Okay, its not a 90s MOVIE...but a 90s BAND:
Does anyone remember EMF? I just head the song "Unbelievable" and it made me remember how much I liked this band in the early 90s.

They had an album called SCHUBERT DIP and every song on it was great (although I guess most people whould consider them a One Hit Wonder, with "Unbelievable" being their one big hit). Even though that cd came out in the early 90s it was really 80s-sounding.

Anyone else remember them? (And, yes, I am aware that they now use "Unbelievable" in a CRUMBLES cheese commercial "You're crumble-lievable. " Oh brother!)

Part of the Manchester scence along with The Farm, Ocean Color Scene, James et all.

The "OH" in 'Unbelievable' is an Andrew 'Dice' Clay sample.

I have the cassette of that album in my attic. I may have to get it and listen to it now that you reminded me about it.

It was just about the worst use of a hit song for a TV commercial since Modern English's "Melt With You" was used in a fast-food burger commercial several years ago. (Can't remember if it was Burger King or Carl's Jr., though)

BURGER KING. RITZ crackers used Melt With You also. My daughter who is 8 loved both commercials because she said "Thats my song!" whenever they would go on.

EMF made big bickies selling "Unbelievable" to the Australian Football League.

It is sad that their bassist Zac Foley died. [Frown]
