These were my Top 5 hits exactly 20 years ago this weekend – Sunday February 15TH 1998.
Aside from the hottest boy bands in the land (in 1998) there were 3 obscure one-hit-wonders topping my chart back then – and a lot of dancing (and partying) for this 30-year-old at the time. The late-1990s were a fun time for me, but in hindsight it was the continuation of a long and steady descent in my life both professionally and privately. That descent would continue for 13 years until my Lord And Savior Jesus Christ stepped in and saved and rescued me during the Summer of 2006. It’s good to look back at where I came from – knowing that I’m in a much better place today. I see God’s light now.
Ecclesiastes 7:10 (ESV) – Say not, “Why were the former days better than these ?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.
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 final weekend of February of 1988.
