie 93 though...

Now... some of you have already given up on 92, but I do have a couple of options to choose from. Any guesses?

    1. It's that '90-something-fits-all' syndrome; every 90-number sounds right for a song, even if it's the wrong one!
      However I do have a 92, a proper 92! It's 92 Degrees by Siouxsie & The Banshees.

  2. I'm more or less stuck until we get to "76 Trombones".....*sigh*

  3. I was definitely stuck on this number until I went old school and hit the book shelves - Here is something I wouldn't have remembered myself but just watched a clip of them on TOTP. Pop Will Eat Itself with 92°F. I don't think it will your pick but glad I came up with something.

    Just spotted that C's pick is also 92 degrees but not the same one is it?

  4. 92 Degrees Fahrenheit - Pop Will Eat Itself

  5. 92 Tears. Wait, that's not right, is it?
