The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1998

  1. Walkin’ On The Sun – Smash Mouth
  2. Tubthumping – Chumbawamba
  3. Mo Money Mo Problems – The Notorious B.I.G. Ft. Puff Daddy & Mase
  4. Legend Of A Cowgirl – Imani Coppola
  5. As Long As You Love Me – The Backstreet Boys

These were my Top 5 hits exactly 20 years ago this weekend – Sunday January 25TH 1998.

4 of those 5 hits above I still hear on a fairly regular basis, but one has become obscure over the past 20 years, and that’s “Legend Of A Cowgirl”. I just watched the music video on YouTube, and I forgot how wonderful this song was (and still is). It’s got catchy lyrics and a beat that I can dance to. Sadly this single is not available for sale on iTunes. (I just checked. I was going to buy it.)

I’ve been producing my own personal weekly hit music chart off and on for the past 30+ years. Next Friday I’ll go back another 10 years to the first weekend of February of 1988.
